Case Study: Increased Productivity in Medical Manufacturing

Direct Automation Case Study

Alex Strokosch of Direct Automation Systems, uses Weintek HMIs with Teknokol enclosures and Productivity PLCs in application for a medical manufacturer. The Teknokol system offers a solution that looks great, works, and has a really great price to performance ratio Alex, tell us a bit about yourself… I’m located in East Kilbride, just south of Glasgow.   I started my career as industrial electrician before moving to Scotland in the early 1980s after a stint in the Merchant Navy, and I’ve worked in electrical engineering for 41 years.  I had my own business from 1992 to 2001, then I worked for Continue reading Case Study: Increased Productivity in Medical Manufacturing

Case Study: DLE Engineering Ltd
