Design and Fabrication of Automatic Dispensing Machine

Authors(5) :-Mohan S G, Pradhyumna D R, Prafullachandra P S, Prajwal Setty, Mr. Rakesh M

The purpose of the project is to design a system that can handle and dispense substances (chemicals, food etc.) without human intervention. The system being developed is in relation to the problems being faced by the labours in handling accurate quantity of substances in many retail shops/manufacturing industries. The conventional method used by the labours is through hand handling the substances, which may be hazardous in case of chemicals. On successful completion of the project, this problem is sure to get solved. The system is mainly divided into 3 layers: (1) User Layer (2) Decision Making Layer (3) Action Layer. User layer consists of touch pad for the human interaction, which takes the input from the users regarding substances and its subsequent weight. Decision making layer consist of micro-controller (Arduino UNO/ MEGA), as soon as the user enters the data, the data is processed by the system. Action layer comprises of Actuator (Motor, dispensing controller). After the authentication the Automatic Dispensing Machine dispenses the required amount on to a container. The system is designed using SOLIDWORKS software package. Later, Fabrication can also be done in detail as per required dimensions.
