The raw material is then brought to milling station via conveyor where the robot will transfer the raw material to the milling machine. The robot then will transfer the processed material back to the conveyor.BTM 3342 Computerized Integrated Manufacturing System Lab  BTM 3342 Computerized Integrated Manufacturing System Lab GMI’s CIM System  The system is developed by Bistanika Sdn. Bhd. 5 remote PLCs and 4 web client workstations which are connected to a local area network (LAN). a flat screen TV. The system forming the Lab Work 3: Machine Raw Material Computer Integrated Manufacturing in Objectives virtual environment as teaching aids tools that After completing this lab you will be able to    provide assistant for Retrieve 4 raw materials from ASRS. main workstation.

Turn off PS4 to indicate that the robot has picked raw material from X1Y1.2 Make sure the PLC of the station has powered up and transparent symbol sheet of ‘Mode 02’ is applied.BTM 3342 Computerized Integrated Manufacturing System Lab  Procedure 1 Requesting single-station mode for ‘Machine Raw Material’ 1.2 1. PS4.1 2. and ID of all 4 materials available in the ASRS (observed through SCADA page). click ‘Remote’. PS6 and PS7 button is turned on. 2 Retrieving raw material from ASRS 2. Click ‘Request’. what happened to the PLC outputs?

Turn off PS8.BTM 3342 Computerized Integrated Manufacturing System Lab  2.4 Turn on PS8 to indicate that the raw material is now on the conveyor. Turn on PS9 to indicate the material is moving through the RFID scanner and then scan the RFID tag that matched the ID number of material stored in X1Y1. Once the ID number of the raw material is displayed at the scanner (On SCADA page). Turn off PS10 and observe ‘Milling Station Status’ on your SCADA page and explain what happen to the robot and the milling machine before and after milling process is done.
