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.
