The "AE-PLC-SIP" is a quality control workstation commanded by a PLC, which check three characteristics of the input pieces. The workstation checks the color, the type of material and the height of input pieces.
The "AE-PLC-SIP" 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, filters and regulators to assure the appropriate working of the unit.
- The workstation: is composed by real industrial components used by the industrial quality control systems such as reed sensors, capacitive sensors, reflective optical sensors, etc.
The "AE-PLC-SIP" is an independent workstation that can work alone and/or in conjunction with other workstations to make up a complete Flexible Manufacturing system*.
