A can crusher is a device used for crushing aluminum cans for easier storage in recycling bins. While most recyclers don’t require you to crush cans, if you do recycle a lot, your normal bin may fill up quickly. The crusher gives you extra space by flattening either single or multiple cans. This project is about designing and fabricating the Recycle Bin Tin Can Crusher to help people to crush the tin and aid easier transportation. This project involves the process of designing the crusher considering forces and ergonomic factors for easier handling. After the design was complete, it was transformed to its real product where the design is used for guideline. These projects also require ensuring the human safety. Methods and process involve in this project are joining using bending, welding, drilling, and cutting process. This project is mainly about generating a new concept of tin can crusher that would make easier to bring anywhere and easier to crush the tin.
