Introduction
The process starts by retrieving raw material from ASRS station.
The raw material is then brought to milling station via conveyor
where the robot will transfer the raw material to the milling
machine. The robot then will transfer the processed material back to
the conveyor.

Procedure
1 Requesting single-station mode for Machine Raw Material
1.1
1.2
1.3

On the main SCADA page, click Remote.


Click Store Raw Material button to open the page of that station.
Click Request. The request can be approved from the SCADA page at the main
workstation.

2 Retrieving raw material from ASRS


2.1

2.2

Make sure the PLC of the station has powered up and transparent symbol sheet of
Mode 02 is applied, PS4, PS5, PS6 and PS7 button is turned on, and ID of all 4
materials available in the ASRS (observed through SCADA page).
If the request has been approved, click Remote start to start the operation.
Observe the PLC indicators and the SCADA page, what happened to the PLC
outputs?

The robot now should have moved to the ASRS to pick up the first raw material. Turn
off PS4 to indicate that the robot has picked raw material from X1Y1. Observe the
outputs.

3 Transfer raw material to manufacturing station


3.1

3.2

Now the raw material will be moved to the manufacturing station. Turn off PS8, Turn
on PS9 to indicate the material is moving through the RFID scanner and then scan
the RFID tag that matched the ID number of material stored in X1Y1.
Once the ID number of the raw material is displayed at the scanner (On SCADA
page), turn off PS9 and turn on PS10 to indicate that the raw material is now
proceeds to the manufacturing station. Observe the output.

4.1

Now the robot will start to transfer raw material to the milling machine. Turn off PS10
and observe Milling Station Status on your SCADA page and explain what happen
to the robot and the milling machine before and after milling process is done.
Milling Station operation:

Now that the processed part is on the conveyor, turn on PS10 again to indicate that
the material is now on the conveyor. Observe the output.

The process stops here. Now the processed material can proceed to station
Assembly, Barcode Printing and Unloading. When the process at all stations has
completed, repeat step 2 to 4 for the next raw material. Repeat until all 4 raw
material is processed.

5 Discussions and report


Write a brief report about the exercise above. Your discussions should include the process layout of the
system, flowchart of the process, description of the process from start to finish, and explanation of the
functions of Conveyor, Vision System, Industrial Robot, RFID Scanner, ASRS , and Milling Machine in
the system and suggest 1 alternative component that can perform similar functions.
