IMS 12 Production line with 3/4 subsystems 

IMS 12 Production line with 3/4 subsystems 

This facility can be used for fully automated manufacture of a 3-part workpiece (up to eight different final products being permissible). IMS 12 comprises sub-systems for sorting, assembly, testing and handling. All subsystems can be used individually or combined as required. Carriers on dual conveyor belts are used to transport workpieces between the individual sub-systems.

Making exclusive use of actuators and sensors found typically in industrial applications, this training facility permits realistic simulations of complex, continuous industrial production processes. The facility is also controlled by PLC systems commonly used in the industry and incorporating a process-field bus as well as decentralized peripherals. Promoting an acquisition of skills as part of teamwork, the system enables students to independently gain a basic understanding of mechatronic systems.

Each sub-system is designed so that the student can acquire the necessary skills and knowledge step-by-step, starting with simple automation operations and sequences, and ending in development of complex automation programs. Standardized interfaces allow a use of various industrial PLC control units or the UniTrain-I system.

  • Transport system: Dual conveyor belts with DC drive motors

  • IMS 3 sorting sub-system

  • IMS 6 testing sub-system

  • IMS 7 handling sub-system
