Due to the environmental aspect as well as increasing prices for raw materials, product separation is a global topic and also the business model of the future. Sorting systems are used to kind things supported varied criteria in order that they will be packed consequently. Manual sorting is a time and effort-intensive process. Automatic sorting systems allow for the fast and efficient sorting of products. To demonstrate the sorting system, we develop a PLC based sorting system project that uses pistons with a color sensing system powered by PLC control to achieve this functionality. The sorting system consists of a conveyor belt to carry products from one end to the collection baskets. It consists of a color sensor to sense the type of product using color sense, the system currently utilizes three pistons with piping and control valves to regulate their operations. Two pistons are used to sort two colours and for an already sorted product, the third piston is used which attach to another conveyor. The system is powered by a PLC to manage the sorting system. Three assortment baskets are used to collect samples sorted by the pistons mounted parallel to everyone. The PLC coordinates with sensors and piston valves so as to achieve the specified functionality and demonstrate the totally automated product sorting system.
