Abstract

The conversion of a human process to the automation plays an important role on the product as well as the growth of the company. Our project is one of the example for the automation of an industry. The low-cost automation for industrial paint booth is the project that we have done to reduce the labour cost of painting process in the industry. As we all know that the painting process is very harmful to every living being. So, we have planned to convert the industrial paint booth in Rane (Madras) into an automated painting with low cost. In this project, we are using some simple mechanism and PLC control to complete the painting process. The reason for the word low cost is that the overall setup price is very lower than industrial arm robot with 2-axis. There is one pivoted mechanism as used to paint the top and bottom side of the product. The spray gun is fixed at the pivoted plate and the overall control of the servomotor as well as the paint gun is controlled by the PLC timer control. The sensors are engaged for giving input to the PLC and accordance with the given input only the servo motors and the spray gun are working.
