We developed a CIM system that is flexible and expandable with a wide range of machine tools, automation devices, robots and software to be integrated into a system. It is based on the open concept of sharing data that able to interfaces with CAD/CAM, databases, MRP and other manufacturing software. The system provides maximum flexibility using cell controller technology to communicate with various components or parts incorporated in the CIM system.
This system provides the benefit of extending the system at any time with additional modules. CIM system is suitable to used as a teaching and training of manufacturing engineering students in areas related to industrial automation, material handling, CNC machining, assembly, vision inspection, robotics system and system integration.
