: MAMITAG, Surname Masters in Engineering TOPIC PRESENTATION Topic No. I. General Subject Area Application of Electrical Automotive II. Specific Topic Design and Development of a Motorized Screw Jack III. Specifics of Research A. Introduction An automotive jack is a device used to raise all or part of a vehicle into the air in order to facilitate repairs. Most people are familiar with the basic car jack (manually operated) that is still included as standard equipment with most new cars. These days, a car jack is an important tool to have in our vehicle due to unknown upcoming event such as flat tire in our journey. Changing a flat tire is not a very pleasant experience. Moreover, the ‘USMA’ report on the Integration and Performance of Women at West Point in Proceedings (July 1998) reveals sex-norming schemes. Navy studies show that only 12% of women can accomplish the two-person stretcher carry, a requirement critical to ship security. Women may be able to drive a five-ton truck, but need a man's help if they must change a tire. Women have a much lighter skeleton that means, among other things, she can’t pull more forces as well as men and are at greater risk of skeletal injuries. RENATO First Name ORAIN Middle Name
In Australia. 160 injuries are associated with car jacks each year. Furthermore.Usually the car purposely tries to get a flat tire at the least opportune moments. All jacks and lifts must meet a set number of performance standards in order to be certified. Injuries have ranged from amputation to fractures and crush injuries. over the last four years at least 19 people have been crushed and killed by a vehicle while they were working (Ariffin 2008). during emergency. Improvement in automotive car jack is really needed to make the tool more efficient. Some of the instances include rushing home from work. In some cases the worker was killed when the vehicle was not secured by chocks and the vehicle rolled on top of them. organizations were established to promote improvements in automotive lift technology. All the deaths were men and involved the vehicle being lifted or supported in the wrong way. As recently as the late 1990s. Working near a vehicle that is supported by a car jack can be fatal. you should be able to reach your house or the nearest service station. practical to use. With the spare installed. especially in the area of safety. business meeting or in the middle of the woods for instance. car lift or jack manufacturers were allowed to declare that their products were safe even though they did not meet any set standard. . Removing the flat tire and installing the car’s spare tire in place is the only solution because keep driving is not possible. On average. or the structures used to support the vehicle failed. This is a waste of time and can even endanger the car user’s life when jacking and changing the tire in hurry. Home mechanics are most at risk of this type of death or injury. changes in industry direction and most importantly high safety features. user-friendly. The correct use of jacks can prevent death or injury.
In light of such inherent disadvantages. wherein such lifts are raised and lowered via electrically-powered systems. heavy and also difficult to store. due to their sheer size and high costs of purchasing and maintaining electrically-powered car lifts. Such electrical-powered portable jacks not only remove the arduous task of lifting an automobile via manually-operated jacks. transport. These are due of safety features that are on conventional car jacks are not enough. carry or move into the proper position under an automobile. such jacks are generally not adapted to be readily disassembled and stored after automobile repairs have been completed. Available car jacks. Background of Study • Statement of the Problem In the repair and maintenance of automobiles (car). but further decrease the time needed to repair the automobile.B. However. Furthermore. Engineering is about making things simpler or improving and effective. . it is often necessary to raise an automobile to change a tire or access the underside of the automobile. Such a feature can be especially advantageous when it is necessary to repair an automobile on the side of a roadway or under other hazardous conditions. such lifts are not available to the average car owner. to the difficulties in assembling and setting up jacks. Accordingly. There also reports on car jacks which lead to a serious number of accidents. a variety of car jacks have been developed for lifting an automobile from a ground surface. available jacks are typically large. Such jacks resent difficulties for the elderly and handicapped and are especially disadvantageous under adverse weather conditions. however. commercial automobile repair and service stations are commonly equipped with large and hi-tech car lift. Suppose car jacks must be easy to use for pregnant women or whoever had problem with the tire in the middle of nowhere. are typically manually operated and therefore require substantial laborious physical effort on the part of the user. In addition.
It will give back problem in due of time. women(Hsu 1996) and are especially disadvantageous under adverse weather conditions. The purpose of this project is to encounter these problems. Suppose car jacks must be easy to use for pregnant women or whoever had problem with the tire in the middle of nowhere. Operator only needs to press the button from the controller without working in a bent or squatting position for a long period of time to change the tire. Tests have proven that the jack has the propensity to buckle well under the weight it is promoted to withstand. and it doesn’t meet the labeling or performance requirements of the standards for vehicle jacks. An electric car jack which has a frame type of design by using electric from the car lighter will be developed. transport. These presently available jacks further require the operator to remain in prolonged bent or squatting position to operate the jack. there were many who have expressed concerned about the dangers associated with the use of a vehicle jack that does not carry the weigh. This is for the safety precaution in case if the screw break. the safety features are also not enough for operator to operate the present jack.A specified jack purposed to hold up to 1000 kilograms. Moreover. Doing work in a bent or squatting position for a period of time is not ergonomic to human body. Available jacks present difficulties for the elderly. . carry or move into the proper position under an automobile. but tests undertaken by Consumer Affairs has revealed that is fails to work after lifting 250 kilograms and may physically break when it has a weight close to its 1000 kilograms capacity. heavy and also difficult to store. available jacks are typically large. Furthermore. Present car jack do not have a lock or extra beam to withstand the massive load of the car. While no injuries have been reported to date.
wear resistance.C. Select appropriate motor. Assemble the motorized screw jack. Specifically it seeks to: 1. ease of producing complicated parts and economical. 6. • Manageability (Scope and limitations) The project involves the designing and production of a motorized screw jack that could be easily operated by car owner and professional automotive mechanic. Figure 2 shows the parts of the proposed automatic screw jack. Research Description • Objectives The project aims to design and develop a motorized screw jack. lifting members. Select material to ensure good machinability. good ductility. Design and fabricate parts of the jack (power screw. 3. Figure 1. high strength. etc) 4. 5. Typical Scissor Jack . 2. A switch button connected to the motor is used to regulate the lifting and lowering process. most of which will be fabricated. Test and analyze force and stress of the jack. Determine the main physical parameters of the design through appropriate calculations and practical considerations with reasonable assumptions. connecting members. A simple machine that will be plugged into the 12V car power (electrical cigarette receptacle) will be integrated into the typical scissor jack (Figure 1) and will become the prime mover (motor).
5. . 3. 4. The automatic car jack is only for normal person. the project will have the following limitations: 1. The automatic car jack is only a prototype and not readily functioning as commercial product. 6. The automatic car jack can only work by using the internal car power (12V). 2. Motorized Screw Jack However. The automatic car jack must be operated on a flat surface. The design is based on current scissor jack in the market. The automatic car jack that will be developed can only withstand below 1000kg of load.Lifting Members Load Platform Power Screw Key Pinion Gear Motor Cable to Cigarette Lighter Receptacle in an Automobile (12V) Button Switch Connecting Members Base Embedded Spring Slider Figure 2.
