|The word Group Mechatronics was first coined by a senior engineer of a Japanese company Yaskawa, in 1969, as a combination of "mecha" of mechanisms and "tronics" of electronics and the company was granted the trademark rights on the word in 1971 [1-2]. The word soon received broad acceptance in industry and, in order to allow its free use, Yaskawa elected to abandon its rights on the word in 1982 . The word has taken a wider meaning since then and is now widely being used as a technical jargon to describe a philosophy in engineering technology, more than the technology itself. For this wider concept of mechatronics, a number of definitions has been proposed in the literature, differing in the particular characteristics that the definition is intended to emphasize.
The most commonly used one emphasizes synergy:
We at Group Mechatronics bring about this synergistic integration of mechanical engineering with electronics and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacture of CNC machinery and CNC Retrofits.
