Paper Title:Design and Optimisation of Conveyor Belt System in Zuari Agro Chemical Industry

Abstract

Conveyor belt systems have wide application in industrial and domestic fields. In industry, material in various forms are transported on these belts. This eliminates the problem of manual transportation of goods which would lead to a large volume of labour and increased time consumption. Currently the conveyor belt system at ZACL uses a conventional design of the chute which leads to various problems such as overheating of the chute surface, alteration of material composition in the bag, choking of the chute, removal of print on the bags etc. Our research work is designed to overcome all the above mentioned issues pertaining to the current means of operation at ZACL and serve as a platform for further development.
