The author had completed a design and fabricate machine for an automated can crushing system. So far, this idea is still very new in the society and it's not selling in the market yet. In the point of education, it is still a new idea in TARCollege. These ideas also have high potential market and commercialize value. The author had also reviewed several types of can crushing machine that currently exist in the market. Besides, the process of can crushing system was also being studied. With all the research and studies, the author finally used WPLSoft to programmed PLC and the design was drawn by using CA TIA software. From draft until fabrication completed of the automated can crusher system, the material uses are a motor, sensors, PLC, WPLSoft, pneumatic cylinders, solenoid valve, manifold and many other smaller parts. Troubleshooting for the prototype was carried out in order to improve and modify to work better. A test was run to check and take down data to analyse the result. Some modification for the prototype has been done such as adjusting the angel of the can holder, more sensors has been added and also optimize the compressor pressure. A calculation was carrying out to get the exact pressure to crush the aluminium can. The sequential to operate the automated can crusher system was reported in the dissertation. Several recommendations for further improvement were discussed for future work.
