TII offers three levels of CIM systems designed to fit your needs and budget. From Tabletop CIM to Mini CIM to full CIM systems featuring overhead gantry robots. These teaching systems emphasize manufacturing's progression into high technology.
Best of all, the industrial grade components used in all CIM systems are durable enough to withstand continuous use...and friendly enough to build the trainee's confidence.
Curriculum and exercises cover the basic concepts of each component and then move into system integration and operation.
A complete, mobile computer integrated manufacturing system for teaching the fundamentals of automation.
Curriculum topics include:
How pneumatic components work together in a pick-and-place robot application
How to create, edit, run and monitor robot programs using the teach pendant or menu driven software program
How to operate an industrial PLC
How to program a CNC mill
How sensing devices are used in automated manufacturing
How to integrate all of these individual processes together to develop a true Computer Integrated Manufacturing Enterprise

The FMS-800 Flexible Manufacturing System is part of TII’s series of comprehensive
manufacturing automation training systems that can be customized to customer requirements. System “flexibility” is built into the FMS-800 design. As learning objectives change over time, so too can the FMS-800 System hardware, software, and configuration.
The FMS-800 System consists of three interconnected mobile tables. Each table can be used as a separate standalone process or integrated into a dynamic three-table multi-stepped comprehensive process. Tables are connected physically and via Ethernet communications. System control is done with a single master PLC with remote I/O at each table for distributed control over Ethernet communications. Alternatively, a dedicated PLC at each table is used for local control with inter-communications among the three tables via Ethernet. Note: individual
table PLCs would require Ethernet capability.
The three mobile tables are designed to replicate a manufacturing process:
Table One is a conveying process with an electro-pneumatic parts carrier feeder located at one end of the conveyor used for dispensing part carriers (pallets) on to the conveyor. Parts are then conveyed to the opposite end of the conveyor where a second electro-pneumatic feeder dispenses/ assembles parts to the pallets. Conveyor speed and directional control is done via a Variable Frequency Drive control system. A PLC or remote I/O dedicated to Table One activities is used to control the process and I/O communications at Table One.
Table Two is an electro-pneumatic robotic material handling process. Whereby the robot interacts with the parts feeding process of Table One by making sure parts are properly placed and oriented into the pallets. The robot than transfers the pallet with part to the conveyor located on Table Three. A PLC or remote I/O dedicated to Table Two activities is used to control the process and I/O communications at Table Two.
Table Three is a conveying process with electro-pneumatic sorting of parts being conveyed. There are three sorting stations attached to the conveyor system. Each sorting station is programmed to discern specific part characteristics. Based upon this determination, parts are pushed off of the conveyor into a storage tray. Conveyor speed and directional control is done via a Variable Frequency Drive control system. A PLC or remote I/O dedicated to Table Three activities is used to control the process and I/O communications at Table Three.
Each dedicated PLC or remote I/O has Ethernet capability which allows inter-table
