Questions and Answers

What might a control system for an automatic drilling machine be required to do?

Start lowering the drill when the workpiece is in position, start drilling when the drill reaches the workpiece, stop drilling when the drill has produced the required depth of hole, retract the drill, and then switch off and wait for the next workpiece

What could be the inputs to control systems like the one used for the automatic drilling machine?

Switches being closed or opened, such as the presence of the workpiece indicated by it moving against a switch and closing it
