Weapons service table

Detta är en Master-uppsats från KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

Sammanfattning: One of the weapons used on the Visbykorvett is a machine gun (KSP 88). The machine gun need’s regular maintenance and that is usually done on the floor at shooting platform or the weapon is carried down into the ship to a suitable location. This is both unergonomic and impractical, which is why the Swedish Armed Forces have built a prototype of a weapons service table. This prototype does not meet all the requirements, but it was used extensively and it confirmed that a weapon service table is needed. That is why the Swedish Armed Forces, the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration and the company Mildef have created this opportunity for a master thesis. In this project, two research questions have been formulated that’s going to be answered: How can a table be designed to handle heavy loads while still being portable?  How should a table be designed to be transported by one person? To answer these research questions, several concepts were developed and two of these were worked on for a longer period of time. What became clear towards the end of the project was that there was an optimal design for each research question and the requirement to handle high load was given the highest priority when design was chosen.
