Abstract – The automation of a brick making machine using programmable logic controller where the manual operation of the brick making machine is automated. The main objective is to reduce man power, cost, production time and to increase the quantity and quality of production. The existing system of brick making process are manual controlling of brick making machine and unloading and the chance of human errors and production time are more. In order to overcome these errors, brick making machine is automated. Automation like Embedded system and VLSI are complex in programming, error detection and rectifying, future expansion of the system Interfacing of new device is quit complex and reliability of the system is less when comparing to programmable logic controller. In programmable logic controller the error detection & rectifying, programming interfacing of new device is simple and hence the machine is automated using PLC.

Key Words – PLC; automation; VLSI, Embedded System
