Mechatronics

Mechatronics is the big-strange word that covers so much. The marriage of mechanical, electrical, computer and software skills in order to work with smart technologies, TOOLKIT prepares students for various career pathways within the ever-changing landscape of Mechatronics.

Students learn integrated systems that combine electrical technologies with mechanical technologies and computer programming for real-world skills that directly relate to modern jobs in manufacturing and automation.

Mechatronics sits at the intersection of mechanics, electronics, and computing, and is built on the idea of creating simpler and smarter systems. Toolkit provides the training systems that empower mechatronics technicians and specialists with the skill sets to thrive in contemporary, advanced automated manufacturing industries.

Electro-mechanical technologists and technicians combine knowledge of mechanical technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuitry. They operate, test, and maintain unmanned, automated, robotic, and/or electromechanical equipment.

Electro-mechanical and mechatronics technologists and technicians typically do the following:

  • Read blueprints, schematics, and diagrams to determine the method and sequence of assembly of a machine or a piece of equipment
  • Verify dimensions of parts, using precision measuring instruments
  • Operate metalworking machines to make housings, fittings, and fixtures
  • Inspect parts for surface defects
  • Repair and calibrate hydraulic and pneumatic assemblies
  • Use instruments to test the performance of electromechanical assemblies
  • Use soldering equipment and hand tools to install electronic parts and hardware
  • Operate, test, or maintain robotic equipment
  • Analyze and record test results

They install, maintain, and repair automated machinery and computer-controlled mechanical systems in industrial settings, and also test, operate, and/or maintain robotic equipment at worksites. This equipment may include unmanned submarines, aircraft, or similar types of equipment for uses that include oil drilling, deep-ocean exploration, or hazardous-waste removal.

They average pay for someone with these skills is over $61,040.00.

  • Part Feeding and Detecting Training System – MAP-201

    SMC’s MAP-200s consist of a series of individual tabletop mechatronics training systems that carry out a specific and different material handling task commonly seen in industrial settings.

    Robust, Rugged, and Versatile, these tabletop hands-on training systems are designed to teach students a wide array of industrial automation – Pneumatics, Electrical, Industrial Safety and Automation Processes, PLC Programming, Sensors, and Troubleshooting!

    MAP-201: Body Supply Part Feeder + Detector/Ejector

    The process: A gravity feeder houses the parts in a column. Each part has a non-symmetrical interior housing and is ejected by a pneumatic cylinder. The correct orientation of the part is verified using a cylinder with a plunger. After verification, an oval section pneumatic cylinder moves the work-piece to the final position. Otherwise, a single acting cylinder removes the part via the evacuation ramp.
