The ability to deal with slightly or greatly mixed parts,
To allow variation in parts assembly and variations in process sequence, change the production volume and change the design of certain product being manufacturing.
“Consists of a group of processing stations (usually CNC machines) ; interconnected by means of an automated handling and storage system and controlled by an integrated computer system.”
Capable of processing a variety of different types of job/part under NC program control at the various workstations so we can refer it as FMS
a) Machine flexibility
The ability to be changed to produce new product types, and ability to change the order of operations executed on a part.
b) Routing flexibility
The ability to use multiple machines to perform the
same operation on a part, as well as the system's
ability to absorb large-scale changes, such as in
volume, capacity, or capability.
CNC machine tools to perform machine operations on families part.
Material Handling Devices
Used to transport the work parts and subassemblies between the processing stations.
Used for loading and unloading raw materials and finished parts.
Auxiliary Equipments (Peralatantambahan)
FMS can include cleaning, automated measurement and inspection equipment.
Computer Control System
To co-ordinate the activities of the processing stations and material handling system.
Loading and unloading station
Material handling system

FMS Flanging machine is a totally hydraulic machine suitable for the flanging of bottoms of different thickness with or without central hole.
The machine is made up of a bottom holding trolley with vertical and horizontal movements, a forming roll on which the roll is presses to get the desired radius, a flanging roll which is used to adapt the bottom to the forming roll, guiding rolls which move on suitable guides which have the function to keep the bottom pressed against the forming roll.
BAMTRI has offered a large number of advanced manufacturing technologies and equipments for the development of new type aircraft, aero engines, and technical renovations to aircraft manufacturers.
An approach to product and process design that
utilizes the power of computer. It involves the
computer to create design drawings and product
