MREN 320  Automation: Machine Design and Control  Units: 3.50  

This courses introduces fundamental concepts for designing automation machines: designing and specifying machine elements such as cams, gears and drives; designing mechanisms that generate different types of motion for part feeding, orienting, transferring and indexing; controlling motion through pneumatic and electric actuators and PLCs; machine vision systems for inspection; and condition monitoring machines for fault detection and safety. Students will get hands-on experience programming and controlling an automation machine through a series of labs with a tabletop mechatronic workcell.
