Manufacturing Automation and Robotics

Objectives

This module adopts an applied learning approach to understanding the application of automation systems, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Robotics, Drives and Motors in a manufacturing environment.  
The aim of this module is to enable the learner to programme an industrial control system for reliable data acquisition and storage. Furthermore, the application of control system hierarchies and data exchange with Robotic Systems will be explored.  

Content includes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to; 
1. Analyse the application of industrial controls, motive power application and automation in a relevant industrial context. 
2. Configure a distributed industrial control architecture with PLCs, Remote I/O, Drive Controllers and a network hub. 
3. Programme an Industrial PLC to acquire digital and analog data and to log the data in an appropriate data historian.  
4. Discuss the application of Robotics and industrial vision systems to manufacturing applications 
5. Integrate industrial data from automation systems to a suitable database application, relevant to the learners practice.
