ALLGEMEINE BESCHREIBUNG

The Flexible Manufacturing System 3, "AE-PLC-FMS3" is a modular system composed of five workstations: the Feeding Workstation for Pieces "AE-PLC-A", the Mounting Workstation "AE-PLC-M", the Rotary Table Workstation 2 "AE-PLC-MR2", the Storage Workstation "AE-PLC-AL" and the Linear Transport Workstation "AE-PLC-T".

The objective of the "AE-PLC-FMS3" system is to provide a base piece and mount two different pieces inside it, once the piece is complete, the system storage them in a specific position of the depot.

The process of the "AE-PLC-FMS3" is explained in the following lines:

  • First, the feeding system provides the base pieces with the correct dimensions and place them on the linear transport system.
  • Then, the mounting workstation provide another piece, and after verify that is correct, mount them inside the base piece placed on the linear transport system.
  • The rotary table workstation provides another piece to be mounted inside the base piece. The rotary workstation measures the dimensions, the color and the material of the provided pieces to check if they are correct to be mount in the base piece.
  • Finally, the storage workstation takes the base piece through an automatic manipulator and place in the programmed place of the storage.

Each workstation is locally commanded by a PLC device and, in turn, a central PLC coordinates all workstations. The communication network between workstations and PC is based on the Ethernet protocol.

The "AE-PLC-FMS3" system designed by EDIBON allows the users to learn the basic concepts of automation as the operation of an Ethernet network or how to program a PLC and about other areas as pneumatic, electro-pneumatic, vacuum technology, etc.

The optional "AE-AS" software is designed to teach the students how works real automation software. This software allows making 2D and 3D processes simulations, supervising and controlling SCADA systems, programming and communicating PLCs, simulating hydraulic, pneumatic and electronic devices’ operation, etc.
