The Brief

The brief set to the students was to design and build a test rig that would simulate the forces placed on the Niftylift cage load cell in everyday use.

The Solution

The team built and tested an initial prototype from steel I-beam section and a custom hinge bracket. The team then hung weights from the rig in different positions to strategically simulate how the cell would react.

On the celebration and assessment day, the team represented Denbigh School and Niftylift well at the University of Hertfordshire. They presented to a panel of assessors and answered questions in detail about their report and project at their display stand.
