dc.description.abstractThis project was commissioned by Bill Ross, owner of Bay of Plenty Gear Cutters, to design a prototype portable handheld reinforced steel-rod combination bender and cutter for use on construction sites; where access to a power source is limited. This thesis covers the research of current cutters and benders on the market, concept generation, development, materials selection, and detailed design involving the analysis of the components in the device in both first principles and a finite element analysis (FEA) performed on mainly SolidWorks. The proposed new tool will require further development, refinement and optimisation before it can be released for sale.en_NZ
