CIM and FMS Systems

Computer Integrated Manufacturing & Flexible Manufacturing Systems

Our CIM and FMS systems are modular and flexible solutions for educating and training students in the principles and technologies of computer integrated manufacturing.


Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system has several key components: an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS), at least one automated workstation such as CNC machining, a continuous-loop conveyor, a central management control station, a TCP/IP communication network, and CIM controll software.



Storage Station

Storage Station

The ASRS storage station is a floor-mounted or a table top automated storage and retrieval (ASRS) system designed for educational use.
The system’s dedicated Cartesian robot transfers parts between storage cells and conveyor pallets stopped at the ASRS station. The robot is controlled by a dedicated ASRS software module. An optional hand-held teach pendant can also be used for direct control of the ASRS.


Storage Station

Machine Tending Station

This package can be used as a stand-alone workcell, or integrated within a CIM system. The robot tends the CNC machine and performs other part manipulation and/or assembly tasks. When used in a CIM system, the robot loads and unloads parts to and from the CIM conveyor. The robot is mounted on a linear slidebase for mobility and larger work area. Any of the Machine Tending Station can be provided as a standalone FMS.


Storage Station

Assembly & Quality Control Station

The assembly and QC station is equipped with a variety of assembly and quality control devices as well as with local storage devices.

This turnkey station gives students training and skills in assembly, quality control, robotic programming and automated manufacturing systems.


Storage Station

PLC Station

The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) can control and monitor the flow of pallets on the conveyor with the help of sensors and actuators that are built into the stop stations.


Storage Station

Pallet Tracking Station

The stop station allows the PLC to control and monitor the flow of pallets on the conveyor with the help of sensors and actuators that are built into the stop stations.


Storage Station

Management Station

Management Station comes with Yornew CIM software
Yornew CIM software provides a comprehensive solution for the study and practice of CIM/FMS methods and operations.
Yornew CIM software integrates real-time information with the system’s PC-based database, and maintains online communication with all subsystems through a LAN, a lab network or the Internet.



ASRS-36

The ASRS 36u has 36 cells arranged in six rows. Each cell can store a part-holding template. The 36 templates supplied with the system have pin holes that allow the user to customize the template's holding area to accommodate objects of various shapes and sizes. .

A template buffer supplied with the system can be attached to a CIM conveyor or to a table in a stand-alone ASRS/robotic work cell. The robot is controlled by a dedicated ASRS software module in the CIM software. The software provides display and tracking ASRS contents, enables real-time control of inventory, and controls the robotic storage and retrieval operations. An optional hand-held teach pendant can also be used for direct control of the ASRS.
The ASRS station may also include RFID code scanning system for real-time identification and verification of part-carrying templates.

Machine Tending Stations



The Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) exposes students to automation and industrial applications by combining CNC technology with robotics and materials handling. Students develop and edit programs,record precise robotic positions, accurately mill parts, and synchronize mill and robot operation. Students gain “virtual hands-on” experience in CNC and robot programming, especially in I/O commands.
These packages can be used as a stand- alone workcell, or integrated within a CIM system. The robot tends the CNC machine and performs other part manipulation and/or assembly tasks. When used in a CIM system, the robot loads and unloads parts to and from the CIM conveyor. The robot is mounted on a linear slidebase for mobility and larger work area.

Conveyors



The conveyor frame is constructed of extruded, black anodized aluminum. A double flexible-chain moves in the inner and outer rails and moves the load (pallets) by friction. Due to the modular concept a large variety and sizes of conveyors can be created. To maximize efficiency of part conveyance in the CIM system, pallets are not removed from the conveyor. Instead, the pallets carry part templates (holders) that are loaded and unloaded.
at each station by robots and manipulators. The pallets are thus free to transport parts and materials to and from any CIM station. RFID codes embedded on the underside of the pallets enable tracking.
Design and construction:
Minimum conveyor dimensions: = approx. 10 m total length.
•Maximum conveyor total length: 25 m.
•Maximum conveyor turns: 6
•Conveyor rails constructed of extruded, black anodized aluminum, with continuous slots for mounting additional hardware
•Conveyor driven by a single 220/380 VAC Motor, 3-phase,
•Start/stop control disconnects power to the drive motor, with safety overload breaker and adjustable sensitivity.
•Conveyor stations: assemblies for stopping part/template carrying pallets; each station is a self- contained module, including electrical and air connectors and integrated pallet tracking system.
