Our Commitment to Quality
What is Mechatronics?
Mechatronics is a holistic discipline that covers mechanics, electronics, software, and the integration of all three into a system.
CNC and automation technology are a pinnacle of mechatronics, relying on each aspect to work in perfect unison for a successful result. As an oversimplified example, a CNC machine relies on an electronic drive to power its electronic motor, the motor’s rotational movement is turned into linear movement by the mechanical linear guideway which is driven by the rotation of the mechanical ballscrew. The signals going to the drive are determined by mathematical calculations by the the software which are processed by the electronic proecessor of the computer. Simultaneously, the software is looking at the screw mapping records to adjust its signals to account for mechanical imperfections in the ballscrew resulting in movements to an exact distance.
Now that you can see the process, it should be easy to see why a solution provider with mechatronic knowledge is an important resource. Many companies focus on one aspect of the chain; EPIK focuses on each, funnels the specialized knowledge our supplied component provides, and applies it to our customers in an easy to understand and implement system solution.
Beyond mechatronics, EPIK believes that an ROI based solution should also take into account the complete production process, the product’s design/development, and the technical training and support necessary to implement the solution. All of which is incorporated into the design of our mechatronic solutions and system support.
