With this assembly kit, students are made familiar with the basic principles and
function of modern automation technology.
The assembly kit is an independently
functioning training module that includes all didactic training materials.
What can students learn with this module?
Application of 24V DC motors as drive units
Power transmission and deflection of rotary movement by gears
Use of pneumatic cylinders with electromagnetic control valves
Use and adjustment of mechanical limit switches
Structure, function and use of photoelectric barriers with photo-transistors
Introduction to linking of industrial production steps
The module "Conveyor belt with separation magazine" consists of a 270 mm long conveyor
belt section and a magazine in which up to 9 workpieces can be stacked and stored.
The conveyor belt is powered by a 24V DC motor.
How it works:
The lowermost workpiece is pushed onto the conveyor belt
by a pneumatic cylinder. A limit switch recognises the workpiece and starts the
conveyor belt, transporting the workpiece across the conveyor belt section. At the
end of the conveyor belt, a photoelectric barrier detects the approaching workpiece,
stops the belt and signals its readiness to hand over to the downstream modules.
