Description: The purpose of this project is to design a fully functional automated palletizing work cell that will simulate real-world palletizing of two different size bottles in a classroom environment. Successful completion of this project is based on the following components working together in a system: the bottle feeder with a pneumatic actuator, two photoelectric sensors, a conveyor, a programmable logic controller (PLC), and a robot. All the components are integrated to perform a unit task of palletizing. The process begins when a pneumatic actuator pushes a bottle from the tray of the bottle feeder onto the conveyor belt. The conveyor belt then transports the bottle to the inspection station, where two photoelectric sensors are mounted to detect the bottle and determine its size. One of the sensors sends the signal to stop the conveyor while the other sensor prompts the robot to start palletizing.
