Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, chose to visit Sorion Electronics at the Made in the Midlands exhibition on Thursday 21st June. The Mayor met Paul Maisey, Business Manager and Kevin Dodson, Technical Sales Engineer to discuss how the company helps manufacturers improve efficiencies, reduce errors and remain competitive in the world of smart factories. During the visit Sorion demonstrated their latest parts kitting, end-to-end assembly and traceability solutions. Being a strong advocate of the advanced manufacturing sector, the Mayor showed a genuine enthusiasm for Sorion’s technologies. Mr Street said it was important that the region’s industries embraced digitalisation as the technology would increasingly begin to shape the way they would do business. Sorion engineers have over 27 years developed significant expertise in the assembly and test of automotive systems with equipment installed and operated by major OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers around the globe. They have been a pioneer in engineering the automation and exchange of data in manufacturing technologies through utilising, what is now commonly known as, Industry 4.0. Technology. Kevin Dodson said “Sorion’s equipment is trusted by high profile clients such as Bentley, Denso, Dyson, IAC, Jaguar Land Rover, Lear. Customers keep returning to Sorion for future projects, seeing clear benefits that are transforming their businesses”. The demands on today’s manufacturers are becoming increasingly complex, with flexible volumes and a growing variety of items produced on the same assembly line, making human error, delays and waste difficult to avoid. Sorion’s product portfolio (including Sextans Process Control & Testing application and Orion Quality & Traceability Reporting database) and their abundance of production experience make them uniquely prepared to help manufacturers make the vision of Smart Factory into reality.
