We need a machine working on gravity feeding for packing of rice.
This machine has to be mainly used in small scale industries for Packing of free flowing products .
Small scale industries who do this manually require min 4 workers to do it
By this the number of workers will be reduced to 2
And also due automatic weighing along with sewing of bags(if required)
we can save around 50% time required for it.
Machine should perform following functions
- Weigh the amount of rice packed in bag.
- Automatically start and stop feeding mechanism for bag filling.
- Should be able to hold the bag
- Should be able to weigh different types of grains and calibrated according to the need.
- Preferred to be portable as one machine should be used for 2 -3 products
- Design should be future proof so various other things can be added for eg. Automatic monitoring and all.
#Project aims at achieving following things
- Reduction in time spent on filling and packing the bags which leads to increase in productivity.
- Reducing labors required for the process by using semi-automatic machine.
Current Task in Progress
-Designing a lever required for various weights of bags like
10kg, 25kg 50kg and 60kg
Teammates & Contributors I’m Looking For
- Anyone having experience in similar field can suggest ideas
- Designer for Designing basic sketches of project.
- Manufacturers of designed parts
Where I Need the Most Help
Machine needs to be designed keeping certain factors in mind like space and budget available. Also machine needs to be designed to operate mostly without aid electricity and avoiding machines like compressors, motors.
Why I’m Passionate About This Project
We required this mechanism for helping small scale industries in our region and help then grow.
Supporting Material & Info
The machine needs to be designed keeping in mind area available for packing
