Syaif Muhami Shidiq, 1st Winner on Challenge Invention Mechanical Engineering 2015
BANDUNG, TEL-U – Scissor Lift known as stair shaped like scissors that used in the world of work to reach high objects. In a construction job or mechanical, Scissor lifts are needed to reach difficult areas to reach vertically. On the Invention competition Mechanical Engineering Design Competition (IMEV) 2015, a student of Industrial Engineering Faculty of Engineering Industries, Telkom University (Tel-U) 2013, Syaif Muhami shidiq perform redesign on the lifts Scissor to make it safer for workers.
“Modify the design to consider safety, healthy, and environment. Working at heights place must be considered the safety of workers, “said Syaif, Tuesday (26/5). His stunning design took 1st place in IMEV.
IMEV attended by students from various cities in Indonesia. On this competition, participants required to be critical and think fast. At every stage of the race was not given much time to complete a 100% design. Besides Syaif, a student of Industrial Engineering in 2012 Lanang Arifianto also represented Tel-U on IMEV competition.
“Most of Participants from other universities are from Department of Mechanical Engineering. Admittedly, their way of thinking is very fast in completing the design innovations. However, not all the participants thought about the design that promotes worker safety factor. Probably, this was a distinctive of my design and considered to achieve 1st position, “said Syaif.
