The main objective of this workshop is to make aspiring engineers acquainted with the conceptual as well as practical knowledge of Industrial Automation & of the latest technologies being used to achieve Industrial Automation. Industrial Automation i.e. to "Automate Industry" is the basic need of almost every type of manufacturing and production unit today. Food/ Beverage, Metal, Mining, Power, Textile, Petrochemical, Machine Manufacturing, Automobile etc are the few examples where we see the automation today. PLCs along with certain other necessary ingredients like sensors, motors, actuators, valves, conveyors, boilers, SCADA systems, computers & many more, make a real automated manufacturing plant. Participants will perform hands on PLC training Kit. By the end of this workshop the participants will become aware about the basic knowledge of Industrial Automation, PLCs and their relevant modules. The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days with eight hours session each day, in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hand on practical sessions.
