Development of Bending Automatic Die-Casting Department
Keywords:Flexible automated line, Mathematical model, Transportation and manufacturing operations, Casting
Background. The main development direction of the foundry at the present stage is its intensive upgrade based on flexible automatized manufacture, including flexible automated lines and flexible automated shops (FAS). Creating of FAS became possible thanks to the emergence of robots and technological systems, the introduction of microelectronics and computer technology in control and management device.
Objective. Analyze the known process control systems, and to develop flexible automated die-casting station.
Methods. The PC simulation method, parameters calculation and design of flexible automated modules were used.
Results. On the basis of information ACSTP of die-casting complex designed ACS of flexible die-casting line to coordinate in real time technological and production processes with continuous-discrete character of the passage. The basic characteristics are given, information and control system functions are provided, algorithms, and the scheme of the site and its parts are described.Conclusions. FAS implementation shows their high efficiency: labor costs for making castings are reduced by 1.5–1.8 times, cycle times and the number of employees are reduced.
