ADM 2030 - Cell Integration Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture 2Lab 2
Course Description: This course is an introduction to the basic control systems used to automate manufacturing processes. Course content includes: hydraulics and pneumatics used for motion control, PLCs programmable controllers, sensors and vision systems, robotics used in designing a computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) cells. This is a hands-on, team-based class giving students the basic concepts needed to design manufacturing automation systems. Students will use both hard automation and robots used in cell based manufacturing systems.
Prerequisite(s): ADM 2020 with a grade of C or higher.
- The flexible manufacturing cell
- Cell simulation tools
- Switches and controllers
- Vision systems
- Photoelectric sensors
- Automated controls
- Data gathering systems
- Implementation and integration of cell sub-systems
- Testing and troubleshooting
At the end of this course students will be able to:
- define cell automation for manufacturing.
- define robotic technologies typical in cell automation systems.
- describe traditional manufacturing systems.
- determine data requirement needs when designing a manufacturing cell.
- identify components needed in the design of an automated manufacturing cell.
- trouble-shoot an automated manufacturing cell and its associated data communication systems.
