A seedling tray conveying device has been designed for conveying seedling trays for the production line during industrial cultivation of sprouts. The composition, working process and primary structural parameters of this device have been determined and virtually designed with SolidWorks. A kinematics model for the device has been established and analyzed with the Matlab-language-based program, to obtain the displacement, velocity, accelerating curve and variation range of the conveying rack. Kinematic analysis shows that change in kinematic parameters like displacement, velocity and acceleration of the conveying rack can realize conveying of the seedling tray. This device has been reasonably designed. The prototype test shows that the seedling tray conveying device can automatically convey the seedling trays from the transversal conveying chain to the longitudinal conveying chain in the sprout industrial cultivation production line. This device features simple structure, low cost, high efficiency, safe use and easy operation.
