Due to environmental concerns and competition within the industry there is an imminent need by paper manufacturers to asses the paper consumption depending on the quality of the tissue paper. For this purpose, the consumption of tissue paper from a tissue vending machine needs to be monitored and calculated. A Hall Effect Sensor coupled with a Passive Infrared Sensor was used to monitor the flow of paper per Person. MATLAB is used as the programming language to read the signals from the sensors. The consumption obtained would be used to obtain better, less bulky design models. As well deduce an optimum paper dimensions to get reduce the paper consumption. Also, the FEM was done in ABAQUS for better blade design of Hand wiping system.
