This project is a didactic Mechatronic Set. It is involved of several stations (e.g. 5 & 8 stations) including Distributing, Testing, Buffering, Processing, Handling, Separating, Punching and Storing stations.
These stations simulate a factory product line in which different processes are in handle. At first one part of a product is inserted via distributing station into a conveyor. Then along the path there are a couple of sensors to recognize different types of material (e.g. metal, plastic or wood and etc.). It can also test dimensions of the part to let it go on. Then it is picked up by a Cartesian Robot and in another station it will be pressed or drilled or milled. It has also a buffering station to store extra parts temporally for further usage. It has the handling station to pick and place and move the parts to another station. A separating station also plays the role of separating parts based on the color that they have. Finally the parts are collected in the storing station.
This set is controlled by a PLC S7 313C 2 DP. The components used in this set are pneumatic ,electrical and mechanical.
