Benefits of digital initiatives for lab, test & measurement companies | 13 July 2021

THIS IN-DEPTH, two hour webinar will give a case-study driven explanation of how lab and test and measurement companies can benefit from digitalising.

Designed specifically for the senior management of SMEs in GAMBICA’s lab and test and measurement sectors, it will provide an overview of why taking steps to digitalise your business is essential and will detail the benefits you can expect to achieve. It will explain how you can identify suitable projects which will yield a real return on investment and will offer case studies which are not only inspirational, but are fully costed, giving you the chance to evaluate those that might be applicable to your own operations.



Welcome - Ken MacLachlan, Thermo Fisher

Digitalisation without the fluff: Steve Brambley, CE of GAMBICA, sets out why digitalisation is important, what it can yield for your company and will look at some of the macro factors which make engaging with these new technologies essential.

Shortcuts to inspiration: This presentation will explain how you can identify any sub-optimal aspects of your operations by use of simple monitoring. It will set out the costs of these initial inquiries and how they can be achieved without impacting on your day-to-day operations. Examples will be provided to illustrate how to understand what your new data is telling you.

One sensor – 15% savings: Steven Atkey, Motortronics: In the first case study of the morning, Steven will show delegates how a sensor/soft starter installed at New Form Tools/ Blanchard Grinders not only prevented unplanned downtime, it reduced energy consumption by up to 15%. This case study demonstrates how low-cost interventions can save you time and money.

Digitalisation for your products: This case study will feature machine monitoring which allows you to remotely commission, monitor and maintain your equipment. The value of such systems has been amply proven during lockdown and this case study will not only set out how such systems can be incorporated in your products and give you an idea of the likely costs of installing them, but will explain how you can handle the data you get back without needing additional staff or a data analysis services.

Automation to reduce chemical use: Automation projects have been instrumental in reducing use of energy, water, raw materials and plastic and can form an important part of your journey to net zero. This case study will explain how certain sensors, integrated using the right PLC, allowed a train track to be kept free of weeds while eliminating the use of glyphosate.
