CONTROL IN AUTOMATION SYSTEMS (42 HOURS)

Control in Automation Systems
  • We are revamping the full qualifications for the Graduate Diploma courses. Applicants can still sign up for the individual modules under the specialisations.

Introduction

The launch of the Industrial Transformation Maps by the Singapore government is encouraging and supporting the local industry to adopt robotics and automation technologies to advance manufacturing and improve work productivity. However, adoption of the automation technologies to realise effective automation solutions required deep knowledge and relevant skill sets.

This course focus on topics for various components (both hardware and software) required to set-up an automation control system, and perform motion profile design, planning and tuning to achieve specific performance indicators such as throughput or process repeatability or remote control and monitoring. Participants are trained to be equipped in competences of planning, using, designing and selecting components and systems for automation motion control systems.

Why This Course

  • Real-world projects implementation mimicking high throughput automation, robotics pick-and-place automation or local-remote control and monitoring are discussed and put into practice during sessions
  • Highly practical course content delivered in an intensive and interactive manner
  • Gain understanding on the latest automation technology for control, sensors and communications
  • Case studies highlighting applications of knowledge in manufacturing automations

Who Should Attend

This course targets at mechatronics/mechanical/electrical/control engineers, precision machines and automation systems designers and researchers, process engineers and plant supervisors related to manufacturing equipment and automation systems.
