We stock automation spares for the automotive industry.
Since 1913, production lines have been an essential part of car manufacturing. Technology has come a long way, and now automation is crucial for keeping those lines working effectively.
SenseEye reported that each hour of downtime cost the automotive industry over £1.6 million last year. That's much more than in many other sectors and over 50% more than in 2019/20.
The automotive industry is changing fast, with EVs, smartphone integration and autonomous vehicles becoming more popular. Having said that, production lines are often used for a long time. Some lines run 24/7 to cope with demand, and some function in harsh environments like paint shops; therefore, wear and tear is inevitable.
It can be more efficient to change parts than replace equipment or an entire line — particularly if there's a strategy of total preventative maintenance in place. That's why it's so important to have a reliable supplier of automotive automation parts and to keep track of equipment obsolescence.
However, regardless of criticality, having the correct part in stock isn't always so simple.
Moreover, we offer a 12-month warranty on all parts and express shipping and trade terms are available to expedite our processes further whilst minimising your downtime.
