Manufacturing Automation 1 (Pneumatics)
This module introduces pneumatic and electro-pneumatic technologies used to control machines. The student will study valves, actuators and all aspects of air production, conditioning and distribution. Electro-pneumatic circuits will be designed, simulated and built, including multi-actuator sequences. The student will specify and size components based on system requirements.
Outline the working principles of electro-pnuematic components.
Describe the components of pnuematic and hydraulics actuation.
Simulate, build and test basic and multi-actuator pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits.
Specify, size and select suitable pneumatic components for industrial applications
