Presently, the demand for automobiles is
increasing and the automotive parts have to be produced
proportionately. Automotive industries are therefore
determined to meet the customer demands i.e. to attain a
greater product quality and to increase the production
rates. Automation solution is provided to these
manufacturing industries. Automated manufacturing
systems use computers and computer related technologies
that are capable of operating without human intervention.
This paper presents the electrical design and development
of gantry automated system by implementing PLC and
CNC. Electrical circuit design, PLC and NC programs
are explained for the compressor housing manufacturing
line. Testing and tryout is carried out for different part
