Name University, Design Technology, 8th December, 2012 Automated Manufacturing process and system Introduction Engineering has made lives easier across the globe because of momentous and amazing creations that are coming up every day. The 21st century engineering operations differ conspicuously with the 1900s activities that had lots of defects…
A developed nation like Sweden doesn’t depend on labor intensive force when carrying out its engineering projects. It has invested massively in designing programmed machinery that work quicker and appropriately. The degree of freedom (DOF) of such equipment is multifaceted: translational, rotary, and angular. Invention and Creation of an Automated Manufacturing System Scientists, programmers and engineers came up together with an idea of automating manufacturing processes by integrating various systems. Two chief components were drawn in to create this system namely: the computer and the machine accessories. A simple automated manufacturing system consists of the following components: A computer structure (CAD system joined to a machine management/control set-up via a transmission BUS cables), servo-mechanical motors, data cables and working heads. This simple set up has changed the world completely and can work where humans are not able to operate. A good example is the recent Gulf of Mexico oil spill where special under-sea robots were sent to seal the bust duct. Following instructions and commands from a ship above the robots worked on damaged section of the rig. ...
