The objective of our project is to design, develop and monitor "Automatic bottle filling system using PLC". This work provides with a lot of benefits like low power consumption, low operational cost, less maintenance, accuracy and many more. This project is based on Industrial automation and is a vast application used in many industries like milk industries, chemical, food, mineral water and many industrial manufacturers. A prototype has been developed to illustrate the project.
Filling is the task that is carried out by a machine and this process is widely used in many industries. In this project, the filling of the bottle is controlled by using a controller known as PLC which is also the heart of the entire system. For the conveyor system, a dc motor has been selected for better performance and ease of operation. A sensor has been used to detect the position of the bottle. In our project we have used a smaller number of systems hence the overall cost has been reduced to an extent. Ladder logic has been used for the programming of the PLC, which is the most widely used and accepted language for the programming of the PLC. The PLC used in this system Delta DVP14SS211R which makes the system more flexible and easily useable. Ladder logic has been used for programming the PLC, WPLsoft software is used for programming the PLC.
