Experiment: Controlling Three Cylinders

In a stamping machine, raw pieces are fed in and clamped by cylinder M1, stamped by cylinder M2 then ejected by a third cylinder (M3). The machinery is switched on using switch S1.


The whole process is described by the displacement step diagram below.


Construct the pneumatic circuit shown below and create an appropriate circuit diagram for the control system using the circuit diagram editor (note: normally open switches B1.1, B2.1 and B3.1 are shown in the diagram in their activated positions). Click on the graphic to open it in a separate window.
