Brick Rehabilitation

Brick Rehabilitation:

BRICK-REHABILITATIONDlamini V, Govender D, Ramcharan I, Singh D  |  Prof G Bright/Mr C Basson

The project objective was to design and develop a semi-autonomous brick rehabilitation system. The brick rehabilitation system features an integrated cleaning mechanism capable of rehabilitating a brick by either refurbishing and/or reshaping it; if broken, such that the brick can be reused in the construction industry. The final conceptual design employs a three-stage fixed distance blade cutting system that aims to match or decrease the manual cleaning rate of one brick per minute. The system can provide potential entrepreneurs with a device to build a business around as the output brick will provide a low-cost alternative to new bricks.
