COCKTAIL VENDING MACHINE

01. INTRODUCTION

Boozimba is a tech startup that builds automated cocktail vending machines or robotic bartenders for pubs. I was hired to design their next generation product.

02. DESIGN OVERVIEW

STAINLESS STEEL + GLASS

CONTAINER ASSEMBLY

3 WAY VALE

COMPUTATIONAL UNIT

SCREEN

ALUMINIUM FRAME

PERISTALTIC

PUMP

MIXING

CHAMBER

STOP VALVE

FLOW

SENSOR

03. CONCEPTUALISATION

The next generation cocktail vending machine is aesthetically more pleasing yet compact, with internal working mechanism modified to be capable of making 3 different cocktails simultaneously instead of just one. The new design is achieved within the budget and manufacturing reach of Boozimba, with 3 times increased productivity.

04. Mechanism modification

To modify the existing mechanism for achieving the desired features, new parts were developed while old parts were rearranged to compliment the new compact design.

3 WAY VALVE

A new 3D printing compatible part design to split the flow 3 way

MIXING CHAMBER

A new 3D printing compatible mixing blade had to be carefully designed to achieve horizontal mixing instead of vertical mixing with same level of precision saving 30% space inside the frame. The new trapezoidal container design allowed the flow of the liquid to continue, avoiding any use of pump at the output.

WEDGE

A wedge was introduced to eliminate the space consumed and complexity created by the numerous pipes to transfer different liquids to the mixing chamber

05. SIMULATIONS

Static stress simulations were conducted on the the frame and container assembly design to analyse their strength and structural integrity under the load of liquids and rest of the components.
