Comfort coupled with safety and simplicity is what man strives for. Our project has been to bring about both .The culmination of our effort has resulted in development of a new “Design & Fabrication of Multipurpose Material Handling Machine”. The project present a basic as well as very professional treatment of the subject in a very comprehensive, based on learning effort and understanding capability of today as per their levels. The device is simple and comfortable. Basic calculation, drawing, designing is included in the project The salient features of our machine can be listed as the mechanism used is very simple, easy for operation; no skill is required to operate the machine. Hydraulic cylinders are used at high pressures and produce large forces and precise movement. For this reason they are constructed of strong materials such as steel and designed to withstand large forces. Because gas is an expansive substance, it is dangerous to use pneumatic cylinders at high pressures so they are limited to about 10 bar pressure. Consequently they are constructed from lighter materials such as aluminum and brass. Because gas is a compressible substance, the motion of a pneumatic cylinder is hard to control precisely.
