Mechatronics: Top 5 electrical considerations for mechanical engineers

Download Now


Mechanical and electrical engineers often overlook important issues when specifying their respective parts of an electromechanical system. Consider these five targeted pieces of advice for mechanical engineers responsible for electromechanical systems, as provided by an electrical engineer:

  • Directly couple the motor to the load
  • Use electronic gearing and camming
  • Create a clean design
  • Incorporate energy-efficient technology
  • Use actual HMIs for better troubleshooting

Read this paper to better simplify mechanical design challenges and create cleaner designs using sound structural principles and a strong frame.
