Mechatronics

Mechatronics technicians build automated systems for industry. Mechatronics involves mechanics, electronics, and pneumatics and computer technology. The computer technology element covers information technology applications, programmable machine control systems, and technology which enable communication between machines, equipment and people.

Mechatronics combines skills in mechanics, pneumatics, electronically controlled systems, programming, and robotics and systems development. Mechatronics technicians design, build, maintain and repair automated equipment, and also program equipment control systems.

Outstanding mechatronics technicians are able to meet a variety of needs within industry. They carry out mechanical maintenance and equipment building. They also deal with equipment for information gathering, components (sensors) and regulating units. Mechatronics technicians install, set-up, repair and adjust machine components and manage equipment control systems, including their programming.

The more common and visible mechatronics appliances include shop tills (belt and cash register assemblies) and automated bottle machines.

Industrial applications include automated production and process lines that include assembly, packaging, filling, labelling and testing, as well as automated distribution and logistics systems.
