Abstract
This masters thesis presents a development of a software to analyse and evaluate a rotary
mechatronic demonstration rig. Most of the hardware existed and the task was to develop software in Excel and PLC Ladder to detect dierences between the different setups in a mechatronic system. The software is supposed to be used for educational purposes on Tetra Pak and should thereby be easy to use and give the user control over the necessary functions on the PLC.
With this software users should get a hands-on experience on how to configure and tune a mechatronic system. Also the user should have the opportunity to analyse data collected between different tests to see what has changed when changing the mechanics in the system.
A user has the... (More)
This masters thesis presents a development of a software to analyse and evaluate a rotary

The software is supposed to be used for educational purposes on Tetra Pak and should thereby be easy to use and give the user control over the necessary functions on the PLC.
With this software users should get a hands-on experience on how to configure and tune a mechatronic system. Also the user should have the opportunity to analyse data collected between different tests to see what has changed when changing the mechanics in the system.
A user has the option to change gearboxes, loads, couplings, shafts and the CAMprofiles the rig uses and save the data into an Excel workbook of choice. Once the values have been saved analyses can be done by different plots and frequency analysis and from here the user can make conclusions on the changes.
This report will explain the software and how to use it to detect differences between different setups and hopefully give a better understanding of mechatronic systems and how to adept them well.
The tests results presented in this report are just samples of what can be done with the software and how to use it.
I also would like to acknowledge all the help I have received from my mentor Thorbjörn Bengtsson at Tetra Pak, where he has been helping me out whenever I got stuck and keeping my work realistic when I was going crazy. (Less)
