The "AE-PLC-CRS" is a corking system commanded by a PLC. The workstation detects the bottles that arrives on a conveyor belt to the corking position and closes them with a cap using a pressing cylinder. The "AE-PLC-CRS" also includes different sensors in order to check if the amount of liquid in the bottles is correct.
The "AE-PLC-CRS" workstation has been designed as a modular system to facilitate the understanding of the equipment operation:
- The PLC: is composed of an AE-PLCB that contains a HMI device, analog and digital input/output modules, etc, and the required extra modules to put into operation the workstation successfully.
- The control panel: emergency stop push button switch, start/stop button, reset button, light indicator to show the state of the workstation, etc.
- The workstation: is composed of real components used by the industrial automatic conveyor systems such as: capacitive sensors, limit switch sensors, position sensor, etc.
The "AE-PLC-CRS" workstation can work alone and/or in conjunction with other workstations to make up a complete Flexible Manufacturing system*.
