Modular Machine Design
The emergence of mechatronics is leading to considerable changes in the way machinery is being designed. Central to this change is the adoption of modular (systems-based) methods of machine construction. The benefits include, shortening machine design time, improved machine reliability reduced construction costs and simplifying service/repair. Furthermore, modular (mechatronic) machine construction is increasingly becoming an important means of meeting the large and growing market for low cost flexible manufacturing automation.
Our Modular Machine design currently concerned with developing designs using 'off-the shelf' mechatronic technology (eg. drive systems, transmissions, actuators etc).
