mecatronYx is a research centre that joins professors from different specialties who are passionate about the field of mechatronics. They come from different Institutes such as COMATEC (Institute of Design, Materials, Packing and Packaging), iAi (Institute for Industrial Automation) and IIDE (Interdisciplinary Institute for Business Development).
Through their multidisciplinary collaboration, they analyse, imagine, design and implement innovative solutions for demanding applications of the future.
For example, to improve the surface finish quality or speed of a tooling machine, specialists in mechanical structures start carrying out a vibration analysis to identify defects of the dynamic behavior of the machine frame.
Active since 2013, the Group has already completed more than a dozen technology transfer projects with a budget of around 2 million Swiss francs.
