According to an IBM report into cyber security, manufacturing is the 2nd most hacked industry, second only to healthcare. This may come as a surprise; after all, it is easy to assume that the financial sector takes the biggest hit from cyber-attacks. While this might have been true a few years ago, since 2014, they have heavily invested in cyber security, leaving hackers at a loose end.
The manufacturing industry is currently moving at speed into the digital age and adopting Industry 4.0 practices. Despite this revolution, the investment in cyber-security hasn’t kept up resulting in potentially vulnerable systems.

GB Innomech have experience in producing systems ranging from bench top measuring devices to fully automated medical device assembly and End Of Line Testing (EOLT) machines enjoying repeat custom from many of the most respected medical device manufacturers, as well as many early stage technology businesses looking to bring first products to market.
Innomech has designed and developed a new semi-automated workstation to help a major UK-based manufacturer – and another local Ely-based business – to improve the manufacturing efficiency for one of its leading ranges of high precision industrial sensors.
The new system will allow Michell Instruments to shorten production timescales, further improve product quality, and to increase its capacity to meet fast-growing international demand for its Easidew dew point sensors, particularly from the US and major European markets. Easidew sensors are routinely used for moisture measurement in gases and liquids across a broad range of sectors including industrial processing, medical gases, and compressed natural gas fuelling stations.

GB Innomech and FCS Automation (FCS) have agreed to work together to offer medical device manufacturing companies a more integrated approach to robotics and automation. The new partnership will help companies looking to improve the efficiency, reliability, capacity or other key aspects of their production lines, to comply with new regulations or to integrate new functions.
Automation consultancy Innomech and FCS, a specialist in PLC control systems plan to pool their complementary skills for targeted new business opportunities and to build on the success of a large-scale project that they recently completed for one of the world’s largest medical equipment manufacturers.
