In the industry, for movement of material from point to point, material handling equipment is necessary. Material handling equipment transports, transfers, moves the material to the desired destination. Roller conveyor is the material handling equipment used to transfer the material over a fixed path. Components of powered roller conveyors are shaft/Axle, rollers, frame, chain, selection of bearing etc. It designed on the basis of load carring capacity, distance to be moved, velocity etc. In this project the present powered roller conveyor, the rollers deflect to the design loading. The excessive deflection and its corresponding reactions are transmitted to the bearings. This work is undertaken to do the analysis and optimization of powered roller conveyor using FEA. In this project stress analysis of existing system is carried out analytically and by using FEA. The geometrical modifications suggested to avoid its deflection. In the present work, an attempt is made also of the reduction in weight of existing roller conveyor by optimizing the critical parts of (e.g. inner & outer diameter of roller, thickness of roller) conveyor without affecting functional performance. Optimization gives optimum design for same loading condition with large weight reduction.
