In this episode of #therobotindustrypodcast we talk with Ehrhardt Automation's Lyle Weaver in the steps and parts needed to building an automation system. We start with talking about PLC, industrial IO and the HMI, human-machine interface, feeding equipment, end of arm tools (EOATs) and conveyors.
This is podcast #3 in a series on "How to Automate" and I wanted to thank Lyle for working with me to record the foundations of the building, specifying and purchasing an automated assembly system.
To get in touch with Ehrhardt Automation Systems or Lyle, they located in Granite City, Ill. The phone number is (314) 436-6900 and their email email@example.com
