Basics of Mechatronics Seminar Course Description

A unique program that combines the basic electrical and mechanical elements of motion control used in automation systems from both a top down and bottom up perspective. All stakeholders with minimal experience in this field will benefit from this two day hands on seminar.

Key Elements of Training

System Overview; Power Transmission Elements; Stepper Motors; Servo Motors; Feedback devices; Drives/Amplifiers; Communications; Programming; Motion Profiles

Who Should Attend

Individuals involved in any aspects of motion control as it applies to automation, who have minimal experience with it and want to gain a better overall knowledge in the field to make them more effective in the workplace.

Why You Should Attend

  • Design & Application Engineers (new to the field) – avoid costly design errors that come with a lack of overall experience, gain an appreciation for how all of the basic motion elements interact with each other, speed up the development process, be in a better position to specify the best components for the application.
  • Technical Salespeople – become more comfortable promoting the motion products that you represent, become an asset to your customer in helping them specify motion related components, get a better appreciation for the basic specifications of the components you represent, gain confidence in your ability to understand applications on a system level, not just the component level.
  • Maintenance Personnel, Engineering Technicians and Service Mechanics – learn what to focus on when troubleshooting motion systems.
  • Managers & Supervisors – gain a better overall appreciation for motion systems and its individual elements, better understand the challenges faced by your reports.
