Preface to Programmable Automation Technologies PDF E-book
For a few years I taught an engineering expertise course on robotics and versatile automation. I discovered that books that lined the pretty acquainted idea of robotics have been out there, as have been books that did a superb job with laptop numerical management (CNC) and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Nonetheless, books that really addressed versatile automation weren’t really easy to discover. In reality, it was very tough to discover a single textual content that incisively and usefully addressed all these engineering expertise subjects.
So, all through the years I collected and organized crucial and vital info regarding versatile automation, from varied sources, and disseminated it to my college students.
Armed with these notes, college students wouldn’t want to buy a number of books that will cowl the course subjects. Ultimately, I made a decision to write the current guide; with it I hope to fill a big void within the literature.
Versatile automation is the usage of a conglomeration of producing gear organized or related right into a single entity referred to as a producing cell.
Manufacturing cells comprise an assortment of fabric dealing with gear, together with robots and CNC processing gear.
Most frequently the cell’s actions are orchestrated and directed by a PLC. The robotic, CNC gear, and PLC make the cell “versatile,” as they are often programmed and reprogrammed to carry out all kinds of duties and produce totally different merchandise.
This single textual content addresses all three applied sciences of robotics, CNC, and PLCs. But, “versatile automation” is, actually, a misnomer.
Whereas it’s true that the time period is acceptable for a particular manufacturing cell by which the applied sciences are employed, when grouping robotics, CNC, and PLCs underneath a collective banner, one ought to spotlight what these applied sciences have in frequent—specifically, “programmability.”
Subsequently, these applied sciences are collectively named “programmable automation applied sciences,” and this guide is so titled: Programmable Automation Technologies: An Introduction to CNC, Robotics and PLCs.
Whereas I used to be penning this textual content, the nation’s—certainly the world’s—financial system plunged right into a extreme recession. To rise from the present financial turmoil the manufacturing trade should grow to be extra productive, a aim that’s readily achievable by means of automation.
Programmable automation applied sciences are the constructing blocks from which all automation is developed. Therefore, the pressing want to enhance productiveness and grow to be extra aggressive within the world financial system ought to inspire a considerably larger curiosity in programmable automation.
The current textual content is organized right into a 4 sections, which comply with a logical sequence of inquiry. The primary part is introductory
Chapter 1 offers some background on manufacturing and defines programmable automation. Chapter 2 explains calculation strategies used to justify automation expenditures, as motivated by productiveness ideas.
The second part treats laptop numerical management: Chapter 3 introduces CNC expertise, Chapter 4 discusses CNC programming, and Chapter 5 addresses CNC simulation.
Robotics is roofed within the third part in a lot the identical method that CNC was lined within the second part: Chapter 6 introduces robotics expertise and Chapter 7 goes over each robotic programming and simulation.
(Observe that robotic simulation doesn’t have a devoted chapter.) The final part of the textual content addresses PLCs: Chapter 8 introduces PLCs and Chapter 9 covers programming and simulation of PLCs.
Lastly, Chapter 10 concludes the textual content with a dialogue of how all three applied sciences are introduced collectively to create a programmable automation cell.
Engineering expertise college students at two- and four-year schools comprise the guide’s main viewers. Nonetheless, anybody with a technical background and a basic understanding of producing and manufacturing processes will discover this textual content helpful, in addition to to those that want, merely, to examine and perceive the usage of these applied sciences.
Engineering expertise is an utilized science, so its college students want to study way more than concept: They want additionally sensible information, abilities, and talents that may permit them to readily apply automation expertise.
For that reason, the textual content provides plentiful examples and identifies and discusses available simulation software program with which the reader can experiment.
