Grill with powered rotisserie

Students from the Ferdinand-von-Steinbeis school in Reutlingen, Germany, designed a variety of grills as part of their project work.

The budding engineers in the field of mechanical engineering were looking for a project in which they could apply their knowledge of CAD in practice.
For the students, the grill project started in March 2017. With summer on the way, they all decided it would be a great idea to design a grill. The aim was to build something which had a powered rotisserie and which could also be used without a tray, i.e. over an open fire.

Before construction could begin, the students first had to become familiar with the theoretical groundwork. This included the standard EN 1860-1:2013 ("Barbecues burning solid fuels – Requirements and test methods").

On this basis, the first sketches could be made, which were useful in choosing the right materials.
norelem was happy to help here, providing standard elements to the students.
Alongside locking pins, star grips and sprockets, norelem was able to offer the students from Reutlingen deep groove ball bearings and threaded spindles.

The students were then in a position to create the final CAD drawing so that welding and assembly could then take place in the next stage.
The various grills were finally finished in July, and the results were thoroughly tested altogether in the first trial barbecue.
