Abstract

The main objectives of any manufacturing industry is the improvement in productivity, reduction cost of
production and labor, PLC is being used extensively in industries to control the machine and process. The present
project work deals with replacing the delta PLC with Mitsubishi PLC, considering all the disadvantages of the former
PLC, and thus improving efficiency of the machine and process in which it is implemented. In the present condition, a
number of disadvantage like, wiring number not mentioned, operation and electrical connection are in the single panel,
no water flow indication, etc. exist. To reduce these, PLC being replaced with the better one i.e. Mitsubishi Fx3u-64M,
thus loss of components being machined is reduced by about 60% and the loss is revenue is reduced by about 70%. Also
the breakdown time of the machine is reduced by about 10hr per month.
