How to Loop through mulitple field data no model

I am creating a form for users to add part information.
I want to include 5 text fields to gather part numbers.

The user then submits the forms.

Question: Is there a ruby way to loop through the form fields info and
extract it on each loop?

Thank you for your time in advance.

To Clarify,

The 5 text fields are for part numbers. The user can enter up to 5 part
numbers. Then click submit.

If the inputs are all names parts[] then params[:parts] will be an
array containing the 5 entries.

I tried to user the following for the inputs
<%=text_field_tag item[] %>

But I get teh following error

well yes, there is no local variable called item. You need to pass
text_field_tag the name you want ie ‘item[]’
