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?
Structure of pneumatic control systems
Commissioning of mechanical, electrical and pneumatic systems
Use and adjustment of mechanical limit switches
Structure, function and use of magnetically mounted reed contacts
Automation of work processes
The module "Handling device" is an independent element of the Christiani assembly
kit "mMS Junior". It uses a suction cup to pick up workpieces and to put them down
at a different specified point. To enable it to do this, in addition to several
pneumatic cylinders and valves, it is also fitted with an electric motor and a worm
gear for turning the device, plus several other interesting parts.
How it works:
The pneumatic cylinder extends, pressing the suction
cup down to pick up the workpiece. After the workpiece has been picked up, the handling
device is moved to position 1 by the electric motor and the worm gear, which is
used to turn the device. The device sets the workpiece down and waits until the
process is complete. The suction cup then picks the workpiece up again, moves to
the next position, sets the workpiece down again, which it does with great precision
thanks to the sensors/photoelectric barriers, and signals its readiness to hand
over to the downstream module.
