The industrial mechatronics trainer ( MRM-008 )represents a complete system that is designed to demonstrate sorting methods of products by using PLC (programmable logic controller) which is used in real-life industrial plants the system consists of four processes (Loading – Transporting – Measuring – Sorting) each process exists in isolated station. But They connected together using linked plates.

                                     
  • The training system consists of four stations to perform the processes of: loading, transporting, measuring, sorting.
  • Each station has PLC S7-1200, emergency button, main on/off, and process on/off.
  • The processes performed do simulate the processes that happen in real life industrial plants.
  • The first process is loading process, the hopper moves the work pieces from a magazine and places it in a deposit location.
  • The second process is transporting process, A suction cup is attached to an arm in order to transport the parts from the hopper to the start of the measuring station carriage. The arm moves 180 degrees
  • The third process is measuring process, in which an analog sensor determines the height the of work pieces giving signals to the PLC to perform the required measuring process.
  • The last process is sorting process, in which each work piece is sorted and delivered to its convenient storage box and the rejected parts to its storage box.
  • The system is equipped with metal sensor to detect the workpieces material, and color sensor to indicate the color of the pieces, and an object detection sensor to count the number of workpieces.
  • The first station is the service station which includes the switches module.
  • The Loading system consists of hopper, light barrier, object detection sensors, color sensor, metal/non-metal sensor and piston.
  • The hopper is supplied with a light barrier at its bottom to sense the existence of the parts within it.
  • A pneumatic piston which is mounted to the hopper moves the test parts depending on signals received from the light barrier.
  • The moved object is passed by object detection sensor, color sensor, and metal sensor to state its presence, its color, and its material.
  • The proximity object detection sensor sends its signals to the transport station while the color and metal sensors send their signals to the sorting station.
  • The Transporting system consists of moveable arm and suction cup.
  • The arm moves 180 degrees by using a rotary cylinder attached to it.
  • A suction cup is attached to the arm in order to transport the parts from the hopper to the start of measuring station.
  • The measuring system consists of rod-less cylinder, piston, and analog transmitter.
  • Analog transmitter is provided to determine the presence and the height of the parts giving signals to the PLC.
  • If the object is accepted it is transmitted to the storage.
  • Otherwise, the object is rejected
  • The storing system consist of DC motor, encoder, belt conveyer and light barrier
  • The Conveyor is driven using DC motor which is supplied with encoder that aids in sending feedback for the motor’s speed.
  • A light barrier is provided where it senses the presence the carriage.
  • One piston is used to push each sorted part to its convenient storage box.
  • Three storage boxes are used for the sorted test parts where there is storage for metal parts, non-metal white parts, and non-metal black parts.
  • The unit is supplied with a light barrier mounted to detect if the storage is full and it can’t receive any more sorted parts.
