The source for inventive process solutions for key hardware design for robotic solutions, process analysis, or complex part handling tools.
You’ll notice immediately that there are no preconceived ideas on what solution or equipment is best when we’re asked to evaluate an application or manufacturing issue. Our approach is a very open-minded one. That’s one of the advantages in using an aXatronics
mechatronic engineer to lead the analysis. We’re not out to sell a specific solution, we’re interested in engineering the right one for your manufacturing process.
Then, we’ll jointly determine the best build path for the project, including the right technology partners for cost-efficiencies.
• Part Quality and/or Part Handling
• Operator Ergonomics
• Excess Waste Production
• Part Accuracy / Repeatability
• New Manufacturing Process
• Safety Issues
• Fool-Proof Processes are Needed
Many times, multiple issues are present.
Mechatronics is the summation, understanding and application of many different engineering disciplines including:
• Servo-/Stepper Systems
This depth of knowledge is only acquired through years of varied industry automation experience; staying current with today’s technology, and applying this knowledge successfully. Frequently, there are a multitude of variables surrounding any given manufacturing application.
A multi-disciplined mechatronics engineer provides solution options that others often cannot. The knowledge of many unique processes and applications has significant advantages when engineering processes. Most importantly, it often results in a solution no one else has yet envisioned! Clients are able to obtain a sound solution and value for their application.
A mechatronics engineered solution can be as simple as a Poka Yoke jig.
It can also be a vision-guided robotic work cell... or anything in between.
Sometimes, the end goal is not to replace people but to improve their efficiency and safety in the manufacturing environment. A hallmark of a good mechatronic solution is when a highly complex solution looks simple in the end. Without mechatronics input, a complex solution will often have the appearance of a patchwork of components (frequently
mis-applied) instead of a refined, on-target solution.
We bring this difference to our clients not only visually but also functionally. It helps ensure that the final outcomes are more reliable; easier to operate; and frequently requires less maintenance.
An aXatronics mechatronics solution is one that is geared precisely toward solving the problem(s) at hand by applying the right technology to create a viable, stable process.
Other Potential Advantages:
• Proven solutions can be adapted from
unrelated industries and utilized in
whole or in part to resolve
manufacturing issues without
needing to reinvent the wheel
• Difficult to find off-the-shelf
components can be a substantial
cost and time saver instead of using
• Sometimes, the most cost-effective
solution is not intuitively obvious
without mechatronics expertise
