Modelling, simulation and control of a PTC machine hall

Abstract [en]

In this master thesis a flexible manufacturing system for a PTC machine hall has been modelled and simulated using RobCad. This system includes several equipments and machines which have been modelled and arranged to come up with three possible layouts. The machine hall in UW will be moved to a new place in Innovatum (a research area in Trollhättan). The machines were chosen from the existing machine hall according to UW requirements in order not to buy new machines because of economic reasons. The number of cells was also set by UW. The machines and equipments that will be moved are; two CNC machines, three ABB robots, a 4-axis gantry robot which transport the materials between the cells and a conveyor or a flex link which has been proposed in this project for the loading/unloading station use. The purposes of moving the machine hall to Innovatum are: - More people will be able to use the machine hall (i.e. UW, other schools and costumers from other companies for training purposes). - The environment will be more available to do more production operations using the robots and machines. - It will be a good opportunity to develop the programs and software, for that will let UW be able to hire a whole automation package to the costumers. - Students will be nearby to the industries'9 environment and may have more contact with different companies. - Since the new machine hall will attract costumers it will gain incomes to UW. Three layouts have been proposed in this thesis work, and these layouts fulfil all or most of the requirements of the costumers and users.
