Automation Training Automation Training

Airline’s automation training classes are designed to provide students with the knowledge and experience required to meet the demands of today’s technological workplace. By empowering employees with the crucial knowledge necessary to maintain competitiveness in the marketplace, the return on investment is immediate. Our instructors have over 20 years of factory automation experience, making the learning experience tangible through application examples and hands-on training. Our classes are normally taught at Airline’s facilities, but arrangements can be made with our training group to have standard or specially designed courses held at your facility. Individual course descriptions follow. Regularly scheduled classes include Basic PLC Programming and Troubleshooting (E2) and Advanced PLC Programming (E4). In addition, Airline offers the following classes upon request: Sensor Workshop (E1), Introduction to Operator Interface Programming (E5), Stepper and Servo Motor Basics (E6), DeviceNet Training (E7), Industrial Networking (E8) and Oriental Motor Indexer Training (E11).

Programmable Logic Controllers

Can you 'read' and interpret programmable Logic Controller programs? Do you know that the easiest and fastest way to troubleshoot a line down or equipment down situation is by looking at the PLC program? The use of PLC's in manufacturing facilities is virtually universal. And, learning to access the PLC program for the purpose of reading and interpreting PLC programs is not hard to do with proper training. You don't need to be an electrician either! Learn about input conditioning, analog inputs and outputs that show numerical data like pressure, temperature, level, vacuum, distance and speed. Learn where the numerical data is hidden and how to interpret it. Learn about the use of on delay, off delay and on/off delay functions for proper line and conveyor control. Learn to use counters, LIFO and FIFO stack control. Learn to interpret various math functions and how to 'scale' numerical data. Learn to use logical comparisons with numerical data. Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 14 students.Click here for detailed description.
