For around 20 years, Barr & Paatz has been instrumental is pioneering the use of robotics, electronic control technology and mechatronic design within UK industry. We are systems integrators for leading-edge manufacturers like Mitsubishi, Stäubli, Festo, Bosch and ABB, helping to explore practical applications for the latest technical innovations, and have been engaged on hundreds of diverse projects, from high speed, precision robot workcells in life sciences, to the design and small-scale production of helicopter flight simulators. Over the years, we have been at the vanguard of cutting-edge technologies, such as vision systems and electronic drives and controls, and have constantly faced fresh intellectual challenges, as we explored previously uncharted territory. Now that unique wealth of industry experience and technical know-how is at your disposal.
Our business aims centre on leveraging clients to achieve more efficient processes, to develop better, more technically sophisticated products, and to stay ahead of the market competition, through the strategic application of our innovative thinking and key technologies.
For enterprising and forward-thinking companies, both large and small, we can contribute meaningfully in a number of directions:
|A||utomation||– the application of robotics and control technology to manufacturing processes.|
|I||nnovation||– new product development through the use of mechanical, electrical and systems design.|
|M||anufacturing||– low volume, contract production of highly complex, high technology products.|
|S||upport||– technical back-up through workflow modelling, robot aftercare and software programming.|
If any or all of these specialist skill sets fall outside your current in-house resources or could be expediently outsourced to an external expert, then our AIMS will coincide with yours.
Although comparatively small in number, as befits an operation at the cutting edge, our multi-skilled workforce combines the disciplines of robot configuration, electronic and mechanical design, precision engineering, control technology, machine vision, solid modelling and PLC programming, enabling us to deliver high level, creative solutions. Whilst our individual specialisms are brought to bear on related projects, our multidisciplinary approach allows us to solve design, engineering and development challenges that are broader, deeper and ever more complex.
As global competition hots up, demand for increased quality and improved throughput increases, and flexibility becomes a vital part of any successful business, the potential market for our advanced skill sets will continue to expand. Inevitably, our applications experience has tended to centre on the ‘high tech’ industries, but we believe that the advantages of mechatronic systems and automated processes will soon filter through to smaller enterprises and traditional sectors, where an expert, contract resource like Barr & Paatz would prove economically viable.
Customer markets where our AIMS are already applicable, include:
