Reverse engineering is a process by which one understands the complete mechanism of a system by dismantling the system down into its components. The goal of reverse engineering was not to alter the system in any way but to understand the mechanism of the machine in order try and improve it.
A stapler is a device, whose mechanism is to bind sheets of paper or similar material in place; by way of thin metal staples. Staplers are widely used in offices, schools , businesses but not exclusive to these places alone. Stapler is one of the most widely used machines.
The stapler was first made in the 15th century, during the reign of King Louis, the XV. Each stapler had the royal seal embossed on it.In 1977, Henry R. Heyl came up with the design of the modern stapler, which could both insert and clinch a stapler pin in one step. The word “stpler” was first conined in 1901, when the American Munsey’s Magazine used it to describe the machine. Soon after, many people came with different designs and forms of staplers.
In modern times, the stapler has significantly affected the population in its general progress. It’s a simple concept of using a thin metal pin to bind objects together. Some of these applications were common day to day activities whereas; some others were life saving such as in the medical field.
Some of the most common applications of staplers were the following: pinning papers, skin staplers where they are used to surgically staple open skin, carpet tacking, electrical wire and insulation installation as well as the manufacture of furniture.
This machine was chosen to be reverse engineered because it was one of the few machines that was used most often by the general public, and at the same time, was easily accessible too. The team could also find legitimate information about it from various online resources as well as help from some of students in mechanical engineering, that were senior to us. The stapler has a variety of
