This article deals with the problem of joint representation of mechanical and motion control information of machines with servo axes. A new conceptual model is proposed for the graphical representation of industrial mechatronic systems covering the minimum information requirements from both mechanical and motion automation points of view. The model also takes into account new electronic motion control concepts such as virtual axes and temporary electronic coordination relationships between axes (e-gears). The objective is to support more integrated and collaborative work between mechanical designers and automation developers when implementing complex machines and industrial mechatronic systems. Schemes graphically representing the relevant common information are obtained from the information model, which may simplify the exchange of information between the mechanical and the motion control fields, not only at conceptualization and design stages, but also throughout the rest of the implementation process of industrial mechatronic systems.
