Abstract: Shoe toe bonnets/caps are the shielding equipment worn in the production company to care for workers’ feet from heat. Steel is generally used for safety heavy toe shoe caps that have high thermal conductivity but now the usage of polymer material is growing because of the low pressure & less thermal conductivity. This study centers on the design & thermal enquiry of a safety shoe toe bonnet/cap by employing nylon 66 & carbon fiber (CF) in various weight ratios. Safety toe cap design is finished in Siemens NX Uni-graphics subsequently Finite Element Analysis (FEA) employing ANSYS software. ISO 20345: 2011 benchmark is followed for thermal analysis and then compared with steel shoe toe caps. Safety toe cap design is done in Siemens NX Uni-graphics followed by Finite Element Analysis (FEA) using ANSYS software. Comparison with steel shoe toe caps.
