Abstract

Senior Engineering capstone project focused on the development of a system of sensors and high-level logic that will detect product jams and then stop continuous conveyor movement.

***********

#360 creates 3 types of small toilet tissue products: wrapped (which is unaffected by this project), Banded plugged, and banded non-plugged. The conveyor destroys the banded product if there is a downstream stop and the conveyors upstream have not shut off. The belts keep moving, which tears up the tissue.It is desired to have the project team design a system of eyes and logic for the conveyor system to appropriately shut down or slow conveyors when there is a downstream stop. It is desired to have a system of eyes and receivers in multiple positions, which communicate to the conveyor system to slow and/or shut down some stretches of the system as needed to eliminate the destruction of product. It is preferred if the design contains multi-tiered logic which slows the conveyor when a backup is sensed and allows the downstream to catch up.
