Rockwell Automation launch their Mechatronics design portfolio

This week Rockwell Automation launched their Mechatronics design portfolio, offering improved optimization and collaboration software and hardware solutions to assist machinery design. Mechatronics is a collaborative venture between mechanical, electrical and control design engineers to optimise machine design. The Motion Analyser software from Rockwell interfaces with SolidWorks CAD, making it easier to select, size and optimise motion control systems, using a range of actuators, servo motors and electric cylinders particularly targeted at the packaging, medical and automotive markets (Link). In a review of the past year, the Rockwell PlantPAX process automation system was singled out as a success, achieving several notable contract wins when pitched against DCS vendors, particularly when providing a single control platform for discrete, batch, process, safety, drives and motion control. The Rockwell safety seminars have been particularly in demand, with over 400 people attending over the year.
