Scope of Lab
Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is one of the current concepts
applied in the industry for automatic manufacturing. CIM promises to be the
future of an advanced manufacturing setup where machines can communicate with
their human/computer operators through PLC's and tends to provide an efficient
and optimized solution for job monitoring and handling.
Quality control station helps the station manager through centralized
system of computer systems integrated with machines via plc, communicate job
acceptance and rejection through a central manager. The whole experience of CIM
and its miniature version Micro-CIM enables students to learn the basics of an
automated working environment and also teaches them to communicate with the
machines through plc programming and job preparation on cnc machines through
G-codes and M-codes.
