The modular features of this flexible automation cell enables the introduction of variations in its stations so that they adapt to the different requirements of companies and training centers. From a simple configuration of one station only (working fully autonomously) to a complex configuration with eight or ten stations, the possibilities are endless.


In addition, it facilitates a staggered investment, i.e. starting with an initial simple configuration which can be easily enhanced by adding workstations.


All the components in the FMS-200 are used in industry, so that the user can work with real elements at all times making the learning process more meaningful.


The system includes a whole series of feeding, handling, verification and loading operations etc. carried out using components from different technologies (pneumatics, hydraulics, sensors, robotics, communications, control and HMI.).FMS-200 includes the breakdown simulation system which generates up to 16 different breakdowns to be diagnosed by the user.


The different process stations assemble a turning mechanism. To provide the system with greater flexibility, stations adapt to a wide variety of assemblies, introducing variations in the materials, colours and part sizes. The combination of all these possibilities means that a total of 24 different assemblies can be obtained enabling the use of production management strategies.

The control panel is completely modular and can be rapidly disassembled so the user can design and integrate a new control.


Each station of FMS-200 carries out one part of the process.


• FMS-201: Body supply


In this station, the base which acts as the support to the assembled product is fed. >> (more)


• FMS-202: Bearing selection/ supply


In this station, the bearing is assembled in the base housing. Bearings with different heights can be selected.>> (more)


• FMS-203: Hydraulic press


This phase of the press fits bearing inserted in the previous station using a hydraulic ram. >> (more)


• FMS-204: Shaft selection/ supply


The shaft is inserted into the product. There are two types of shafts manufactured from different materials: aluminium and nylon. >> (more)


 • FMS-205: Cover selection/ supply


This station inserts a lid on the set of parts. There are 6 different types of lids: depending on material, colour and height. >> (more)


• FMS-206: Screws supply


This station inserts four screws in the base of the workpiece. >> (more) 


• FMS-207: Robotized screwing


The seventh FMS-200 station integrates robotics technology. The robot screws in the four screws inserted in the product by the previous station. In addition, shaft and lid assembly exchange operations can be carried out. >> (more)


• FMS-208: Automatic warehouse


 This station stores the finished products. >> (more)


• FMS-209: Paint drying in oven


During this phase of the assembly a paint drying process is simulated using a polycarbonate oven. >> (more) 


 • FMS-210: Quality control using artificial vision


The incorporation of this station in the FMS-200 family represents the integration of the artificial vision technology via artificial vision. The workpiece is transferred to the inspection position in which an artificial vision camera examines it against a known good part. Size, shape, missing holes can all be verified. >> (more)


The transfer system:

In order to provide the most flexible solutions for our customers needs, FMS-200 is available in two different versions: with a four meters long linear transfer system or with modular transfer sections coupled to each station. The two options are described below.


• Linear transfer


This is a rectangular transfer system through on which pallets containing the workpiece circulate around the stations. >> (more)  


• Modular transfer


In this FMS-200 version, each of the stations includes an individual transfer section. Multiple combinations of layouts can be developed, with the option of joining stations at 90º or 180º (section in curve, straight section). >> (more) 


Common element in all stations: Power supply, anodised aluminium structure, control keypad, solenoid valve block, labels for cables, electric connection terminals, speed controllers, air treatment unit, control PLC* and user manual and practice manual.


* Options: PLC Siemens, Omron, Mitsubishi, Allen Bradley, Schneider or without PLC.
