Abstract

In today’s industries, the material handling system is unitary of the significant system. The primary application of material handling equipment for storage and shipping of the products. Goradia Special Steels Ltd. Khopoli, Raigad MH has encountered accidents while charging the scrap. Hence there is a need to Implement a system which will reduce the involvement of manpower. Robotic vehicles could also be the solution but the need is to Design a cost-effective system. Basically, the function of the material handling section is to choose the most appropriate material handling equipment which is safe and can fulfill material handling requirements. Design of Automated charging trolley is of great interest for efficient and safe sustainability. An Automated Charging trolley will be utilized in the foundry for charging the scrap inside an already installed Induction Furnace. Rail-Guides having inclination will be constructed to travel the charging trolley up to the Induction furnace. Trolley model is designed with various design parameters for the steel industries and the CAD Design is modelled using Solidworks- software. Results from FEA Analysis suggested that the proposed system is able to transport the scrap with better efficiency than the current method of charging the scrap. Foundry has a scrap area and the trolley has to travel from there to the induction furnace. For Start/Stop operation we have used Limit switches, PLC, Remote control. The Charging trolley will be mounted with dead weight, a gearbox, Two Hydraulic cylinders and a motor. Materials of construction used were of common heavy-duty engineering practice.
