General Description

The "AE-PLC-DS" is a feeder workstation commanded by a PLC, which provides pieces made in different color and materials to the system.

The "AE-PLC-DS" keeps the pieces in a vertical storage, the workstation take the pieces one by one and place them at an exit platform through a rotary actuator with a suction cup.

The "AE-PLC-DS" workstation is designed as a modular system to facilitate the understanding of the unit. The main components are:

The PLC: is composed by the CPU PLC unit and all the extra modules needed to perform a correct working of the workstation.

  • The control panel: with start/stop button, emergency pushbutton, reset button, light indicators to show current state of the process, etc.
  • The pneumatic circuit: contains the required solenoid valves, vacuum components, filters and regulators to assure the appropriate working of the unit.
  • The workstation: is composed by real industrial components used by the industrial feeder systems such as reed sensors, presence sensors, rotary actuators, etc.

The "AE-PLC-DS" is an independent workstation that can work alone and/or in conjunction with other workstations to make up a complete Flexible Manufacturing system*.

*The Flexible manufacturing systems product list is available at "Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS)" area of the general catalogue.
