Automated Pick and Place Mechanism in Industry using Robotic Arm

Vallari S. Ansingkar, Vrushali G. Raut


Many industries in India were found to be using manual methods for material transfer and pick and place of products. This reduces the productivity and causes unnecessary time consumption. This project is for automating the action of pick and place of material. Before an object is dispatched to the market or another company, there is a lot of movement of the object which is under manufacturing. All the hardwiring involved in machines has now been reduced due to PLC (Programmable logic controller). Greatest advantage of PLC is that logic of the machine can be altered without doing many changes on the electrical side. HMI (Human Machine Interface) is used in the system to start the operation or stop it. There are sensors to sense object. The object sensed will be indicated to PLC. Program in PLC will pick the object from the conveyor belt and bring it to predefined location using robotic arm.
