Modular Assembly System MAS-200

Build upon your mechatronics and automation studies with the MAS-200 Modular Assembly System from industry-leaders at SMC.

This hands-on training system emulates a real industrial assembly process, incorporating the major technologies required by today’s automated industry into one, compact system.

The complete system consists of five stations that work both independently and in unison to assemble a complete product with a metal base, bearing, shaft and lid.  The fifth station is located between the others and is responsible for transferring and assembling the parts; which can be done via a pneumatic assembly or robotic assembly.

The modular design of the equipment allows a vast range of options since the stations are completely autonomous, but can be assembled to form a complete manufacturing cell.
