Modeling and Implementation of Automation Systems Applying Project Methodologies – Thermal Shrink Packaging Machine


Article Preview

The systems developed to automatize machines or industrial processes are applications of techniques or equipment in order to increase their efficiency, maximizing the production with the lowest consumption of energy and raw materials, reducing the emission of waste and aiming at improving safety conditions of materials, humans and process information. It can also simply be aimed at reducing the effort or human interference over a process or machine. One of the greatest difficulties in a project of an automated system is its specification. For that, the present study intends to model and develop an automated system applied to a packaging machine by thermal shrink, using the tools SA-RT, UML, IEC 61131-based rule system, supervisory system Elipse SCADA and the object-oriented programming.
