The aim of this project is to design and fabricate an automated feeding system for forming die to feed a flat aluminium sheet into the sheet metal stamping die. This project is separated into three parts; the parts are design part, fabrication part and the programming part. The whole project focuses on the automated feeding system. Without this feeding system, the stamping die would have to big enough in order to produce the whole product. This type of stamping die will cost a lot. By reducing the cost of the stamping die, an automated feeding system is using. The stamping die is then reduces to a smaller die and punch six time for each aluminium sheet. This punching is changing a single step punching to a six step punching. Based on each time of punching, it required a feeding system to feed the aluminium sheet in such a way that produces an accuracy of feeding. The feeding system is a system that feeding the aluminium sheet into the stamping die and will stop accuracy for each time of the punching. In the design part, The SolidWorks software is used to generate the 3D design. For the fabrication part, the whole prototype has to fabricate and assembly out and used for the feeding systems. For the programming part, the whole automated system is controlled by Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). The ladder diagram is the PLC program used to program the whole movement of the automated feeding system.
