Mechatronics Inventory Storage Station: 87-MS7

Amatrol’s Automated Inventory Storage System (87-MS7) is the seventh station of the 870 Mechatronics Learning System and allows learners to gain valuable skills used in inventory storage processes by studying operation, adjustment, and programming of an inventory storage system.. This learning system will allow learners to practice and study operating a programmable parts storage station, adjusting a phototransistor optical interrupter switch, and designing a PLC program that provides manual/auto/reset functions for a programmable parts storage station.

This mechatronics learning system features real-world components like infrared sensors, pneumatic grippers and brakes, pick and place storage and more! Learners will use these and other components to practice mechatronics safety, torque clamp module sequencing, station operation, and non-servo electric slide sequencing. Amatrol uses components that learners will find on-the-job in order to give the best opportunity to build confidence and industrial competencies.

Utilize Industrial Grade Components to Adjust Pneumatic Brakes and Grippers

The 87-MS1 is a mobile workstation with slotted work surface that contains an operator station, powered feed module, pneumatic pick and place manipulator, finished parts storage module, parts set, a pneumatic distribution module as well as an electrical distribution module, an electro-pneumatic valve manifold, and a digital I/O interface module. Learners will use these components to practice vital mechatronics skills, such as: adjusting shock absorbers; operating pneumatic manipulators; sequencing powered parts feeders; and more.

Amatrol’s World-Class Mechatronics Training with Siemens and Allen-Bradley PLCs

The 87-MS7 is just one of the world-class mechatronics training options offered by Amatrol. Other mechatronics stations include Pick and Place (87-MS1), Gauging Station (87-MS2), Orientation Processing (87-MS3), Sorting/Buffering (87-MS4), Servo Robotic Assembly (87-MS5-P2), Torque Assembly (87-MS6), and CNC Mill – Denford CNC Micromill (87-MS8M60), and Mechatronics Hydraulic Press Learning System (87-MS9). Additionally, Amatrol offers Mechatronics PLC training with both Siemens S7300 and Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLCs. While an Amatrol Mechatronics line can feature just Allen-Bradley or Siemens PLCs, this automated line also allows for a mix so that learners can train on industry’s two most widely-utilized PLCs simultaneously.

Unmatched Automated Inventory System Curriculum and Hands-On Skills

Multimedia Courseware – Mechatronics (Allen-Bradley CompactLogix L16/Studio 5000) (M2500)

Amatrol’s world-class curriculum, which comes with the selected PLC, combines strong theoretical knowledge and concepts with hands-on skills for the best industrial competency-building on the market. This thorough, exceptionally detailed curriculum is built to begin with the basics and steadily advance to more complex concepts and skill. The Inventory Storage station teaches interfacing, problem solving, programming, sequencing and operation for pick and place storage, pneumatic grippers and brakes, infrared sensors, and a programmable pneumatic traverse module. This station sorts the completed assemblies of working industrial directional control valves. Interactive multimedia is included for select Allen Bradley and Siemens processors

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.
