The design of automatic material sorting system is a complex process and a sophisticated problem. The need of the system has to satisfy the industry requisition. Theprocess is designed and implemented as automated sorting of objects using belt conveyors. This concept of conveyor belt has better technology that would reduce human effort to sort the materials of non-ferrous metals having different shapes, sizes and separate the varieties and sequentially moves them towards the confined basket by the modulation of the PLC adopting a proximity sensor to detect the range of the objects. In this work, the sorting time of selected materials such as plastic, steel and wood together sorted to their appropriate position to record the average sorting time. As a consecutive attempt to develop the manufacturing sector in sorting of materials and to generate the listed materials with respect to the setup of sorting mechanism.
