IMS 1.3: AC transport system

IMS 1.3: AC transport system  

The conveyor belt system is the element that connects all of the subsystems and thus forms the backbone of the entire production line. In the IMS® production line the conveyor belt systems are self-contained modules, which can be integrated with the sub-systems as needed. Basic processes like “positioning” and “speed” can be demonstrated with just this simple system. The three-phase motor with a frequency converter allows the speed to be continuously modified. 

Training objectives for AC transport system

  • Making controlled movements on a single axis

  • Generating ramps for the frequency converter

  • Incremental positioning of a workpiece carrier

  • Disabling movement forwards or backwards

  • Program for monitoring slip and whether a machine is stopped

  • Safe handling of various safety circuits and locks.
