3-D Design & Development

Our design team uses industry standard software that helps our end users visualize their concepts and bring to life what they would not see when designing in 2D.

PLC programming and HMI software development

PLC programming is the simplest and most efficient method of automating complex procedures and we use this to great effect.

Manufacturing & assembly

Our small team of highly skilled engineers carefully realise our solutions to produce hardwearing, aesthetically pleasing machines that will absorb all the rigours of high-volume use.

Vision system integration

Vision systems are fast becoming a critical part of all manufacturing and automation. From code-reader cameras, to optical safety systems we recognise their importance & are at the vanguard of this exciting technology.

Maintenance, support & aftersales care

We pride ourselves at interactive on our relationships with our customers and this can be seen through our history of repeat orders from our customer base. We pay particular attention to aftersales care and customer support. From Planned preventative maintenance visits to modification and continuous improvement.
