Inventory Station - Table Top Mechatronics: 87-TMS1

Amatrol’s Inventory Feeding Station (87-TMS1) is a portable, affordable mechatronics option that covers the vital industrial skill of automated control training to move parts from point to point. This pneumatically powered station fits on a standard tabletop and features real-world components, such as electro-pneumatic actuators, a magnetic reed switch, and a vacuum switch. The 87-TMS1 also features an AB1000 PLC, 10 inputs, 6 outputs, and much more!

The automated control training device can be used as a stand-alone simulator to teach real-world mechatronics skills or it can be combined with the Inspection & Indexing Station (87-TMS2) and Sorting & Distribution Station (87-TMS3) to form a fully automated line!

Mechatronics | Automation Systems

Modern industry utilizes complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products for an ever demanding world. Amatrol’s Mechatronics training programs teach systems-level thinking and industrial automation skill-building that prepares learners to for mechatronics operation, hands-on PLC programming, and industrial maintenance and problem solving for real-world manufacturing environments. With the proliferation of automation technology, mechatronics is one of the fastest growing technical education programs in the world. Many technologies are integrated to make these sophisticated production systems including mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software. In order to meet this vital industry demand, Amatrol has developed both a large scale mechatronics line and a portable, tabletop mechatronics training system, each with highly interactive eLearning mechatronics courses. Each of these systems is comprised of individual stations that can be purchased separately when mechatronics training is necessary but budgets must be observed or all together to form a total learning experience. This training experience can apply to various careers such as mechatronics engineer / technician, automation engineer / technician, and systems engineer / technician.
