Automatic Pneumatic Operated Waste Can Crusher Machine

Automatic Pneumatic Operated Waste Can Crusher Machine


The Can Crushing process is a main part of the Wastage Collecting industries. Normally the Can Crushing machine is manually hand operated one for Wastage   Collecting industries. In our project is “Pneumatic Can Crusher”. 
Automation in the modern world is inevitable.  Any automatic machine aimed at the economical use of man, machine, and material worth the most. In our project is Pneumatic Actuator and control Valve unit is used for automation.
The Can Crushing machine works with the help of pneumatic Single acting cylinder. The piston is connected to the moving and Pressing Die Arrangement. It is used to press the wastage cool drinks can. The machine is portable in size, so easy transportable.  
         This describes about the design of various components of can or plastic bottle crusher machine. This machine is widely used in beverage industries or in scrap dealers shop to reduce the volume of the cans/bottles. Hence in this design of various parts are necessary, and design of various parts due to which the design quality of those parts will be improved. There are so many researchers who have done work on design and analysis also, but still there are so many areas of scope regarding this design. Overall, this project involves processes like design, fabrication and assembling of different components etc. After all process has been done, this crusher may help us to understand the fabrication and designing that involved in this project.
In this, some crushing force is needed to crush the cans/bottles to reduce its volume by large extent. The design is so done that the knowledge of designing, mechanism and forces are increased. This project consists of designing and fabrication of an automatic can crusher machine considering various important parameters. In this project, development of a recycle bin can/bottle crusher so the Can might crush as flat and look as symmetrically as possible and inserted the bin. As well as the study of manufacturing was very important in order to carry out this project to ensure that what are needs to do. This project involves the process of designing the different parts of this crusher machine considering forces and ergonomic factor for people to use. This project is mainly about generating a new concept of can/bottle crusher that would make easier to bring anywhere and easier to crush the can or bottle. After the design has completed, it was transformed to its real product where the design is used for guideline.


A crusher is a machine designed to reduce large solid material objects into a smaller volume, or smaller pieces. Crushers may be used to reduce the size, or change the form, of waste materials so they can be more easily disposed of or recycled, or to reduce the size of a solid mix of raw materials (as in rock ore), so that pieces of different composition can be differentiated. 


  1. Pneumatic cylinder
  2. Can
  3. Solenoid valve
  4. metal sensor
  5. Conveyor
  6. Belt
  7. Rollers
  8. Battery
  9. Frame body


The compressed air from the compressor is used as the force medium for this operation. There is pneumatic Single acting cylinder, Control valve and Compressed air used .The arm from the compressor enters to the control Valve. The controlled air from the control valve enters to the Pneumatic Actuator. In one position air enter to the cylinder and pusses the piston, so that the Can Crushing stroke is obtained.

The next Control vale is open then return for cylinder exhaust air from the Pneumatic Single acting cylinder, so cylinder piston is return back. 


  1. This machine is very useful for International Hotels
  2. This machine is used to press the all types of can.
  3. All Hotel Application


  1. While working, the compressed air produces noise therefore a silencer may be used.
  2. High torque can not be obtained 
  3. Load carrying capacity of this unit is not very high.(


  1. The pneumatic is more efficient in the technical field 
  2. Quick response is achieved 
  3. Simple in construction 
  4. Easy to maintain and repair 
  5. Cost of the unit is less when compared to other machine
  6. No fire hazard problem due to over loading
  7. Comparatively the operation cost is less
