Can Crusher. designs for home use discussion

Can is a commonly used container perhaps because it is light, cheap and very convenient. The need for recycling and reusing used cans has increasingly become very important in the current days. Heyworth (2007), argued that one billion steel cans and 105 billion aluminum cans were used by the US population in the year 2000. This implies that the daily usage of cans in US is very high hence making it necessary to recycle and reuse them either collectively or individually. Every household in US should first crush the cans after they have used them to create more room in the dustbin. Crushing the cans at home also plays an important role in the recycling process since it is the first stage of the recycling factory. This report is going to include a design of an individual can crusher for home use which can also sort out steel cans from other cans made of different materials such as aluminum.


Generally, the aim of this report is to lay out a design of can crusher that is convenient, cheap and efficient. Furthermore, this report aims at issuing data regarding calculation of physical test and marketing.

Product Design Specification


Crush Box: This is the main body of the whole can crusher. Crush box can be divided into three parts namely two side, barrier and the bottom. Two-side hold cans before they are crushed as well as providing fulcrum for lever and forms the base of the crush box.  The second part is barrier that attaches the two-side with the crush box and further joins the can crusher and the wall by using nails and screws. Barrier also acts as a board that cans are crushed against. The final part of crush box is the bottom which is formed by the two-side and has a mezzanine to place a movable board that is flexible enough to change its opening size to suit different sizes of cans.

Handle: The handle has a strong, light, metallic lever part whose end is Y shaped. Its endpoint which is the fulcrum is attached with the crush box while the other endpoint is the lever which is very short.

Chrome plated basket:  This basket looks like a supermarket’s trolley and do not need to be very strong and is used in storing cans instead of keeping the cans indoors.

Piston: This is an additional part attached to the handle’s load end and can be used to change the direction of force. The other side of the piston is attached to crush board and is made of steel.

Collecting Box: This is a small one side open box that is put under the crush box and  has an electric magnet that can be switched on or off. The magnet in the inbox can influences the dropping direction of the crushed can from the crush box so that the collecting box can collect steel cans. However, the rest of the cans such as aluminum drop without influence.

Before starting the crush can, nails and screws should be used to attach can crusher to the wall until it is stable. While starting off the can crusher, the switch on the electric magnet should be first switched on Secondly, cans are then put into the chrome plated basket one by one. Thirdly, the handle should be pulled to crush the cans. If necessary, you can use the move board to change the size of the hole. After crushing, the crushed cans are collected in the collecting box.
