CIM & FMS SYSTEMS

CIM & FMS Systems 

Intelitek’s Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system has several key components: an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS), at least one automated workstation such as CNC machining, a continuous-loop conveyor, a central management control station, a TCP/IP communication network, and OpenCIM software. 

Advanced Manufacturing Training Systems

Assembly & Quality Control

The assembly and QC station is equipped with a variety of assembly and quality control devices as well as with local storage devices.
This turnkey station gives students training and skills in assembly, quality control, robotic programming and automated manufacturing systems.

Welding Station

This turnkey automated welding station gives students training and skills in production welding methods, robotic programming and control. Using RoboCell software students safely perform entire welding processes in 3D simulation before executing actual automated welding applications.
Students learn to overcome common welding problems, such as thermal deformation, by adjusting welding technique. Students also learn to improve weld quality by optimizing important welding parameters such as wire feed rate, robot speed, inert gas shield and voltage.

Storage Station

The ASRS storage station is a floor-mounted or a table top automated storage and retrieval (ASRS) system designed for educational use. The system’s dedicated Cartesian robot transfers parts between storage cells and conveyor pallets stopped at the ASRS station.
The robot is controlled by Controller-USB and by a dedicated ASRS software module in the OpenCIM software. An optional hand-held teach pendant can also be used for direct control of the ASRS.

Machine Tending Stations (FMS)

This package can be used as a stand-alone workcell, or integrated within a CIM system. The robot tends the CNC machine and performs other part manipulation and/or assembly tasks.
When used in a CIM system, the robot loads and unloads parts to and from the CIM conveyor. The robot is mounted on a linear slidebase for mobility and larger work area.
Any of the MTS stations can be provided as a standalone FMS.

Conveyors

The conveyor frame is constructed of extruded, black anodized aluminum. A double flexible-chain moves in the inner and outer rails and moves the load (pallets) by friction.
Due to the modular concept a large variety and sizes of conveyors can be created.

Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Station

The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) can control and monitor the flow of pallets on the conveyor with the help of sensors and actuators that are build into the stop stations.
Various PLC types (Siemens, Omron, Allen-Bradley) and field bus systems (digital I/O, PROFIBUS, ASI bus) are supported.

Pallet Tracking Station

The stop station allows the PLC to control and monitor the flow of pallets on the conveyor with the help of sensors and actuators that are built into the stop stations.
Stop stations for various PLC types (Siemens, Omron, Allen-Bradley) and field bus systems (digital I/O, PROFIBUS, ASI bus) are supported.

Management Station

The OpenCIM software is a computer-integrated systems management solution that contains all the elements found in fully-automated facilities.
Shop floor management controls the operation of all the elements of automated factory.
Administrative software connects the shop floor management to the production facility’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
The OpenCIM software contains an ERP package which breaks down customer orders to analyze bill of materials, check availability of raw materials, produce vendor’s purchase order and schedule production based on expected lead times.
