Transcript of "FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEM"

  1. 1. Department of Mechanical Engineering “FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEM” By Anand Khare (5M1-23) Guided by BHUSHAN C. BISSA
  2. 2.  Introduction to FMS  History of FMS  Why FMS ?  Basic components of FMS  FMS equipment  Types of FMS  Layouts of FMS  Flexibility in FMS  Applications of FMS  Advantages  Disadvantage  Challenges with FMS  Conclusion  References
  3. 3.  A flexible manufacturing system is a automated machine cell, consisting of a group of processing workstations, interconnect ed with automated material handling and storage system. What is FMS ?
  4. 4.  The first FMS was patented in 1965 by Theo Williamson who made numerically controlled equipment. Examples of numerically controlled equipment are like a CNC lathes or mills which is called varying types of FMS.
  5. 5.  External changes such as change in product design and production system.  Optimizing the manufacturing cycle time  Reduced production costs  Overcoming internal changes like breakdowns etc.
  6. 6.  Workstations  Automated Material Handling and Storage systems  Computer Control System
  7. 7.  Substations 1. Load/Unload Stations 2. Machining Stations 3. Other processing stations 4. Assembly
  8. 8.  AGV

  11. 11.  Sequential FMS  Random FMS  Dedicated FMS  Engineered FMS
  12. 12.  Progressive or Line Type  Loop Type  Ladder Type  Open field type  Robot centered type
  13. 13. 1.Progressive Layout 2. Loop Layout
  14. 14. 3.Ladder Type Layout 4.Open Field Layout
  15. 15. 5. Robot Centered Layout
  16. 16.  Flexibility in manufacturing means the ability to deal with slightly or greatly mixed parts, to allow variation in parts assembly and variations in process sequence, change the production volume and change the design of certain product being manufactured.
  17. 17. • To be flexible, a manufacturing system must posses the following capabilities:  Identification of the different production units to perform the correct operation.  Quick changeover of operating instructions.  Quick changeover of physical setups of fixtures, tools and other working units.
  18. 18.  Metal-cutting machining  Metal forming  Assembly  Joining-welding (arc , spot), glueing  Surface treatment  Inspection  Testing
  19. 19. FMS at Vought Aircraft
  20. 20.  To reduce set up and queue times  Improve efficiency  Reduce time for product completion  Utilize human workers better  Improve product routing  Produce a variety of Items under one roof  Improve product quality  Serve a variety of vendors simultaneously  Produce more product more quickly
  21. 21.  Expensive.  Substantial pre-planning activity.
  22. 22. Processing of Gear 1 by Conventional Manufacturing System.
  23. 23. Processing of Gear 2 by Flexible Manufacturing System
  24. 24. The processing of Gear by FMS saves approximately 100 seconds per gear including pre & post processing adjustments. This means if number of gears to be produced increases this will save lot of time and increase productivity of the manufacturer. This will help in earning more profit. Hence FMS is more beneficial than conventional manufacturing system.
  25. 25.  Determining if FMS the best production system for your company  Possible expansion costs associated with implementing FMS
  26. 26.  FMS is a revolution in the field of Manufacturing Technology.  FMS can be designed to meet the specific demand of each company  FMS is used for multitask operation.  FMS requires substantial investment of time and resources.
