DL CIM-PMC
Industrial Automation Mechatronics Industrial Robotics

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.

 

COMPOSITION

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.

 

TARGET

Ideal for 4 students to work simultaneously. Vocational and technical schools Applicable to courses in: Automation, Electronics, Mechatronics, Electro pneumatics and Process Control.

 

TRAINING OBJECTIVES

The trainer focuses on the study of a programmable manufacturing cell and implementation of an industrial process. It demonstrates the role and the integration of the typical actuators (electric, pneumatic) into process executions.

The performances of the actuators influence the quality of industrial automation functions. Together with the sensors, they ensure and increase the value of manufacturing processes.

Sensors, actuators and transducers work together, allowing the students to perform practices on different topics related to automation such as:

  • PLC programming.
  • Material transport with conveyor belt.
  • Using sensor for product detection (material, colour, and position).
  • Understanding of an assembly process system.
  • Use of a Cartesian robot with pneumatic gripper.

HIGHLIGHTS

The DL CIM-PMC is a compact solution that covers many transversal applications and didactic topics in the areas of Automation, Pneumatics, Mechatronics, Electronics, and Process Control.

It not only uses a proof of concepts approach; but it also simulates a real application of industrial sensors and actuators, programmable logic control (PLC), and dedicated information and computer technologies (ICT-s).

All training topics are designed to understand the CIM main functions and components, where the sensors collect the information needed for inspections and handling, the actuators execute the process, and the PLC monitors and controls manufacturing algorithms.

The trainer implements sequential operations, with some automated parallel work. Each substation can be studied separately learning about its specific components and functionalities of each manufacturing phase:

  • Material transport and detection.
  • Product assembly.
  • Storage and Warehouse management.

The provided CIM software for PLC shows the openness of the system for expansion, or customization. At the same time, it can be a ready-for-industry implementation solutions because it has been tested on the CIM trainer.
