Easy to Assemble Equipment Stand, 400lbs ratingBlind

in Product Design held by chrisc5
TIME REMAINING: 12 days, 1 hour
Description:
We are looking to design an equipment stand for mini-split air conditioners that is easy and quick to assemble. It will be an outdoor stand, so it must withstand the weather, and hold up to 400lbs.

Currently the market leader is Quick Sling. This product is patented, so ours must be a different design. We are looking to improve the assembly speed, as it takes 20-30 minutes to assemble a Quick Sling QSMS1201.

Here is the Quick Sling product:
www.quick-sling.com/qsms1201

Here is the Quick Sling assembly video
www.youtube.com/watch

We were thinking maybe it's possible to reduce assembly speed by having a stand that's folded in the box and expands when you take it out (like a folding chair or folding table). This is just one idea. All options will be considered, use your imagination!
Wants:
- speed of assembly
- ease of assembly
- cost effective to manufacture
- must hold minimum 400 lbs
- must be adjustable to hold different equipment widths
- height adjustment would be a nice feature
Additional Information
*******
We've noticed many of the designs look very similar to the Quick Sling product example.

You don't have to limit yourself to the same style design

We would like to see some designs using different style stands as well, perhaps ones that are completely collapsible like these:

precisesports.com/carrom-accessories/carrom-folding-stands.html

These are just examples, feel free to get creative with it!

#26 Equipment Stand 400lbs_Concept 1 by Gregorius Giga
Hi chrisc5,
This is my first concept about what you need, only need 5-10 minutes for assembly, maybe less than 5 minutes because that concept was very easy to assembly and quite strong for 400lbs. I have provided a few of rendering images, animation (.mp4) to present how to assembly and how its works, and the STEP Files for a few positions to make you easier while checking the model. Really happy to work in this contest. Please give your feedback and feel free to tell me if you need a modification or if something is missing.
Thanks a bunch, Giga

#18 FACS by wadihh
Hi there, as you requested, I have designed a foldable air conditioner stand (FACS) that meets your specifications. The model is very easy to assemble, you attach the Pipe_X to themselves and the joints with bolts and nuts as shown in the Solidworks file.(Note: Joints_T goes at the top and Joints are the bottom feet). Then, you simply attach the Frame to the base and then the Sliding_Frames to the frame Finally, you attach the Height_Pipes"that are here to support the whole stand". As you wanted the height is adjustable by simply changing the Height pipe with longer or shorter pipes (all the pipes used are 3/4" steel pipes). For manufacturing this model all u need is a 3d printer to print the Joints and the Joints_T, a welding machine to weld the frame together by using some 1 by 1" square tubes, some 1 by 2 square tubes and some 1/3" thick sheet metal. That's pretty much it. Hope You enjoy building and using it.

Hi,
I would like to say thanks for the constest. I added solidworks files and step file of the semi_concept design and some screenshots in the rar file. When you check the design, you will see a foldable equipment stand. it is easy to assemble you just need to assemble one screew on both side. that is it. You can see folded and unfolded positions of the stand. I added semi concept design. there could be minor changes upon your request. It is easy to make manufature ready the parts.
in this design you just need couple of manufacture techniques such as: sheet metal laser cut and bending, profile laser cut and bending and some welding for the foots. that is it. it is very cost effective.
Lastly like your request the length , width and height of the stand are adjustable. If you choose my design, we can work on the design togather for your requests, then I can make manufacture ready the parts. I will not need much time. On the other hand I can make some analysis for the weight as well upon request.
Thank you

#14 Equipment Stand, 400lbs by Salim Benyoucef
Hello,
The design that I published here is with safety factor of 3, all beams are with stainless steel.
The design is unique and complex, however easy to be manufactured, easy in storage, and could take 10 minute in assembly. Some trusses are made with steel sheet, therefore should be manufactured in cutting laser or waterJet, and finally bended.
All fastener and dimensions are in Metric unit.
Best regards
Salim

Hello!
I think, you can use a laser cut pipe construction. On this way you can eliminate almost all screws.

Hello,
I published two different type of stand with all details that you need in case you'll manufacture the frame. The first one was without connector joint, however could be easily stored. The second could be easily fold. I designed the both designs in the intent what you're looking that can hold up to 400lbs and withstand to the weather.
To satisfy the constraints the design should be complex and that what I did, otherwise I could easily design frame such as scissor or similar. So far I didn't understand what you're looking for ?
Best regards
Salim.

Please can you advise whether you have a preference for a metric or inch based design, i.e. for tubing section, fastener standards etc?

"...must be adjustable to hold different equipment widths..." Can you give any limits within which to make the adjustment?
