Automation systems have been used in almost all industries of food, automotive, textile, machinery manufacturing, agriculture and etc. In this research paper, we are presenting a process loop which can be used in roto moulding process. That has made the process automatic. Because human interruptions can lead to wastage of material, lower quality and increase chances of accidents. PLC based programming can be useful for making process in a sequence and time base.
