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). Contact training@airlinehyd.com for more information.

PLCs for Industrial Maintenance Techs - NEW FOR 2018!

In this 5 day training, learn to 'read' and interpret programmable logic controller programs. 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. Learning to access the PLC program for the purpose of reading and interpreting PLC programs is not hard to do with proper training. 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. All of these knowledge 'points' are universally used in all PLC programs. The primary purpose of this training course is 'reading' and interpreting a PLC program for efficient troubleshooting of a machine or process. Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 12 students. Click here for detailed topical outline.


Major topics include:

  • Why PLC programs are structured the way they are
  • Ladder logic
  • Interfacing vs. inverting inputs
  • Importance of program documentation
  • Comparing pressure, magnitude velocity, position, temperature etc. to stored ‘set points’
  • Motor control with PLCs
  • Up counters and down counters

PREREQUISITE: Exposure to or working with industrial machinery or processes and working in industrial equipment maintenance.

Basic PLC Programming and Troubleshooting (E2)

Designed for the beginner with no previous experience, this class will cover basic programming steps, advanced functions and the student will gain insight into the cause and effect of machines being controlled by PLCs. Whether you wish to replace hard-wired relay and timer systems, or you require shift registers, math functions and data manipulation, you will benefit from this course. You will get hands-on programming experience with the Omron CP1 programmable controller, a high powered PLC in a small package. Students will program utilizing Omron CX Programmersoftware. The second day, which is optional, will be an application workshop providing the student with an opportunity to work on real-world PLC programming problems. Students must bring a laptop.


Major topics include:

  • Basic functions
  • Introduction to hardware
  • Number systems
  • Hardware configuration
  • Special functions
  • Basic logic
  • Advanced functions
  • Input/output interfacing
  • NPN vs. PNP
  • Troubleshooting techniques
  • Program modification and monitoring
