Automation in assembly line

  1. 1. PRESENTATION ON- AUTOMATION IN PRODUCTION LINE PRESENTED BY Pranav Teli.
  2. 2. Introduction • Automation can be defined as a technology concerned with the application of electronics,mechanical & computer-based control systems to operate and control the production. • To perform a task without human intervation to improve the productivity & quality • CNC,PLC,Automated guided vehicle,robots
  3. 3. history 1.Manual control 2.Pneumatic control 3.Hard wire logic control 4.Electronic control using gate 5.PLC
  4. 4. Reasons for automation 1. To increase labor productivity 2. To reduce labor cost 3. To improve worker safety 4. To improve product quality 5. To reduce manufacturing lead time 6. To accomplish processes that cant be done manually
  5. 5. Control Systems Sensors and Actuators Automated Machine Tools Industrial Robotics Logic Controllers Handling Systems Storage Systems Identification Systems Manufacturing Cells Assembly Lines Flexible Manufacturing Systems
  6. 6. L shaped U shaped Rectangular
  7. 7. • Linear transfer systems: Continuous motion –not common for automated systems Synchronous motion –intermittent motion, all parts move simultaneously Asynchronous motion –intermittent motion, parts move independently • Rotary indexing mechanisms: Geneva mechanism Others
  8. 8. advantages • Accurate & consistent information • Faster fault identification • Increased production • Improved availability of system • Reduced cost • Maintenance of quality & quantity • Improved safety conditions
  9. 9. disadvantages • Technology limits:current technology is unable to automate all the desired tasks • Unpredictable development cost • High initial cost
