    The machine described in this diploma thesis produces wooden pallet assembly parts consisting of one wooden plank and three wooden cubes. In the thesis we describe a control program for PLC to support automatic assembly of pallet parts. We also present a 3D simulator of the machine, which was prepared to reduce the number of possible problems related to commissioning and reducing the time of PLC program development. 3D simulator uses Unity game engine and EasyModbus library. The simulator was extensively used for testing and debugging during the development of program for Mitsubishi FX5U industrial PLC. We believe this approach considerably shortened the PLC programming as well as commissioning time.
