Honors Thesis


Parker-Hannifin is an aerospace company located in Fort Worth, Texas. A large part of their business entails creating custom metal pipes that are used for aerospace applications. These pipes are all bent and cut at different specifications. Currently, the method being used to cut these pipes takes a lot of storage space, it is lengthy, it uses unsafe methodology and it adds up to be costly. My team and I were commissioned by Parker-Hannifin to design a system that will alleviate these problems. The solution that this team has proposed will save the company storage space, lower the time it takes to cut the pipes at the correct specifications, save the company money and improve the safety of the employees.
