[A large number of manufacturing equipment exist for the implementation of basic discrete manufacturing processes into production machinery. Kalpakjian and Schmid provide a list of discrete manufacturing processes available under different categories of manufacturing, which are used in actual...
[Automation and control is the key element of morden manufacturing machinery. Its scope ranges from data transmission over parallel and serial interfaces as well as over local and wide area networks. Sensors, transducers and actuators are the objects of automation in open and close loop control...
[Sensors transducers and actuators are the essential elements of a control system. These objects play an important role in implementing the proxy virtual manufacturing organization through transfer of their current state over the local area network. Thus, permitting virtual manufacturing...
[The subject of manufacturing commenced when human altered the geometry of work pieces by rotating either a tool or a work piece to cut and to remove pieces of the material in the production of weapons as early as 700 B.C. It was not until the fifteenth century that the machining of metal begun.]
[The industrial manipulators, gantries and conveyors are essential part of an industrial environment. In order to develop a virtual manufacturing facility, the availability of augmented reality for such equipment is necessary. Following sections describe development of augmented reality for...
[Programmable logic controller (PLC) remained and important control element initially in automobile industry and later in almost all categories of the industries. PLC was basically designed to replace relay circuits in automobile industry. This chapter details design of augmented reality for the...
[A dedicated computer performing single or multiple functions in real time is known as embedded system. The embedded systems are used in variety of areas such as in aviation for autopilot of an airplane; in transportation systems for traffic control, and in manufacturing for machine tool control.]
