Designing of Bottle Washing Machine in Virtual Environment Using the New Mechatronics System Design TechnologyAbstract: Primary packaging signifies the evaluation of the fundamental package which isdirectly related to the manufacturing products. On the other hand, secondary packaging is theprocess of combining the primary packages into one container which is used to transport theproducts from one place to another. In a manufacturing circumstance, a secondary package is notavailable for the end users. Rather it is the primary packaged product that will be available forthe ultimate consumers. Filled bottles with drinkable liquid & solutions that requires sanitizedbottles are one of these kinds of products.In most of the primary packaging industries, bottle washing machines are one of the mostcomprehensively used technologies which is used for efficient washing, sanitizing & dying ofbottles before these are ready to be filled with manufacturing liquid & solutions. Currently, thereare some automatic bottle washing machines available in industry. Generally these machines aremanufactured through practical experiences of conventional machine design which maysometimes result in economic injury and time consumption. These problems can be prevented, ifthe machine design is based on the simultaneous mechatronics system design technology.Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of Mechanical & electrical engineering, computerscience & information technology that comprises control system in addition to mathematicalanalysis used to design products incorporates with intelligence. The modern mechatronics systemdesign is based on concurrent approach to design products with more synergy whereas theconventional system is represented with the sequential approach of design. In new mechatronicssystem design technology the first step of designing a machine starts at emulation of a machine.The term emulation of a system refers to the fact that the system will act as similar as a realsystem without using the hardware. It will enable us to test a system without the hardware. Theproducts that are built through this emulation process before building it in real world aregenerally more reliable, more robust, higher quality & customer satisfactory.This new mechatronics design process can easily be beneficial to a company by increasing theefficiency of the machine. Products become more consistent due to smart and self-connectingsensors. These networkable sensors & control system in a composite environment can reduce theinvestment cost and improve the utilization of the machine.System Description: Figure1: Animation of bottle washing frameEmulation of bottle washing machine project will be emulated by the PLC (Programmable LogicController) software such as RSLogix™ 5000, FactoryTalk® View ME (Machine Edition). PLCwill be emulated by RSLogix™ 5000 Emulator. The whole emulation will run in Allen BradleyFactoryTalk® View Machine Edition. Through this research paper we will establish a process bywhich we will be able to design a bottle washing machine in a virtual intuitive environment. Wewill use PLC (Programmable Lo gic Controller) software tools and Human Machine Interface(HMI) animation tool to achieve the desired outcome of the research.To emulate this bottle washing machine, ladder control logic should be developed in RSLogix™5000 to operate the entire process selecting the PLC type as RSLogix™ 5000 Emulator. Thecommunication between this Emulator and FactoryTalk® View Machine Edition is required torun the virtual animation of the desired machine. The configuration of FactoryTalk® view isalso an important step for the communication with the programmable ladder logic. AllenBradley software DMAT (Drive & Motion Accelerator Toolkit) will be used for the electricalcontrol, Schematic design, panel layout design and HMI design. The process of IntegratedArchitecture solution that includes Allen-Bradley servo drives and PowerFlex® AC drives for thereal-time hardware design.This research involves the emulation of a machine that helps us to build the actual machine withaccuracy, higher quality and reliability.
