A number of employees at OE Enterprises have special needs that require assistive technology for them to complete certain job functions. The goal of our project, Sticky Solution, was to create a device that enables employees with disabilities at OE Enterprises, Inc. to separate and linearly apply an accurate, wrinkle-free piece of sealing tape to an insulation foam. The device consists of multiple components: frame, pressure applicator, a wooden trough, backing and tape spools with automatic spooling, and a cutting mechanism; all of which help to apply wrinkle-free tape onto various foam dimensions ranging from 3 3/8’’ to 5 5/8’’(total width). Quantitative analysis was performed to assess the feasibility and practicality of device’s “slip” mechanism. Finally, a client result survey portrays a positive reaction to device functionality.
