Medical Bin & Cover Re-design

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Redesign of our medical storage bins and cover access methods. The overall industrial and mechanical design initiative should explore new methods and ways to reduce lid opening space. (See attached document for full details.)
Wants:
Looking for most unique and realist functional design that minimizes parts/cost while also meeting design objectives. Improved industrial design aesthetic is also an evaluation criteria.
Software:
  1. SolidWorks (2013)
Additional Information
Conceptual 3D Designs okay, complete full detail not required. Looking for multiple conceptual concepts. Rough 3D CAD okay, strict dimensional details not critical at this point. Just looking for multiple rough CAD innovative solutions/concepts.

#3 Medical Box Redesign by Chandandeep Singh
The product has cover in two portions.
And the two can slide onto a slot made in the box either together or independently.
The two portions of the cover are connected by a hinge and can rotate freely with respect to each other.
Image 1 shos full closed box
Image 2 shows opening one portion. (This is an additional feature in case the user needs to open one half.)
{Alternatively to reduce the no. of components 1 part cover can be used}
Image 2 and 3 show partially opening the part 2 of the cover.
Image 4,5 and 6 shows sliding the two portions together.
Note that the model is made just to illstrate the concept and the parts other than the box might not be dimensionally perfect.
However if satisfied with the concept detailed design will be made.
Kindly let me know your opinion on this concept.
In case you have any problem with this one, I am willing to improve the undesirable feartures.

Large and small bin.
The movement of the cover open / close going forwards / backwards.
The cover has tabs on the sides inside which slide along the guide slits made in the body bin.
The body of bin has a ledge around the perimeterfor bin placement in the table frame.
Table frame and the cover is not in conflict with the opening of a cover.

#21 MediBin01 by Jezdo
This design base on the lowest cost manufacturing method and very easy to assemble.
The bin is vacuum formed plastic
dividers are plastic sheet
cover is Aluminum plate
and a couple stainless steel wire parts
Every parts of this product can be easily disassembled for the ease of cleaning.
The bin has a locking system which can be lock and unlock easily.
I have many years in Die-casting and various Molding industries for many years
so you can be assured that the bin is designed with proper shape for vacuum molding.
You can see Medibox in action and other details in the pictures zip file.
I provided the model in 2 file formats, STEP as you prefer and Parasolid for better compatibility. (I made it in Siemens NX)
I hope you'll like it.
Joe.

I had redesigned some parts from the MediBin01
- redesign the hinge wire for better stability and easier to assembly.
- redesign the cover
- the bin had been modified to compatible with the hinge wire
The bin is designed with proper shape for vacuum molding, no undercut shape.
In this entry, the models of holder frame and small bin are already provided.

The aesthetics of the case is improved
Improved lid opening
Easy cleaning
The hinges were replaced by wire. Low cost. Although you can use hinges if you wish
Internal slots for inserting dividing panels

#37 lid with sliding covers providing access to 2 inner compartments by Mike A
This lid design is based on 14 inner compartments. The sliders are friction fit with small locking knobs ( similar to the locking tabs on a plastic box for paper clips ) near the top to prevent accidental opening when the larger cover is flipped open to give access to all of the compartments needing refilling.

Thank you very much to Rick G,

Came in late - Observations
This should be all about particulates. Which means no overhead hinge points, no pockets or gaps where P.M. can hide, cover should not rub on box when opening/closing, cover should open without hands or sleeves being over the top of products. I would use vacuum formed cups with smooth internal corners to hold the products. They are so cheap that they could be disposable is desired. This would eliminate 6 potential gaps for each compartment where P.M. would hide. Can I get my design in late?

Hi Jezdo,
Wireframe method and dimensions will most likely change based on new design, therefore, not critical at this point. Please feel free to generate your own basic wire frame. Please note, current wire diameter for wire frame is roughly 0.312 inches.
Thank you,
Rick

Could you provide dimensions of the current wire frame support.
I'll design the bin that compatible with your wire frame, so they will be swappable with current system.

The length and depth of the Bin overall sizes, are there internal dimensions or dimensions of the outer edges?

Hi Mohammed,

Good day, Rick!
More than 3 weeks before the end of the contest.
I added his own version of the concept of bin last Sunday.
I was a bit changed version of your concept to account for the fact that the of bin should be placed in the table frame.
I want to ask you how you look at my option of bin concept.
Your improvement suggestions, comments, etc.
Is it necessary to further explain the concept of my of bin?

Rupak,

When placed on the work surface, bin top opening is parallel to work surface. When it is installed in the product it is at 30 degrees. Did this answer your question?

@ RickG,

Thanks for your reply with clear information.

In continuation of Q/A sl. No. 2; while the box in use, we have to place it only in the holder (wire frame) at the edge of the work surface or, we can also place it on the work surface at an angle of 30 degree?

Regards,
Rupak B.

Rupak,

1. The current product uses a vac form with a taper Angle of ~2 Degrees
2. When in use, it is set at 30 degree angle. When bin needs to be restocked, it is removed from its holder and placed flat on a table top with bin cover facing upward.
3. I don't think the bin assembly requires a handle. Typically, the worker uses both hands and picks it up the bin from the edges.

Dear RickG (Buyer),

I have few questions.

1. What is the Bottom Dimensions (Length & Width) or Bottom Taper Angle of the Box?
2. When in use, it will be laying on the working table at 30 degree angle?
3. It will require any handle like a basket?

Regards,
Rupak B.

Hey RickG, I have uploaded the stp files as well as 6 images illustrating various positions. Only 1 is visible here. Please let me know if all the 6 images are visible to you. Else please send me your email id, I will mail you as these are crucial to understanding the conceptual design.

Dear Juan.N
Regarding the work space. The bin is removed from the work space for restocking of supplies. The wire frame is the current method to hold the bin & lid assembly while in use. Although we use the wireframe today to hold the bin at it's 30 degree angle, the wireframe is not of much importance because we will modify the method of holding and supporting the newly designed bin assembly (if necessary) based on the new design direction selected.
Did this answer your question?
Rick
Wed, 23 Mar 2016 08:51:31 +0000
Is the workspace a must to be uninstalled when the bin is sent for refilling?
If the workspace is attached but can be kept while not in used, is it acceptable?

Decker,
Cost is very critical, staying with a vac form tub would help with that aspect, and yes, staying with and aluminum cover could also be cost effective. Again, looking for innovative solutions with a strong focus on cost. Volume on these parts are fairly low, roughly 500 to 750 parts per year.

Angled Keyboard Slide
The design requires a clean simple method with minimized parts and manufacturing costs. Product is low volume, 250 to 500 pieces per year. We are interested in minimizing capital tooling costs. Design challenge is to design a keyboard slide platform that sits at a 32.5 degree angle (see attached documents). Keyboard slide needs to easily lock in upward position when not in use, and needs to easily be released and slide downward when in use. The keyboard slide is on a cart platform, so when the cart is being moved around, if it gets bumped, we do not want the keyboard slide to dislodge and slip into the down position.
