EasyPLC Machining Center Loading Robots

The EasyPLC machining center loading robots will demonstrate sequencing and robot control using a PLC. Two input lines feed blanks to the robot. The robot will alternate taking the blanks and putting them into the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine. The robot moves the piece to the finished conveyor when the part has been machined. A three-axis robot loader will pick up the part and place this in a storage box on the roller conveyor.
EasyPLC Machining Center Loading RobotsUsing the five steps for PLC program development, we will discuss and show you how to program this EasyPLC machining center. This will involve all the ladder logic to load and unload using the robot simulator. This PLC simulator will show sequencing and drum instruction programming using timers and events. An Automation Direct BRX Do-More PLC is used for this application, but the general methods can be used for just about any PLC on the market. Let’s get started.

Freight Carrier Weighing & Distribution EasyPLC

The freight carrier weighing and distribution will demonstrate sequencing and shift registers on the EasyPLC machine simulator. The product comes in two different ways and must be organized, weighed, and delivered on the right output ramp. This will be based on the weight of the product. The EasyPLC simulator freight carrier will show you how you can control this process through a programmable logic controller. Learning PLC programming can sometimes be challenging, but EasyPLC allows you to practice and learn your ladder logic skills on the controller of your choice. It is the best method of learning industrial control PLC programming.

EasyPLC Simulator Robotic Cell Click PLC

The Machine Simulator (MS) is part of the EasyPLC software suite. It has many built-in machines that are used to show different programming techniques. The robotic cell example is one of these machines. This will demonstrate a sequencer example. In this case, an engine is lifted and placed onto a rack. The logic will step through various steps to perform the task.
EasyPLC Simulator Robotic Cell Click PLCWe will be using a Click PLUS PLC and the Click programming software to program this EasyPLC machine simulator engine loader of the robotic cell. This will be done using Modbus TCP (Ethernet) for communications. The program will allow you to start, stop and jog the sequencer. Using the five steps for program development, we will show how this sequencer is programmed. Let’s get started.

EasyPLC Software Suite – Quick Start

The EasyPLC Software Suite is a complete PLC, HMI, and Machine Simulator. This quick start aims to help you quickly learn this software suite. The manual that comes with EasyPLC Software Suite can always be referenced when required.
EasyPLC Quick Start Software Suite
EasyPLC Quick Start Software SuiteWe will be using the simple conveyor in the machine simulator. The EasyPLC PLC will be used to program the ladder logic for this simple conveyor. Compiling and transferring the program to the EasyPLC Virtual CPU, we will demonstrate the conveyor’s control. An HMI will also be programmed to indicate the direction of the conveyor. Let’s get started.

Click PLC Simple Conveyor EasyPLC

The Machine Simulator (MS) is part of the EasyPLC software suite. It has many built-in machines that can be programmed. A simple conveyor is one of these machines. This is usually the starting point for learning about the machine simulator. This conveyor example will use two digital inputs and two digital outputs. A pallet will move back and forth on the conveyor. When the pallet is detected on each end it will stop and reverse direction. If both motors are started at the same time, the motors will burn up. This will be demonstrated. The machine simulator will allow you as the programmer to make mistakes before trying your program in the physical world.
Click PLC Simple Conveyor EasyPLCThe Click PLC will be used to program this virtual machine. Using the Click Plus PLC, we will connect the simulator to the simple conveyor machine. This will be done using Modbus TCP (Ethernet) for communications. Using the five steps for program development we will show how this is programmed. Let’s get started.
