Integrating Technology

Mechatronics is the combining of mechanical systems, electronic systems, control systems and computers. HDT engineers utilize their mechatronic expertise to integrate modern microelectronics and software engineering into mechanical and electro-mechanical systems, producing some of our most sophisticated products.

HDT’s expertise in the area of mechatronics is evidenced in our capabilities with:

  • Electromechanical and hydraulic actuation
  • Power electronics
  • Motion control
  • Man/Machine interface
  • Cybernetics
  • Software and controls

HDT uses these capabilities to:

  • Design and develop industry leading micro-actuators with superior power to weight ratios, several times better than other available systems
  • Fabricate product chassis and frame components
  • Test products and validate their operation in extreme heat/humidity and/or frigid cold environmental conditions
  • Manufacture products with state-of-the-art design and operational efficiency in the environments where they are deployed
