Abstract


In industries, it is very necessary to move the components from one area to the other in a regular basis. So, it is necessary to minimize the workers involved in it. So, here we have designed a conveyor which can be used in industries. It is capable of sending a material from one to place to other by many means. So, it is necessary to found a way to transmit the materials from one place to another within the industry. So, here we have made a conveyor model which is used for the material transformation from one end to another. Here we have designed a conveyor model with a base plate, four pillars for the stand. There will be bearing blocks provided for the rollers to be rolled. A fabric type conveyor belt is mounted on the two rollers, such that it will roll on the rollers. A motor is attached to the one end of the roller to make the roller to run as the conveyor. A pillar is provided to mound the motor for running the conveyor.

The main objective of this study is to explore the analysis of a roller. This has entailed performing a detailed static analysis. The study deals with static analysis.

A proper Finite Element Model is developed using Cad software Pro/E Wildfire 4.0. In this project we are doing the material optimization of roller. This project we are designed the 3D model of the axle by using pro-e software and the analysis taken by different materials of the roller and the analysis taken by the ansys software. This project we are analysing the rotational velocity and moment acting on the roller by the two materials. Presently the bearing are made by the material of stainless steel, this project we are testing the same load under another material.
