In company ETI Elektroelement, d. d., program unit technical ceramics steatit, the need for a new stacking device has shown.
In first step the route of pieces had to be predicted. Next the working space needed for stacking, cleaning and overall size of device was rated. Designing of device was done using PTC Creo software. Components and materials had to be chosen. In great help were experiences from other similar devices, which made choosing the right components easier. After main frame was built and support plate was added, pneumatic components were installed according to pneumatic scheme made with Festo FluidDraw software. Also sensors, switches along with electrical cabinet were installed. Electrical scheme was made using Altium Designer software. For PLC controller a user program was written with TIA Portal software.
During operation in production hall a shortcoming has been noticed and was eliminated with small improvement of the device. After improvement burr that was previously leftover on edges was removed successfully.
In diploma thesis process of device construction and working principle as well as manufacturing process where device appears in are described.
