Abstract

This article presents the design and construction of a machine that is used to cut and bend braces for reinforced concrete columns. This is a solution to replace the manual work carried out by a person during the manufacturing of these elements.          This project is based on analyses of R.U.L.A (Rapid Upper Limb Assessment) that determines the occupational affections in the worker’s health who produces about 600 braces daily in a traditional way. The result obtained was 7.          This proposal shows an alternative to design and build equipment that will realize the same operations, so that the human effort will be reduced.          This article describes the process of the design and construction of the machine, the result shows the benefit of the machine that will avoid the physical effort of the worker, which is evident applying the R.U.L.A that is from 7 – 3 when we obtained 600 braces in only two hours.
