Abstract
In this thesis, a new packaging solution has been developed and designed for gear hobs to Volvo Group Truck Operation Powertrain´s transmission plant in Köping. There was a need for a new packaging solution since the existing packaging have a number of problems and deficiencies and begins to be obsolete.

The product development began by familiarizing with the current packaging and how it was handled in the production. Thereafter, customer needs were determined through interviews and observations from operators in the factory who are in contact with the packaging. A number of new product concepts were generated for a new packaging solution and from this, the best concepts for further development were chosen. Three concepts were developed... (More)
In this thesis, a new packaging solution has been developed and designed for gear hobs to Volvo Group Truck Operation Powertrain´s transmission plant in Köping. There was a need for a new packaging solution since the existing packaging have a number of problems and deficiencies and begins to be obsolete.

The product development began by familiarizing with the current packaging and how it was handled in the production. Thereafter, customer needs were determined through interviews and observations from operators in the factory who are in contact with the packaging. A number of new product concepts were generated for a new packaging solution and from this, the best concepts for further development were chosen. Three concepts were developed further and from this, one concept was chosen to proceed with and develop in detail for a final suggestion for a new packaging solution. A functional, simpler prototype was built in plywood and tested in production and feedback from this was used to further develop the final concept. A 30% scale model was 3D printed of the final concept of a new packaging solution.

The final concept of a new packaging solution solves most of the previous deficiencies and problems. Documentations are made for ordering, manufacturing and implementation of the new packaging solution in the production. The final concept consists of a lower part and a top cover and is developed in three different sizes for different lengths of gear hobs. Complete technical drawings were created for the three different sizes as well as manufacturing and assembly instructions. (Less)

I det här examensarbetet har en ny förpackningslösning utvecklats och konstruerats för snäckfräsar till Volvo Group Truck Operation Powertrains transmissionsfabrik i Köping. Det fanns ett behov av en ny förpackningslösning då den existerande förpackningen har flertalet problem och brister och börjar bli föråldrad.

Produktutvecklingen började med att bekanta sig med den nuvarande förpackningen och hur den hanteras i produktionen. Därefter så fastställdes kundbehov genom intervjuer och observationer ifrån personal i fabriken som är i kontakt med förpackningen. Ett antal nya produktkoncept genererades till en ny förpackningslösning och ifrån detta valdes de bästa koncepten för vidare utveckling. Tre koncept utvecklades vidare och ifrån... (More)
I det här examensarbetet har en ny förpackningslösning utvecklats och konstruerats för snäckfräsar till Volvo Group Truck Operation Powertrains transmissionsfabrik i Köping. Det fanns ett behov av en ny förpackningslösning då den existerande förpackningen har flertalet problem och brister och börjar bli föråldrad.

Produktutvecklingen började med att bekanta sig med den nuvarande förpackningen och hur den hanteras i produktionen. Därefter så fastställdes kundbehov genom intervjuer och observationer ifrån personal i fabriken som är i kontakt med förpackningen. Ett antal nya produktkoncept genererades till en ny förpackningslösning och ifrån detta valdes de bästa koncepten för vidare utveckling. Tre koncept utvecklades vidare och ifrån detta valdes ett koncept för att gå vidare med och detaljutveckla till ett slutgiltigt förslag till en ny förpackningslösning. En funktionell, enklare prototyp byggdes i plywood och testades i produktion och feedback ifrån detta användes för att vidareutveckla ett slutkoncept. En modell i 30% skala 3D-printades av det slutgiltiga nya konceptet på en förpackningslösning.

Det slutgiltiga konceptet på en ny förpackningslösning löser flertalet av tidigare brister och problem och underlag är framtaget för att beställa, tillverka och implementera den nya förpackningslösningen i produktion. Slutkonceptet består av en underdel samt ett lock och finns utvecklad i tre olika storlekar för olika längder på snäckfräsar. Fullständiga tekniska ritningar skapades för de tre olika storlekarna samt tillverknings- och monteringsinstruktioner. (Less)
