Authors(4) :-Prasanna, Sharanabasappa, Vishwanath B R , Kishore

In large scale production industries, product manufacturing is carried out at different work stations and semi-processed products need to be transferred from one work station to another. We normally observe in many production units that semi-processed products are transferred from one work station to another using various mechanisms. Roller mechanisms and Bucket conveyors fulfil the need but consumes large amount of energy and requires more space. So there is necessity of a mechanism which fulfils this need effectively and more economically. In this present work cam operated conveyor which is suitable for holding spherical components is designed and fabricated. Conveyor consists of cam mechanism with a lift of 50mm the components are transferred to each work stations with help of cam mechanism. It is observed that this mechanism is suitable for transferring spherical components from one workstation to another without any slippage of components.
