- Design and Construction of a pseudo Continuous Single Station Automated Cell
- Published at:Not Found
This paper presents the work implemented in designing, constructing and operating a pseudo continuous automatic drilling machine in which the drilling head acts as two degrees of freedom manipulator. The manipulator carries out a complex planer movement to drill parts being transported by a continuously moving conveyor belt. The produced machine works as single station automated cell that drills single-model wooden parts. The cell is currently utilized in the Production Processes Lab of the Industrial Engineering Department at An-Najah National University. The experience gained in designing and constructing such a Mechatronics system was found to be successful in terms of obtaining a properly working automated cell, as well as enhancing the students’ abilities to understand the concepts of design and construction of an automatic machine in particular and Mechatronics systems in general.
