Tittle:
Collaborative automation and robotic technologies and solutions to cost effectively improve manufacturing processes, capabilities and capacities.
Summary:
A UK based SME specialised in automation systems and in particular with the use of robotics, is seeking small to medium sized manufacturing companies who want to collaborate to improve their existing processes, or to work together to increase their capabilities and capacity in a more cost effective way under commercial agreements with technical assistance and/or services agreements.
Description:
A UK control and installation SME with a strong bias towards automation with the use of robotics is offering bespoke automation technologies and solutions for small to medium manufacturing companies seeking to cost effectively improve existing processes and expand capabilities.

The company believes that automation in any aspect doesn´t have to be complicated or expensive, and is equally as appropriate for small to medium manufacturers as it is for large multinational organisations. They are interested in looking at how they can improve a manufacturer´s productivity, as well as quality by using automation. Their range of expertise and technology ensures that part automation through to fully automated systems can be designed and implemented according to specific requirements and budgets, which will give manufacturers the edge in an ever increasing competitive world.

Knowing that the biggest issue small manufacturing companies face with automation is often the initial investment, the company can utilise refurbished equipment where appropriate to minimise the initial investment, thus making automation more affordable for such companies.

Although being a relatively new company, the founders bring over 16 years of manufacturing automated process knowledge and experience with demonstrable results across a range of industry sectors. With experience in programmable logic controllers (PLC), human machine interfaces (HMI), robotics, and electrical and mechanical systems, the company can offer a wide range of skills, services and technologies to suit all customers, be it new installations or pre-existing upgrades or modifications. They are also able to provide a full range of ongoing support services including installation, training, breakdown support and future planned upgrades.

Small to medium manufacturing companies who are looking to solve particular problems within their existing manufacturing processes, or seeking ways to increase capabilities and capacity in a more cost effective way are sought. Collaborative technical solutions and knowledge transfer are envisaged under commercial agreements with technical assistance, with ongoing maintenance via services agreements also possible.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Work with new processes as well as modifying existing systems.
- Wide range of diverse skills in many automation sectors such as HMI, PLC, and robotics.
- Strong knowledge of the robotic technologies both on the market and older models that are no longer sold.
- Can utilise refurbished equipment to keep initial costs down where appropriate.
- Cell builds for automation processes using robots or PLCs including cell concept and design to the manufacturing of tools and complete process.
- Integration of current and existing cells, including upgrading robots or PLCs to newer versions or adding more robots or PLCs to existing lines to improve process or cycle times.
- Supporting application knowledge including sealant, MIG (metal inert gas) welding, spot welding and material handling.
- Work to customers´ standards and specifications if available, or collaborate with customers to develop a standard if one is not in place.
- Provide breakdown support for a multitude of robots and processes; this could be current or obsolete robots or PLCs.
- Training can be provided in-house or at the customer´s premises, on processes or robotics.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company are looking for any small to medium manufacturing company who could benefit from automation and are willing to collaborate to cost effectively improve their existing processes, increase their capabilities and/or enhance their capacity. The company would work closely with such organisations to develop technical solutions that meet their needs, install and commission them within their premises, and transfer technical knowhow to enable full operational capability.

Suitable companies could have automation already and are looking to bring in more automation or upgrade their existing systems. Also companies who do not yet use automation but would like to look at the advantages of cost and time efficiency which automation could bring them would also be appropriate, including those who may not be able to afford the initial investment. The company can utilise refurbished equipment to keep initial costs down and make automation more affordable to such smaller manufacturing companies who would normally overlook it.

Commercial agreements with technical assistance are envisaged for these activities, and services agreements for ongoing maintenance will also be available where applicable. Other types of partnership agreement will also be considered by request.
