Problem Statement

The goal of this design project was to create a device that can aid in the assembly of glue joints between concentric tubes. In many medical devices, whether they be laser probes, retractable injectors, or other devices with actuating parts, there are often concentric glue joints. The problem we are trying to solve is controlling where the 2 tubes are relative to one another when they are glued.
