Mechatronics - MAPS 5 ( Flexible Automation System)

This mechatronics system is an exceptional system, designed for free-form automation application design i.e. modules can be configured into many number of grouped or stand-alone exercises. It is a customer-favorite for CAPSTONE projects.

The mechatronics system can be reconfigured by removing and repositioning modules to create different processes and programmed using the PLC software. The teacher can introduce faults into the system for the students to troubleshoot and fix, thus teaching them automation troubleshooting techniques.

The system is built with the following modules: belt conveyor, capacitive sensing, rotary pick & place, linear pick and place, horizontal transfer, push, rotary indexing, dispensing, assembly, screw fastening, print, pneumatic system.
