Around the world packaging is done by complex machines and one of these machines is known as a palletizer, the types of which will be discussed and why one approach would be more useful to our desired application. As we saw the need for this type of product hence we decided to make a proof of concept using local equipment and trying to keep the cost down from all the major foreign competitors and to provide the local industry an economical and viable solution the packaging problem that will not only increase production quality and pace but will not impact the financial bottom line of the company. After identifying the problem, we went on to design iteratively and fabricate the structure with as modest technique we could work with so that the overall cost is kept down. Then the selection of motors and amplifiers and other electronics based of on needs and weight lifting requirements as this prototype is supposed to lift 5-6 kg. The end goal is to provide an economical yet reliable and upgradable solution to the packaging problem using automation and to increase the production capabilities and to remove any post- production related bottle necks and to improve the overall margins gained on the product.
