3D Automation is able to satisfy innovative and sophisticated requirements in the field of industrial automation. It has the necessary technical skills to develop applications on different types of platforms and with the most varied programming languages such as:
– Delphi, Visual C ++, Visual Basic, Java, C#, Php
– Labview, Codesys
– SCADA (Wonderware)
– TIAPortal, FactoryTalk View
It also has experience in the development of machines with on board PLCs of the major worldwide manufacturers (Siemens, Allen Bradley, Telemecanique, Omron), axis control (Fanuc, IndraWorks, Elau) and vision systems (Cognex, Advanced Technologies).
Thanks to its technicians 3D Automation follows the client at all stages of the project: choice of technologies, analysis, software development, commissioning, production and maintenance.
Choice of suitable technologies
3D Automation provides the customer with its knowledge of technologies of the industrial automation leading manufacturers and guides the client in choosing the most appropriate technologies to the development of the project and the solution of problems related to it.
After completion of the project, 3D provides its customer with support in case of problems with contracts of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance and ad hoc services.
Debugging and release of software
Once software development has been completed, 3D Automation technicians proceed to debug the software in order to provide a software as much as possible optimized and free of bugs before the actual start of the project.
Integration and production data analysis
3D Automation provides customers with its experience in the development of monitoring systems; through the use of these systems the plant is constantly monitored and data analysis allows to improve the manufacturing processes.
Analysis and project planning
3D Automation satisfies the client at all stages, first providing the know-how of its experts to analyze the project together with the client, then suggesting the best approach to solve the situation, thanks to twenty years experience in industrial automation. In this way the customer can save money as well as resources to achieve the desired objective.
Implementation of the project
When the software is debugged and ready 3D Automation proceeds to the final installation of the software on the machine and start the process; after the booting test has been completed with positive result, the project may be declared concluded.
Management of industrial robots for products handling and / or tending machine.3D Automation realized a project to perform the “LINE TRACKING” of a robot with four degrees of freedom in compliance with a conveyor. For this project has been fully developed calculation of profile “PATH PLANNER” with the language Codesys IEC61131-3.
In compliance with the chosen technologies and customer needs, 3D Automation implements the software by constantly keeping in contact with the customer to solve in real time any additional requirements or changes to the initial specifications.
Reconstruction with camera and laser triangulation of the X, Y and Z dimension of the scanned object. Objects’ dimension and shape test.Dimensional objects check. Barcode recognition. Writing recognition.
3D Automation has developed plants, machines and test systems that cover a wide variety of files in industrial automation, gaining extensive experience in these fields and technologies.
Using a Siemens PLC we realized a FAULT-TOLERANT plant, that was able to operate with failures of the management system (PLC), in order to ensure continuous operation of the plant, and made possible maintenance without stop the activity.
We realized a plant in one of the most famous Italian ports for loading / unloading containers from cargo on trucks and vice versa. This was made by using a PLC, a supervision PC in addition to WIFI antennas, in order to exchange data with a data collection system located at about 2 km.
3D Automation has made benches for testing mobile phone batteries. The test bench was composed of 40 CPU PC104 format, with an appropriate hardware designed by 3D Automation, to simulate the cycle of loading and unloading of the batteries, during normal operation. Via PC was possible to define the cycle of loading / unloading of the batteries and record its performance. The CPUs were connected via ethernet to the PC used as supervisor
Testing pumps, Speed limiter
We made test machines for the products of a renowned Dutch manufacturer factory. The products (used for automatic greasing of the suspension, automatic engine oil filler and the speed limitation according to the specific European standards), are installed on trucks and construction equipments owned by the most famous companies in the world such as Mercedes, Renault, Volvo, Daf, Caterpillar etc.We also realized the testing of an integrated system used by DHL and the German Post, to track packages – delivered and to be delivered – installed on vehicles.The test above mentioned must verify whether all the functions built into the device are working (send/receive SMS, telephone, barcode readers interface, parking sensors,cameras for visibility of the complete dimensions of the vehicle from the passenger compartment).
3D Automation collaborates with one of the most famous companies in Europe, for the development of software for managing their machines. These types of machines have a high degree of integration, complexity and use of high technology. The machines are sold all over the world to major food manufacturers.
We study and realize bidirectional links between production machinery and business project management systems, detect and analyze data aiming for a neat and exact management of the production flow, as requested by the regulations in force.
Gluing machine for shoe manufacturers
A conveyor belt leads the soles ( different for shape, height, color and size) to the entrance of the plant where, through a vision system with cameras and laser triangulation, the profile of the object is rebuilt. The glue spray takes place without stopping the flow of soles in transit and always orthogonal to the profile of the object and with constant distance.
Machine for grinding scissors
The software, developed on the PC platform, allows the user to graphically design the profile of scissors (of all types) or to build the desired profile by self-learning. The execution of these processes takes place in interpolated way and allows, thanks to the 6 degrees of freedom, to perform all the necessary operations to obtain the finished part from the the blank.
Creation software for managing machines and plants for industrial automation in various fields.
