This project (hopefully the first of many), will be based on making an alternative designed 'check weigher' for my very small factory. I need to take a minimum of 50 bottles per day off of my conveyor belt, weight them on a load cell, then have that weight automatically recorded and alert me if it is out of tolerance. The bottle must then be put back on to the conveyor belt.
For the initial prototype I would need a simple Bill Of Materials to be created using [url removed, login to view], and assistance with the PLC programme. I will be using a Siemens Logo 8 most likely, but Arduino or other alternative systems would be OK too. We are looking to strike the best compromise between price and functionality.
I would ask you to look at my initial ideas, make them better where possible, and then help me to design the hardware set up that is needed to operate it. If you think that there is a better way of doing what I'm aiming for then we can start from scratch!
It is quite simple stuff (in my opinion). My initial (untested) thoughts were that I could set up a couple of pneumatic pistons to act as gates on the conveyor, (running 1,000 to 2,000 bottles per hour) then push a bottle on to a load cell adjacent to the conveyor (while releasing the gates to allow the other bottles down the line), have the load cell record the weight and alert me if it is outside of tolerances, then push it back on to the conveyor. As we would only be needing to weigh 50 bottles per day the requirements of the hardware should be quite low.
Some parts will undoubtedly have to be hand fabricated here in-house.
Alternative ideas are most welcome.
