Jukebox Restoration Modernize

Abstract

Using Six Sigma guidelines under the sponsorship of The University of Indianapolis in cooperation with the client, Brugh Industrial Engineering, this project is to modernize the functionality and interface of a Rockola Model 1428 Jukebox while maintaining its vintage appeal. The process of modernization includes meeting today's industrial safety standards, incorporating ethernet protocol, and utilizing a programmable logic controller, PLC. The jukebox is a showcase of current automation technology. Lighting has been upgraded from fluorescent and incandescent bulbs to addressable nano pixel LEDs. The amplifier, coin system, and record selection system were revitalized to OEM operation standards. All switches within those systems however have been upgraded to micro switch technology. Phase 1 determined that the jukebox will require the audio amplifier, coin system, and the entire control system to be rebuilt, as well as modifying the turntable to accept records that play at a speed of 45 rpm and 78 rpm. All internal electrical modifications will result in a decreased current consumption while meeting UL 508A and NFPA 70 standards. The second phase of the DesignSpine was to find the most realistic design alternatives and solutions within the given budget. The client budget for the project is $12,000. After pricing out the most practical and client approved solutions the product’s current state falls $3765.62 under budget. During the third phase of the DesignSpine the team assembled the jukebox and tested the system in order to drive efficiency and useability while also eliminating unforeseen design flaws.
