Abstract: In today’s world, the assembly rate has accrued staggeringly. Commonly, engineering industries keep producing same models with slight distinction tall, colour, weight and form. And here fault identification plays a major half. In such circumstances industries can’t vacant golem errors. Therefore it’s necessary to develop mechanism for characteristic faults in these product in actual manner. Industrial automation primarily focuses on developing automations having low value, low maintenance, long sturdiness and to create systems user friendly as potential. Finally, here we tend to have developed a system for sorting the light-weight weight objects on the basis of height variation mistreatment proximity sensors that is controlled by Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and the conveyor within the system passes the object in front of sensors and therefore fault identification is completed.
