Automatic mask production machine parts introduction:
The controller refers to the master order device that changes the wiring of the main circuit or the control circuit and changes the resistance value in the circuit to control the starting, speed regulation, braking and reverse of the motor.
Common controllers used in automation factories are PLC, industrial mini computer,. etc.
Programmable logic controller, which uses a type of programmable memory for storing programs, performing user-oriented instructions such as logic operations, sequence control, timing, counting, and arithmetic operations, and is controlled by digital or analog input / output Type of machinery or production process.
Robot, a robot is a machine device that automatically performs work. It can accept human commands, and run pre-programmed programs, or perform actions based on principles established by AI technology.
Its task is to assist or replace human tasks, such as production, construction, or hazardous work. Robots are generally composed of actuators, drives, detection devices and control systems and complex machinery.
Servo motor refers to the engine that controls the operation of mechanical components in the servo system, and is a device for auxiliary motor indirect speed transmission.
The servo motor can control the speed and position accuracy accurately, and convert the voltage signal into torque and speed to drive the control object.
The speed of the servo motor rotor is controlled by the input signal and make response. In the automatic control system, it is used as an actuator and has the characteristics of small time constant, high linearity, and starting voltage. It can convert the received electrical signal into Angular displacement or angular velocity output on the motor shaft.
A sensor is a detection device that can sense the measured information, and can transform the sensed information into electrical signals or other required forms of information output in order to realize transmit, process, store, display, record, and control requirements; it is an essential link to achieve automatic detection and automatic control.
In the process of modern industrial automation production, it is necessary to use various sensors to monitor and control various parameters in the production process, so that the equipment works in a normal state, and the product reaches a high quality. Therefore, it can be said that the modern production would lost its foundation if excellent sensors not existed.
Ultrasonic generator is a kind of equipment that converts the mains power to the corresponding high-frequency AC power of the transducer to drive the transducer to work. It is an important part of a high-power ultrasonic system. It can also be called an electronic box, Ultrasonic drive power supply, ultrasonic controller.
Solenoid valves are industrial equipment controlled by electromagnetics, and are basic automation components used to control fluid. They belong to actuators and are not limited to hydraulic and pneumatic.
It is used in industrial control systems to adjust the direction, flow rate, speed and other parameters of the medium; the solenoid valve can be used with different circuits to achieve the expected control.
There are many types of solenoid valves. Different solenoid valves play different roles in the control system. Commonly used are check valves, safety valves, directional control valves, speed control valves, etc.
7. Industrial Camera
Industrial camera is a key component in machine vision system, and its essential function is to convert light signals into AFT-808 small high-definition industrial cameras as ordered electrical signals.
The industrial camera is generally installed on the machine assembly line instead of the human eye for measurement and judgment, and is converted into an image signal through a digital image capture target and transmitted to a dedicated image processing system.
The image system performs operations on these signals to extract the features of the target, and then controls the field equipment operations based on the results of the discrimination.
Instruments and meters are instruments or equipment used to detect, measure, observe and calculate physical quantity, material composition, physical parameters, etc. Vacuum leak detector, pressure gauge, length tester, microscope, multiplier, etc. are belong to instruments.
Various kinds of instruments and meters are used in the automation factory, such as measuring the parameters needed in the control process of pressure, liquid level, flow, temperature,. etc.
9. Automation software
Automation software, due to the integration of management and control of the industrial control system, makes the industrial control system connected with the traditional IT management system and the Internet, it support to uses more and more general software, general hardware and general protocol, such as SCADA automation software.
SCADA automation system is what we called data acquisition and monitoring system. It is mainly supported by computer technology. A system for scheduling and automatic control of various production processes;
SCADA automation software support automatically supervise the production for a long time without supervision, and obtain effective information data from it, so as to provide a strong evaluation reference for the supervisors.
10. Control Cabinet
There are many kinds of control cabinets, including electrical control cabinet, frequency conversion control cabinet, low-voltage control cabinet, high-voltage control cabinet, water pump control cabinet, power control cabinet, explosion-proof control cabinet, elevator control cabinet, PLC control cabinet, fire control cabinet,. etc.
Control cabinets always used in factory automation, involves to electric, frequency conversion, power supply and so on.
11. Touch Screen
Industrial grade touch screen, or industrial display often used in automation equipment , to realize display function, they need to have the features of anti-vibration screen, IP65 dust-proof and waterproof protection, anti-scratching, high definition screen and 7*24 long time operation.
