Today’s industries rely on highly complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products. To effectively operate, program, and problem solve in this complex environment requires comprehensive mechatronics knowledge, which includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, control engineering and computer engineering.With the rapid proliferation of automation technology, mechatronics has become one of the fastest growing technical education programs in the world.

E-motion involved in mechatronic education equipment development as early as 1998. We design and built the very first Mechatronics Learning System for Tsinghua University. Today, with decade of experience in the development, production, and application of mechatronic education equipment, our EM-300, EM-350, and EM-400 Learning Systems are widely used by various colleges and research institutes.

The Ideal Mechatronic Learning System

Through the past years, E-Motion has trained over a thousand of undergraduate and graduate students, and technical personals from different industries. With the deep understanding of students and education system, we developed the ideal Mechatronic Learning System to help students achieve job-ready qualifications. Our EM Series Mechatronics Learning System allows students to fully understand and master the basic concepts, principles and methodology of mechatronic through hands-on experiments;  teaches students a broad array of job-ready skills in integrating technologies, such as analysis, controlling software development, the characteristic and features of various motor control modes and controlling motors of the whole system; system PID tuning; acceleration feed-forward and application, system error analysis and compensation, and system fault diagnosis and analysis. And the EM Series Mechatronics Learning System can also be used for the realization and features of different movement designs, and the simulation training for different applications such as CNC machine tools, robots, coordinate measuring machines, cutting and welding, PCB drilling, semiconductor dicing, embroidery machine, etc.

EM Series buildable stations make up a complete flexible manufacturing system. Students can design compositions of all mechatronic systems using different mechanical body, human-machine interface (control platform), the control section, driving section, transmission parts, mechanical actuators, detection and feedback, safety section, interference and noise processing section, and communication part. Each station is a small mechatronics system in itself with multiple, integrated technologies that can be used stand-alone or in various combinations, creating unlimited project capability. The EM Series Learning System can be built big or small, enabling it to fit into almost any teaching facility.
