Design and Fabrication of Drum Handling Equipment
This paper presents the use of drum handling equipment in the industries to reduce worker for drum handling . The study effect of material handling on human is done in this paper. Also study different material handling equipment used in industries.
In many industries raw material and finish product handled in 210Lit. Drum. They handle drum manually. In work place drum transported, lifted, Loaded, tilted etc. manually. Handling heavy load manually takes more time, worker also it is hazards and risky. In small pharmaceutical company around 25 different type of raw material use. It is in liquid form which is taken out from 210lit. Drum by loading on horizontal stand. Company cannot use barrel pump because it will require maintaining 25 barrel pump which is costly. In automobile work shop require around 8 type oil for vehicle which comes in 210lit. Company requires effective material handling equipment for effective material handling. Manual drum handling equipment is use to do various function like transport, tilting, lifting, loading, unloading etc. In small industries or work shop drum barrel is handled manually which takes more time and more worker. Handling drum manually without using any equipment is hazards.
In this, following objectives is to be carried out
1) To minimize worker for Drum transporting, loading, unloading, lifting and tilting process.
2) To study material handling equipment for Drum handling.
3) To study the lifting and loading effect on human.
4) To study the ergonomic of material handling.
5) To Design modified drum tilting mechanism.
6) To fabricate prototype model.
7) Testing and conclusion.
