Can Crusher

This product takes 330ml drinks cans and crushes them ready for disposal.  It was designed from scratch as part of a group project for the Applications of Mechanics and Electronics for Design module in the final year of the Product Design & Technology BSc course. 

The design utilises an electronically controlled gear train and innovative 'Geneva' mechanism to index crushing.
