Mechatronics Sorting-Buffering Station: 87-MS4

Amatrol’s Mechatronics Sorting-Buffering Learning System (87-MS4) is training mobile workstation 4 of the 870 Mechatronics Learning System. The 87-MS4 station is a small Mechatronics system in itself with multiple, integrated technologies that can be used stand-alone or in combination with other stations. In efforts to protect workers and machines, industrial safety and operation are emphasized on all Amatrol Mechatronic stations.

The Sorting-Buffering training station teaches interfacing, problem solving, programming, sequencing and operation for sorting, queuing, flat belt conveyors, photoelectric sensors, and inductive sensors. This station performs the role of sorting parts by material type in the process of assembling a working industrial control valve.

The 87-MS4 is a mobile workstation with slotted work surface that contains an operator station, belt conveyor module, part sorting module, buffer module, proximity sensing 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.

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

Amatrol’s unmatched multimedia utilizes text, audio, and stunning 3D animations that engage learners in both theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills. This thorough, exceptionally detailed curriculum is built to begin with the basics and steadily advance to more complex concepts and skills. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading edge educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge and applied skills needed to train learners to work in their chosen field.

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.
