Abstract: Automation is one of the growing fields ,and is being used at levels from small scale industries to very a large scale industries due to the advantage of increase in productivity and quality, along with it recently new revolution in the automation 4.0enabling the data monitoring possible which helps in better control and monitoring of machineries and equipments. The objective of the work is to design electrical circuit and perform suitable control actions such as loading and unloading of heavier components to machines, indexing, providing suitable safety for the devices and improvising productivity and quality rate in the production line. These activities are being done by a control system adopted to gantry system, in such control systems there will be provision for manual control, auto mode, jog mode & edit mode to enable the work to be carried out smoothly and effectively. Such complete system is designed to reach the customer required production cycle time with 6 axis (y,z1,z2,x1,x2,c), these axis are controlled by CNC controller and all other Stations like IPC, OPC, tilting stations are controlled by the PMC controller, which is the part of CNC.
