Powerful Automation Training for PLC, Electrical, Mechanical, and Pneumatic Applications!

Each Mechatronics station include a PLC control unit that features an AB1000 PLC, 10 inputs, 6 outputs, and much more! These stations also include curriculum that covers basic PLC programming and I/O training simulators with pushbuttons, selector switches, and output indicators so that learners can program and operate the PLC before moving actuators on the station.

Three Individual Stations Form One Mechatronics Line:

Outstanding Automation Curriculum

This system’s curriculum features an astounding breadth and depth of automation topics and skills. Key learning areas include: control system concepts, Mechatronics safety, programmable controllers, PLC programming language, PLC program analysis, motor control basics, program development, timer instructions, time-driven sequencing, and much more!

Expand Tabletop Mechatronics Teaching Capability by adding the Servo Robot Learning Station

Amatrol’s Tabletop Mechatronics Servo Robot Learning System proves that you can have all the features of a larger Mechatronics system with the space-saving footprint of a tabletop system. Wired into the Mechatronics system’s’ PLC, the 40-inch long, servo-controlled linear traverse provides the robot with full access to the automated line. As parts are sorted by the Mechatronics system and transferred to the appropriate conveyor chute, sensors read their presence and provide inputs to the system’s PLC.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. The combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

Mechatronics | Automation Systems

Modern industry utilizes complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products for an ever demanding world. Amatrol’s Mechatronics training programs teach systems-level thinking and industrial automation skill-building that prepares learners to for mechatronics operation, hands-on PLC programming, and industrial maintenance and problem solving for real-world manufacturing environments. With the proliferation of automation technology, mechatronics is one of the fastest growing technical education programs in the world. Many technologies are integrated to make these sophisticated production systems including mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software. In order to meet this vital industry demand, Amatrol has developed both a large scale mechatronics line and a portable, tabletop mechatronics training system, each with highly interactive eLearning mechatronics courses. Each of these systems is comprised of individual stations that can be purchased separately when mechatronics training is necessary but budgets must be observed or all together to form a total learning experience. This training experience can apply to various careers such as mechatronics engineer / technician, automation engineer / technician, and systems engineer / technician.
