The main concept behind our project is replacement of treadmill mechanism for small scale industries which is fully functional, easy to use, highly accessible and easily maintainable. The answer for this is Box Transport Mechanism as it is a construction of links and joints it is easy to construct and to maintain. compared treadmill it is it is cheap and efficient. The results from this project can be used by many small-scale industries and in-house industries where conveyor system is not accessible There has been a serious demand for mechanisms for movement of packages in the industries right from the start. Though the continuous movement is important in the same field of assembly and packing etc. The objective of our paper is to produce a mechanism that delivers this result using mechanical linkages. The advantage of our system over the conveyor system is that the system has a time delay between moving packages and this delay can be used to introduce any alterations in the package or move the package for any other purpose and likewise. While in conveyor system such actions cannot be performed unless programmed module is used to produce intermittent stopping of the belt which basically is costly. The prototype design requires electric motor, shafts, and the frame of which the frame and platform on which the packages are moved is fabricated. All the links are being made of Wood or metal which reduces the weight of the whole system including the head which has a direct contact with the boxes being moved. The system is expected to move as heavy packages as 2 - 3kgs approximately and easy to construct and to maintain.
