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).

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
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.

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.
This two-day hands-on training class will familiarize you with the configuration software and
applications of the powerful Omron CP1H High-End Programmable Logic Controller. All attendees will
receive a workbook, an applicationslab manual and an operation manual. Upon completion of this
course, you will understand local and remote input/output, memory areas, configuring,special
functions and programming techniques. Students must bring a laptop.
