====Sheet Metal Stacker Automation====
A large sheet metal blaster had a stacking system engineered by the company that manufactured the system. Unfortunately the cart that the plates stacked on became too heavy when fully loaded to move out of the guarding by hand as designed. Due to this, I was tasked with creating a solution.
After reading an old book on pneumatic design, I designed a pnuematic system that would extend and retract this cart, while purging all pressure when the lever is released. This added feature was a safety feature to ensure that if a forklift hit the cart when unloading the sheets, it would not damage the air cylinders.
