You are required to research, design and prototype a selection of tool organisers that are ready for production and are tailored towards a specific market sector, for use with Niftylift's 2 man cages. These market ready products should have the option of being sold as separate products or offered as an option on new machines.
The students researched, designed and prototyped a tool storage system to be used on Nifty's ToughCage, which specifically targeted the Construction, Tree Surgery, Electrician and Painting/Decorating market sectors.
The solution is ergonomically designed both to fit to the body whilst carrying and present tools and equipment to the operator at a suitable working height. This design incorporated a universal base, with modular, sector specific lids.
This year's team has produced a very promising outcome, and has already had much interest from customers.
