It provides the knowledge and instruction on how to program computer numerical controlled CNC equipment, industrial robots and programmable logic controllers PLCs.
Through a very practical approach, readers will learn specific programming languages related to each technology, including G code and ladder logic.
And Programmable Automation Technologies is sure to be found useful by electrical, industrial, mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology undergraduate students. The rich and detailed introductory text will also appeal to anyone in industry interested in learning about programmable automation and developing the corresponding programming skills. Features Each chapter begins with an overview of the topic with emphasis on desired outcomes and concludes with a summary, questions, and problems where appropriate.
Presents explicit skills and methodologies to aid in the programming process. Features strong examples with numerous illustrations. Uses computer simulation and actual lab equipment extensively in learning activities.
Daniel M. Kandray is a gratudale of Youngstown State University, with an M. Preface For many years I taught an engineering technology course on robotics and flexible automation. I found that books that covered the fairly familiar concept of robotics were available, as were books that did an excellent job with computer numerical control CNC and programmable logic controllers PLCs. However, books that truly addressed flexible automation were not so easy to find.
In fact, it was very difficult to find a single text that incisively and usefully addressed all these engineering technology topics. So, throughout the years I collected and organized necessary and important information concerning flexible automation, from various sources, and disseminated it to my students. Armed with these notes, students would not need to purchase several books that would cover the course topics.
Eventually, I decided to write the present book; with it I hope to fill a significant void in the literature. Flexible automation is the use of a conglomeration of manufacturing equipment organized or connected into a single entity called a manufacturing cell.
Manufacturing cells contain an assortment of material handling equipment, including robots and CNC processing equipment.
To rise from the current economic turmoil the manufacturing industry must become more productive, a goal that is readily achievable through automation. Programmable automation technologies are the building blocks from which all automation is developed.
Hence, the urgent need to improve productivity and become more competitive in the global economy should motivate a significantly greater interest in programmable automation. The present text is organized into a four sections, which follow a logical sequence of inquiry. The first section is introductory: Chapter 1 provides some background on manufacturing and defines programmable automation. Chapter 2 explains calculation methods used to justify automation expenditures, as motivated by productivity concepts.
Robotics is covered in the third section in much the same way that CNC was covered in the second section: Chapter 6 introduces robotics technology and Chapter 7 goes over both robotic programming and simulation.
Note that robotic simulation does not have a dedicated chapter. Finally, Chapter 10 concludes the text with a discussion of how all three technologies are brought together to create a programmable automation cell.
However, anyone with a technical background and a general understanding of manufacturing and manufacturing processes will find this text useful, as well as to those who wish, simply, to study and understand the use of these technologies. Engineering technology is an applied science, so its students need to learn much more than theory: They need also practical knowledge, skills, and abilities that will allow them to readily apply automation technology. For this reason, the text offers plentiful examples and identifies and discusses readily available simulation software with which the reader can experiment.
I welcome and look forward to feedback from students, instructors and the general reader. Please write to me at info industrialpress.
