INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION TRAINING
Industrial automation can be defined as the automatic operation and control of industrial processes through the use of set technologies and automatic control devices, without significant human intervention and attaining superior performance than manual control. Few such automation devices are PLCs, PACs, DCSs etc. and the technologies include various industrial communication systems.
TYPES OF AUTOMATION INDUSTRIES
Food, Beverage Industry
Die Casting Industry
Paper & Pulp Industry
Oil & Gas Industry
HIERARCHY OF AN INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION SYSTEM
Industrial automation systems are mostly very complex in nature, having large number of devices working in synchronization with automation technologies. The different hierarchical levels are as follows:
- Field Level
- Control Level
- Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
- Supervising and Production Control Level
- Information or Enterprise Level
It is like a pyramid in which as we go up, the information gets aggregated and while going down, we get detailed information about the process.
SCOPE OF INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION
Upgradation of existing manual system to automatic system.
Increasing quality and productivity.
Integration of process for process optimisation and synchronisation.
Automation industries tend to achieve efficient manufacturing processes by eliminating various issues with the help of dynamically changing technologies an exceeding any human performance based on precision, accuracy, and speed.
