Industrial Careers

About the Career

The days of labor-intensive manufacturing have passed. Modern manufacturing environments are highly automated and employ sophisticated systems to increase production, lower costs and improve quality. In these environments, production line downtime can cost thousands of dollars per hour in lost productivity and missed production deadlines. For the manufacturer to remain viable, it is imperative that their lines remain operating at peak efficiency. Mechatronics technicians keep the production lines functioning at the highest capacity.

Modern manufacturing lines have taken full advantage of automation technologies to lower costs, increase production and improve quality control. They employ extensive use of robotics, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), hydraulic/pneumatic systems, and sophisticated electrical systems. Mechatronics technicians have a good grasp of these complex systems, allowing them to perform critical maintenance and repairs.
