The advanced modular CIM can be used to demonstrate the operation of industrial robotic arms. With the integration between the robotic arm and the sensors on the production lines the robotic arm can perform tasks and execute repeated operations autonomously. Our robots can perform the process of loading which involves transferring the workpieces from the loading station to the different production processes stages, then the product goes through several process such as laser marking and drilling for material processing after that the robot return the workpiece to the storage station.

  • Advanced modular CIM is designed to represent a variety of technology fundamentals that are highly used in many Industrial processes such as, pneumatics, robotics, sensors, and PLC controller.
  • The system is based on the programmable logic controller (PLC) that is used to control a wide variety of systems to support the automation requirements. It monitors inputs and changes outputs as controlled in the system program.
  • A number of (5) experimental Stations are provided to allow trainees to enhance their skills on the operation and testing of different types of manufacturing production processes similar to those found in real industrial applications.
  • The system stations provide inclusive and flexible systems to handle, and include all the required components of each system so trainees have absolute freedom to use any one based on the type of the experiments to be carried out.
  • Industrial stations provided in the training system are:
    • Loading station (MR110.01).
    • Laser marking station (MR110.02).
    • Electrical drilling station (MR110.03).
    • Robot arm station (MR110.04).
    • Storage station (MR110.05).
  • Each station is designed with three main parts, technology station, control unit (panel), and underframe. All of them are provided with software to adjust the settings of the PLC or demonstrate the process carried out.
  • The horizontal part of each system station includes the technology station which is the process area that demonstrates a real-life manufacturing production process system.
  • The control panel accommodates PLC control panel and all components needed to power and control the system experiments. It incorporates power sources, switches, and indication LEDs.
  • Additionally, the control panel is equipped with ON/OFF main power switch as well as, emergency switch, which guarantee the required protection to produce a safe working environment.
  • Loading station demonstrates the distribution system that is responsible of the sequential flow of the products which are designed and linked to facilitate and monitor the movement.
  • This station demonstrates the distribution process begins with the stacking magazine of the station, where the work pieces are stored in the magazine tube.
  • Work pieces of different sizes are provided so trainees can examine how the system stores and feeds various types of pieces to the overall system.
  • This station composes of a wide variety of contact-less sensors and actuators such as proximity light barrier sensor, proximity capacitive sensor, pneumatic cylinders and reed switch.
  • Material characteristics of the work piece are determined using an optical and inductive sensor.
  • In the loading station double-acting cylinder is used to push the work pieces out of the magazine tube one at a time, the end positions of the pneumatic cylinder are fixed by contactless sensors.
  • Laser marking station demonstrates the laser marking system that is used for laser marking plastic and metallic materials in printing operations.
  • An electrical high-power laser is used for marking and a 2-axis mechanism is being used for movements.
  • Drilling station demonstrates the electrical drilling system that is used for drilling operations on plastic and metallic materials in industry.
  • An electrical high- speed electrical drilling head is used for drilling the workpiece and a 1-axis mechanism is being used for movements.
  • Robot arm station provides one of the most popular robot types in the industrial space which is the 6-axis robot.
  • The robot station is equipped with a 6-axis articulated arm by robot controller, safety housing, and pneumatic multifunction gripper.
  • The 6-axis allow a robot to move in the x, y, and z planes, as well as position itself using roll, pitch, and yaw movements. This functionality is suitable for complex movements that simulate a human arm.
  • The workpieces are transferred by the robot from a running process to another position.
  • Storage station is provided to teach trainees how the storage system can differentiate amongst workpieces based on their characteristics and store a variety of workpieces over many levels and rows. It creates a space-saving storage for products and this is importantly required in any industry system.
  • Trainees can understand the function and application used for storing workpieces of different forms and structures.
  • A contact-less sensor is being used to determine if the storage unit is full or not.
  • All stations are supplied with metal and non-metal test parts (workpieces) made out of different widths and colors to simulate the products in the industrial plants and enable performing the most common processes using a PLC system.
  • The stations in this training system are delivered completely assembled, wired and tested.
  • Every station can be operated separately or linked to another station or more.
  • The system provides different ways for connecting the stations.
  • An adapter plate is supplied to allow two stations without a common hole pattern to be attached together.
