The functionality of fully operational industrial solutions depends on Material Handling and Process Controls systems. These systems employ a variety of devices (mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic) interfacing with the machines and operators to monitor and control their processes. Along with the digital and analog inputs and outputs, communication through network protocols (DeviceNet, Ethernet, etc.) manages this complicated equipment.
MIS Controls assembles the control systems for multiple manufacturing processes and tool applications.
Storage equipment is essential to any manufacturing company. Shelves and racks with automated or semi-automated functioning ease the process of distribution and product management.
Bulk equipment utilizes more machine processes such as stacking, elevating, conveying, and dumping. Large machinery stores, transports, and controls material while in the loose production stage.
Vehicles or certain equipment move materials of larger quantities or sizes. Automated and manual systems handle processes, but Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV) perform pre-programmed functioning such as lifting material, loading, sliding, and transporting.
Engineered systems involve more complicated designs with multiple operations, usually warehouse automation. AGVs, conveyor belts, robotic delivery systems, and Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) fall under this category.
Material Handling incorporates many aspects of the industrial process. MIS Controls assembles systems that maintain the movement, protection, storage, and control of materials and products throughout manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, consumption, and disposal. As a process, material handling involves both semi-automated and automated equipment that require systems to make the supply chain work.
Process Control Systems (PCS), or Industrial Control Systems, act as equipment that monitors and gives feedback for troubleshooting purposes throughout the manufacturing process. Examples of PCS types include Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), and Distributed Control Systems (DCS) that all process data while production continues. These systems monitor pressure, flow rate, force/torque, and temperature through various sensors. The automated nature of these systems is integral in the project management of complex assemblies.
The many systems that contribute to the Industrial and Material Handling efforts require controls to create a streamlined process. Some of these systems include:
