GESIPA have recently launched a brand new Rivet tool called the i-Bird Pro.
The new i-Bird is a smart tool that can be connected to a smartphone or tablet using Wi-Fi
or Bluetooth via the GESIPA app.
Gesipa would like a stand to hold the tool and accessories on a desktop, as either a
workstation or a display stand.

Design Brief

To ensure that the tool is ready for a demonstration or for use in the work area, Gesipa
would like the i-Bird Pro stand to have the features below.
• The display stand or workstation must have the GESIPA logo prominent.
• It must be able to hold the tool in a safe and stylish free standing manner.
• There should be adequate space for a spare battery and the charger.
• There should be space for the smart device.


 The competition can be run in school or at home, any time in the Spring Term,
between Christmas and Easter.
 The final submission date to Keighley Association of Engineers is 9.00am on
Monday 29th April 2019 to allow time for judging before our annual dinner and award

 One sheet of research and investigation into innovative and creative designs, similar
products and the products of Gesipa.
 Two sheets of initial ideas and models (hand produced and for CAD/CAM).
 One sheet of development showing progression towards the final design.
 A maximum of two sheets of working drawings/orthographic drawings/parts drawing
