Mechatronics

Automation » Mechatronics

Mechatronics is a branch of engineering that focuses on designing, manufacturing and maintaining products that have both mechanical and electronic components and CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing) is a method of manufacturing in which the entire production process is controlled by computer.

The proposal of De Lorenzo for this CIM product is to give the students the possibility for transversal applications in many didactic areas such as Automation, Pneumatics, Electronics, Mechatronics and Process Control. Industrial units are used and can be composed to reproduce either a single basic application or a complete manufacturing system. It can be interfaced to a PLC or to Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition software (SCADA). It is especially designed for engineering graduates.

This trainer simulates the operation of an industrial robot, such as: overall rotation, arm rotation, forearm rotation, wrist rotation, gripper rotation, gripper opening/ closing.   It integrates different technologies, such as belt drive transmission technology, stepper motor driving, position detection, PLC and microprocessor technology. The trainer can be controlled by MCU and PLC.

Products Details

CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) is a manufacturing method, in which the entire production process is controlled by computer. This manufacturing method includes transversal applications in several didactic areas such as automation, pneumatics, electronics, mechatronics and process control.

De Lorenzo has developed station-based training systems, which allow the student to view a specific manufacturing process of an industrial production line. The trainer is a closed- loop control system based on PLC that exchanges information collected from sensors.

The version DL CIM-A integrates Belt conveyer, Linear Transfer, and Pick and Place units.

DL CIM-C

CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) is a manufacturing method, in which the entire production process is automated and controlled by computer to reduce the errors and increase its efficiency.

The DL CIM-PMC is station-based modular training system, that simulates an automated factory.

Each manufacturing cell is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that allows the automation of the processes and the operation of the industrial production line.

It is a closed- loop control based on PLC that exchanges information collected from sensors and covers CIM system functional areas like design, analysis, planning, purchasing, cost accounting, inventory control, or more applied functions: materials handling and management, direct control, and monitoring of all the operations.

The system is composed of 3 main sections that can be used stand-alone or combined in a full production line:
DL CIM-PMC01: Material detection and transport station.
DL CIM-PMC02: Processing station with pneumatic press.
DL CIM-PMC03: Storage station with vertical warehouse.

DL CIM-PMC

CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) is a manufacturing method, in which the entire production process is automated and controlled by computer to reduce the errors and increase its efficiency.

The DL CIM-PMC01 reproduces a scaled-down material detection and transport station.
The manufacturing cell is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that allows the automation of the processes and the operation of the industrial production line.
It is a closed- loop control based on PLC that exchanges information collected from sensors and covers CIM system functional areas like design, analysis, planning, purchasing, cost accounting, inventory control, or more applied functions: materials handling and management, direct control, and monitoring of all the operations.

The automated factory simulates the assembly of cubes composed of two parts, a metal base and a plastic lid (black and white), joined together with plugs.
The DL CIM-PMC01 is the first station in the chain. It is composed of 2 vertical feed bins that contain the raw material (lower and upper parts of the cube). When a part is discharged on the belt, different sensors will detect its material, colour, and drilled hole before travelling to the next station to be processed or being discarded.

DL CIM-PMC01

CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) is a manufacturing method, in which the entire production process is automated and controlled by computer to reduce the errors and increase its efficiency. The DL CIM-PMC02 reproduces a scaled-down processing station with pneumatic press.

The manufacturing cell is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that allows the automation of the processes and the operation of the industrial production line. It is a closed- loop control based on PLC that exchanges information collected from sensors and covers CIM system functional areas like design, analysis, planning, purchasing, cost accounting, inventory control, or more applied functions: materials handling and management, direct control, and monitoring of all the operations.

The automated factory simulates the assembly of cubes composed of two parts, a metal base and a plastic lid (black and white), joined together with plugs. The DL CIM-PMC02 received the inspected material and relative information from the DL CIM-PMC01. The metal base, after having the pins inserted, is placed in the press where it is assembled with a plastic lid. The assembled cube is placed back on the belt and transferred to the next station for storage.

DL CIM-PMC02

CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) is a manufacturing method, in which the entire production process is automated and controlled by computer to reduce the errors and increase its efficiency. The DL CIM-PMC03 reproduces a scaled-down vertical warehouse storage station. The manufacturing cell is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that allows the automation of the processes and the operation of the industrial production line. It is a closed- loop control based on PLC that exchanges information collected from sensors and covers CIM system functional areas like design, analysis, planning, purchasing, cost accounting, inventory control, or more applied functions: materials handling and management, direct control, and monitoring of all the operations.

The automated factory simulates the assembly of cubes composed of two parts, a metal base and a plastic lid (black and white), joined together with plugs. The DL CIM-PMC03 received the inspected material and relative information from the DL CIM-PMC02. The assembled cube is placed in an empty slot of the warehouse based on its colour and the position predefined by the used. At the end of the process, the cubes can be manually extracted from the warehouse by opening the doors.
