Making the Machines Dance

‘Mechatronics’ was a name coined by Japanese engineer Tetsuro Mori 50 years ago, and trademarked in 1972. Today, most will understand it immediately as meaning ‘mechanical’ and ‘electronic’ activity combined – as in just about everything from hard drives to cars and coffee makers. Mechatronics is a vital part of manufacturing worldwide.


Working Smarter

A key goal of any successful manufacturing operation is a continual drive toward improving the efficiency of the manufacturing process. Traditionally, this has been accomplished through the adoption of lean production principles, waste reduction using the Six Sigma approach, and similar productivity solutions. These systems have been widely incorporated throughout the manufacturing industry and have significantly improved product quality, production speeds, and perhaps most importantly, the safety of those working in manufacturing plants.
