The Bharti School of Engineering at Sudbury’s Laurentian University now has a fully-equipped mechatronics, robotics and automation lab, thanks to a donation from HARD-LINE.

The Sudbury-based mining supply company had pledged $250,000 towards Laurentian’s mechatronics program back in 2018. Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science and engineering that blends mechanical, electrical, computer and software skills to work with smart technologies, such as robots, automated guided systems, and computer-integrated manufacturing equipment.

The school’s lab has now been been upgraded with new workstations, furnishings, and multimedia equipment, fulfilling that promise from four years ago.

“Working together with Laurentian University is an opportunity we value because it is the students that we invest in today that we will welcome into the workforce tomorrow,” says Walter Siggelkow, president of HARD-LINE.

HARD-LINE specializes in automation, teleoperation and remote-control technology.

Laurentian University serves over 8,000 students on its campus in Sudbury, Ontario, and is one of two bilingual universities in the province of Ontario.
