Abstract

The purpose of this work is to develop the material handling trolleys using finite element analysis and validate the design. The main area of focus in this project is to reduce the weight and cost of the trolleys by designing a new development design. The existing trolley designed by the industry uses heavy trolleys without considering loading conditions which in turn leads to a higher factor of safety increasing the overall cost of the Trolleys. This work presents a finite element analysis of a procedure to model and simulate trolleys used in the automotive parts supplier industry, especially in car component manufacturing companies for shifting or transporting the different parts. In this study, the design is carried out using CATIA software, Pre-processing work such as meshing and setting static loading condition has been set up in Hyper mesh and static analysis of the trolley is performed using finite element software ABAQUS. The Von-Mises yield principle has been used to determine the distribution of stress intensity. The proposed model has better results consider the existing model of the trolley.
