Abstract

The invention of a can crusher machine in this project is to reduce the wasted storage space occupy by the tremendous amount of used aluminium cans in the commercial establishment like restaurant, cafeteria and bar. Basically, can crusher machine is operated in manually which is very inefficiency where it highly required human effort and time in the can crushing process. A can crusher can be defined as “A device used for crushing the aluminium can for easier storage in recycling bins thereby giving extra space by flattening of can”. The main aim of this project is to reduce the initial volume of empty aluminium cans down to 70% in more effective, faster and effortless way as well as low cost that is suitable to be used in small industry. An automation process is implemented in this can crusher machine due to the automation in the modern world is inevitable and highly effective to be used. The automatic can crusher machine is controlled by Programmable Logic Controller(PLC) with the aid of sensors of inductive and capacitve, where it is used to detect whether the object is metal or non-metal. Overall, the system can be control manually through the push start and stop button as well as using the Human Machine Interface (HMI) for displaying the number of can being crush per day. The design of the pneumatic can crusher machine provides a more practical usage in recycling aluminium wastes and meanwhile helps in maintaining eco-friendly environment in this world.
