Advanced automated packaging systems have been developed for most food products in the market. However, most of these systems are designed and made abroad, making the procurement and use of these machines prohibitive for many local businesses. The filling of coconut cooking oil into 5-gallon/17-kg cans is one such process that has not been automated locally.
The group decided to design and construct an automated packaging system for a local manufacturer. The group had to do this at a low cost compared to imported machines, as well as meet targets for production rate with little or no wastage of product. The system employs a conveyor system coupled to a volumetric cup system to measure out the required amount of oil, after which the cans are sealed one at a time at a sealing station adapted from a drill press.
