In a fairly short time span, industry has made a transition from largely manual manufacturing methods to some very sophisticated automated procedures which often require very little human intervention. Recent developments in such areas as solid-state electronics, microminiaturization, computers, microprocessors, programmable controllers and robotics have had a huge impact on industrial technicians and engineers. This book was written to serve as a guide to today’s new devices and automated systems, taking the reader step by step through each component and sub-system, and leading to a level of understanding sufficient to facilitate the management of overall system operation, and assessment and correction of malfunctions when they occur.
