Project Summary:

Myself, Sonali Singh, a student at Thakur College of Engineering and Technology, presents an innovative project aimed at automating the angulation and inclination (torque) of orthodontic braces. The "Two Axis Angulation System" employs Arduino, servo motors, and advanced controllers to enhance the precision and efficiency of brace preparation. The project significantly reduces the time required for brace setup, from over an hour to just 3 to 5 minutes, offering a more accurate and automated alternative to manual procedures. The future plan includes upgrading components for even greater accuracy and efficiency.

Components Used:

Arduino Mega 256 Servo Motors Matrix Keypad 4*4 Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Various Connectors and Accessories

Specifications:

Output: 15V, 5Amp Input: 180V to 260V AC, 47 to 63Hz Overload and Overvoltage Protection Short Circuit Protection Operating Temperature: 0 to 45°C Power Conversion Efficiency: 80% Safety Standards: EN60950, GB4943

Drawbacks:

The project's main drawback lies in the performance limitations of the current components, especially the use of servo motors. Upgrading to stepper motors and advanced microcontrollers is recommended for enhanced accuracy.

Future Plans:

The team envisions further improvement by incorporating advanced components such as stepper motors and controllers like MSP430 Launch Pad, Nanode, Pinguino PIC32, STM32 Discovery, and Teensy 2.0. These upgrades aim to elevate the project's accuracy, reliability, and overall performance.

Conclusion:

The Two Axis Angulation System streamlines the manual brace preparation process, reducing the time required and enhancing accuracy. Future plans involve adopting state-of-the-art components for even greater efficiency. The project's success owes much to the guidance of Dr. SC Patil and the support from the Electronics Engineering department.

Acknowledgment:

Sonali Singh expresses gratitude to Dr. SC Patil, project guide, and acknowledges the support of the Electronics Engineering department, non-teaching staff, and friends who contributed to the project's success.
