Course Aims

The aims of this course are industrial automation and process equipment/machines. The emphasize will be on mechatronic design issues, particularly the state machine design with and without programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and concepts of pneumatic and (to a lesser degree) hydraulic control circuits including electropneumatics and electrohydraulics. An overview is included of mechanization and material handling, design-for-assembly principles, concepts of fixed, programmable and flexible automation and part and motion sensing. Some of the application examples will be control of a pick and place manipulator (non-servo robot), a three-speed fan control, grinding machine control, and examples of automation systems.
