Breaking down the basics of what an electro mechanical assembly is may seem a bit unnecessary within the industries that depend on them. This, however, is the crux of the matter — there are no ‘specific’ industries that can be denoted as electro mechanically richer than others. In fact, as technology has advanced over the years, just about every facet of life has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of its complexity, the likes of which is almost always tied to electro mechanical assemblies doing a lot of heavy lifting.
Knowing what an electro mechanical assembly at its most basic is a crucial start to discussing its importance. There have been studies done for years about the criticism industries face when using jargon with their clients. The use of acronyms, as well as making reference to obscure codes & standards, all make it harder to ensure that client and manufacturer are all on the same page. However, other key studies have shown that misusing terminology can cause confusion even between industry personnel.
And so the original question remains — what is an electro mechanical assembly? In short, it is an assembly of some kind that has an electrical component, as well as a mechanical one. The two work in unison to complete a particular task. As simple as that definition is, it is important to note that these assemblies, even the ‘basic’ versions, are complex structures. They are designed and engineered to do a job that requires precision. A significant amount of detailed information needs to be provided to the mechanical structure so that it can work within a degree of exactness, not to mention accuracy.
Electro mechanical assemblies are available in a number of variations based on their task. The complexity and precision of their work will ultimately determine the number of parts in the final assembly, the likes of which can result in levels of pros and cons:

  • accessible levels of parts lists and manageable machinery parts blowouts make for easier updating, upgrading, and replacing
  • easier to manage tech allows for less of a learning curve when needing to make adjustments on the fly without specialization

  • overly complex parts blowouts make it necessary to contact manufacturers, dealers, and other intermediaries, adding to any downtime that may already be impacting production
  • because electro mechanical assemblies are aimed at completing their one task, it makes it easier to only address the efficiency of that one task and not think of ways productivity & changes in technology can be improved
    It can be argued that the responsibility for efficiency on the floor lies with the client. However, when a manufacturer of an electro mechanical assembly takes the time to factor in so many details PLUS also considers a client’s budget and project timetable, they have now solidified themselves as a partner with whom to work for the foreseeable future.
