The goal of automated manufacturing is to drive greater productivity by enhancing processes or fulfilling equipment to automated systems as a reducing-cost business strategy. We are currently living in the mechatronic era, from common household appliances like coffee makers and washing machines to manufacturing robotics for automotive assembly. Achieving automation in the product life cycle comes from the exhaustive analysis of the benefits in terms of product design, engineering development, manufacturing efficiency, as well as, the contribution level to delivering the end-user with a top-quality product. This course presents you with the world of mechatronics in automated manufacturing systems (AMS). You will study the essentials of the design process about drafting and technical drawing employed to generate three-dimensional solid objects in 2D. Furthermore, you will learn the various building blocks associated with an automated mechatronic-based system. With this background, you will comprehend the role of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) in responding to the instabilities of products.
Next, the course explores the key elements of a production system and the purpose of automation through the product life cycle. You will discover how mechatronics is helping to replace the mechanics involved in a typical mechanical watch through an interesting example. Next, you will study the significance of how mechatronics-based automated systems are revolutionizing the manufacturing industry using contemporary technologies. Following this, the use of computer-aided design (CAD) philosophy in the designing of the mechanical components is explained. You will also learn how to identify a model from a prototype through illustrative examples of 3D objects. Subsequently, the various types of fabrication processes used in an automated system are described. You will be taught about several fundamental manufacturing processes like casting, joining, and welding. In addition, the role of additive manufacturing in modelling and prototyping are also explained. The course highlights the fundamental processes, specifications details and the essential applications of various sensors used in the automated industry.
Finally, it explains the variation between a sensor and a transducer and their significance in automatic machine systems such as elevator operation and car airbags. Next, you discover how the proximity sensors are capable of measuring the rotational motion, positioning of an object, the pressure of displacement and light. Following this, you study the role of sensors and transducers in monitoring vibrations, pressure, and temperature through various illustrative examples of domestic, commercial, and industrial applications. Lastly, you will be taught about the procedure for determining the flow and pressure of fluids using sensors. ‘Diploma in Automated Manufacturing Systems’ is an enlightening course that outlines the significance of automation in the development of manufacturing progressions.
