1 Introducing the Mechatronics Club Promoted by Reggio Emilia Industrial Association (part of Confindustria, General Confederation of Italian Industry) Aimone Storchi – President (Davide Bezzecchi, secretary) October 2012

2 Agenda 1. Who we are: Association of Entrepreneurs of Reggio Emilia Associazione Industriali di Reggio Emilia –Confindustria and Mechatronics Club (Club Meccatronica) 2. Promoting Mechatronics as a fast growing market 3. The mechatronics cluster of Reggio Emilia 4. Club Meccatronica of Reggio Emilia 5. Profiles of the Club Meccatronica members (seeannex)

3 1.About us: 1.About us: the Association of Entrepreneurs of Reggio Emilia Associazione Industriali di Reggio Emilia represents approximately 750 manufacturing and service enterprises based in the province of Reggio Emilia (amounting to employees). Founded in 1945, Industriali Reggio Emilia is a voluntary association of companies which aims to represent, protect, promote and develop member companies and their interests. It is the expression in the territory of Reggio Emilia of the Association ofConfindustria (the Association of the Italian Entrepreneurs). It brings together various sectors, from electrical to mechanical (machines and equipment), food, textile, ceramic tiles, rubber and plastic, construction and real estate, services. The associated enterprises are mostly small and medium size enterprises (75% of them have from 1 to 50 employees). ServicesIndustriali Reggio Emilia to its associated firms offers Services: The Association promoted in the 2004 the Club of Meccatronica.

4 Reggio Emilias Province Half milion of inhabitants low unemployment rate 5.0% (before crisis 2.5%) Workforce = unit ( in industries) With over 58,000 enterprises (one every nine inhabitants) the province demonstrates a formidable entrepreneurial attitude. high per capita income = /inhabitant (during 2009) Export = Ml (first quarter 10) (+11% referred to first quarter 10)

5 2.Why promote Mechatronics for the growth of the manufacturing companies? The Mechatronics as the combination of electronics, mechanics, automatism and embedded software, is actually a fast growing market and concerns more and more industries in their different technological evolution. Different technologies and manufacturing sectors involved specialized industry in products with high added value

6 The Mechatronic Product Target Development of INTELLIGENT MACHINE 1. High performance in every condition 2. Energy saving 3. High safety for the operator Obtained by programming technologies The device control is managed by an electronic component typically embedded in the product itself. Control means the ability to adapt to the different operating conditions.

7 The Mechatronic Product What mechatronics is MECHATRONICS = MECHANICS + ELECTRONICS + SOFTWARE MECHATRONICS Mechanics machines fluid dynamics trasmissions materials Information Technology modelling systems theory artificial intelligence Electronics power control actuators sensors
