Laboratories : Past, Now and Future
Laboratories are a place where we can practice a theory we have been learn. I know about laboratories since I have been Junior High School (SMP), Senior High School, learn in polytechnic till now teach in polytechnic.
In The Past Time…
I was a student when I knew and entered a laboratory. I studied at SMP N 3 Purbalingga at that time. There are a wide laboratory beside canteen which functions as a biology, physics and sometime auditorium. Even though only a laboratory but there very tidy and clean. Every student listened and did carefully every step of practice, they’re also turn back the tools into a place they took it.
In a senior high school, it was in SMU N 1 Purbalingga there are also only one laboratory that used to practice about chemist, biology and physics. In this place we can take and washed every tool we used easily. I am used to drink a milk after followed a practice because the teachers gave instruction to prohibited many chemist thing involve my body.
>> PH (Pneumatics and Hydraulics) laboratory
PH is a laboratory to study a system with air pressure (pneumatics) and oil pressure (hydraulics). In this place students will learn in almost six months. Pneumatics usually aplicated in any industrial system that must faced a load less then 500 kilo grams. We used hydraulics when will be applied of load up to 500 kg. Hydraulics can be eassy find on a car washing system.
>> CNC laboratory
CNC is Computer Numeralize Control. It is a system of controlling machine by used computer. We usually use some code such as G-code, S-code and M-code to make a cylinder move on X, Y and Z axis. CNC have familiar machine that used in many factories right now. This machine will make us eassy by control a programe that will be do by amachine.
>> Robotic laboratory
It is a place to learn a robotic system. How we can move parts from a place into another. robot also can devided a part by detecting the colours they have. This arm robots can clap a pen and write or maybe draw a shape that we teached before by program on a hand controller or computer beside.
>> Electronic laboratory
It is PCB Mill machine which is used to make a layout of PCB. This machine will reduce many processes which actually needed to make a layout PCB. That means will reduce many time that also needed.
>> Automation laboratory
It is a laboratory that will learn about major industrial process such as, handling, konveyor etc.We also will learn integrated about PLC programe with all of process we have in.
