The laboratory is framed within the field of mechanized and automatized systems using compressed air and electrical energy. The laboratory is equipped with several types of pneumatic and electropneumatic components and didactic panels where is possible put together, simulate and test several pre-designed pneumatic and electropneumatic (logical) circuits associated to different specific subjects such as Mechanization and automation, Theory of systems and automatic machines and Assembly devices and machines. In the laboratory there can be found didactics panels with the possibility of recreating several tasks, assembly/disassembly„Pick and Place“ manipulator, smart pneumatics Cartesian Manipulator and the use of electric drive programming variants based on the logical control of several types of PLCs and Controllers.
With the help of this PLC controlled pneumatic manipulator belonging to the Cartesian structure it is possible to carry out the assembly and disassembly within the workstation for mass production.
Use of small and medium-sized batches production strategy supported by the use of PLC-controlled pneumatic axes
