The automatic sorting system has been reported to be complex and a global problem. This is because of the inability of sorting machines to incorporate flexibility in their design concept. This research therefore designed and developed an automated sorting metal object of a conveyor belt. The developed automated sorting machine is able to incorporate flexibility and separate species of metal objects and at the same time move objects automatically to the basket as defined by the regulation of the Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) with an inductive proximity sensor to detect a value range of objects. The result obtained shows that steel/metal is sorted into correct position with time of 10s. The proposed developed model of this research that is implemented with Siemens s7-1200 PLC and TIA portal v13.
