Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) comprise all technologies that significantly increase speed, decrease costs or materials consumption, and improve operating precision as well as environmental aspects. AMT enable an intelligent control of processes as well as automation for modelling and production which eventually brings down the costs associated with production and increases the quality of products.
Mechatronics unites the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to generate a simpler, more economical and reliable system. Due to its transversal impact on production processes of consumer goods, mechatronics becomes an innovation driver in many industrial sectors such as robotics, sensing and control systems, automotive engineering, diagnostic and reliability, mobile apps, etc.
The combination with automation technologies allow to performing increasingly complex manufacturing processes without manual intervention. The use of automatic production lines is growing in industries as well as in numerous daily-life sectors such as transportation, telecommunication, logistics and energy efficiency.
Mechantronics associated clusters:
Mechatronics can be found in many areas of the economy, research and qualification in the regions of Tyrol, South Tyrol and Treviso.
