Workshop on Mechatronic design: success for the new edition in Turin

The traveling workshop “Mechatronics explained by the companies: present and future of industrial machines design”, by the Mechatronics Group of ANIE Automazione, was held on May 10th at Politecnico Torino. A mechatronic application is the result of a combination of different technological disciplines where mechanical, electrical, electronic systems and IT interact in order to increase production efficiency. During the planning phase this convergence of goals is not always respected and one of the difficulties that may arise is that of enhancing the mechatronics’ interdisciplinary nature.
The workshop declined this general concept in a series of speeches by the providers of mechatronic components and an OEM who uses basic technological solutions to build industrial machines. The aim was to illustrate to students the prevailing aspects of the design of a machine, part of an industrial production plant. The proceedings are available on the Association website (
