Companies involved in robotics, renewable energy, telecommunications, biotechnology, medical equipment, mining, machine vision, aviation, and ground vehicles depend on mechatronics engineers. This multidisciplinary field combines specialized skills in mechanical, electrical/electronic, and software/ control engineering. Their unique capabilities in design, development, production, research, processing, testing, monitoring, and prototyping give them investigative versatility and dexterity in solving complex problems. Master Bond has placed a high priority in providing our technical expertise in adhesives, sealants, and coatings to help evaluate options and best serve end user needs. Our broad portfolio of products can be instrumental in optimizing assembly line efficiency, productivity, quality, reliability, and safety, working in close collaboration with mechatronics engineers.
Mechatronics engineering has been particularly beneficial in creating internet connected smart machines, equipment, and devices. Through the internet of things (IoT), embedded sensors are able to transmit data in real time to connected devices. Taking advantage of their ever evolving technology, mechatronics has played a significant role in building smart systems for home, automation, transportation, retail, healthcare, maritime and infrastructure applications through integration of multiple diverse components. Additionally, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) has been auspicious in the automotive, aerospace, medical device, and high tech manufacturing industries. Adoption of smart manufacturing has had an overwhelming effect on production through digitalization, enhanced operational performance, creating a safer working environment, cost reductions, error prevention, and superior forecasting/tracking adroitness.
Master Bond compounds have the potential of being utilized in the assembly of multiple innovative types of smart devices. Some novel examples are improvements in sizes, shapes, weight, configuration, and functionality created for home automation range from lighting, security, audio/video entertainment to heat, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Other examples include smart key chains, smart doorbells, smart phones, and wearable devices such as fitness trackers and smart watches. One should not underestimate the irreplaceable tasks of mechatronics in machine to machine devices and automation of manufacturing.
