To design an automated, computer controlled micro-scale spaghetti press.


This machine is capable of extruding 50g or less of spaghetti for evaluation purposes. Included in the mechanical design specifications are:

  • A mechanical screw drive that generates a maximum force of 6000 pounds.
  • A 1.5 HP direct current constant torque motor interfaced with controlling software.
  • Sensors that monitor extrusion pressure and temperature. Pressure and speed are controlled by the operator via a computer.
