What is Mechatronics? & How to be skilled in its different subjects?

MechatronicsTo explain what mechatronic engineering is, we can mention the definition proposed by J. A. Rietdijk: "Mechatronics is the synergetic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design of products and processes."

As it combines several engineering in one, its strength is its versatility. Versatility to create better products, processes or systems. Mechatronics is not a new concept, but the sum of certain areas of engineering.


This discipline has three main objectives: automate the equipment, create intelligent products and create harmony between mechanical and electronic components.


Mechatronics can be applied to many industrial fields, from medicine to mining, through the pharmaceutical industry, mechanical industry, automotive, textiles, food ... and many more.


Therefore, SMC International Training has a wide range of products to develop skills in these technologies related to mechatronics. Discover more information about the equipment that best suits your needs!

  • MAS-200 - Modular training system which emulates a real industry assembly process. Five completely autonomous stations that can be assembled to form a complete manufacturing cell.
  • FAS-200 - It is a flexible and compact assembly system which includes technologies from the automation industry. It is composed of up to 18 independent stations with integrated control.
  • IPC-200 - A complete training system in the field of Industrial Process Control. Closed loop control of pressure, flow, temperature and level.
  • ITS-200 - ITS-200 system provides professional training in industrial automation, more specifically in the field of state-of-the-art servo drive and sensor systems.
  • FMS-200 - Integral training in industrial automation. A fully modular and flexible equipment, made of industrial components. From a simple configuration with one station only (working fully autonomously) to a complex configuration with eight or ten stations, the possibilities are endless.
