Bytronic becomes first UK integrator to achieve Cognex Logistics Partner Integrator status

Bytronic Vision Intelligence has become the first company in the UK to be granted Logistics Partner Integrator (LPI) status by Cognex - the world’s leading provider of vision systems, software, sensors, and industrial barcode readers used in manufacturing automation.

The accolade - an industry first for the UK - was given to Bytronic for its team’s expertise in automation and machine vision and positions the firm as the nation’s leading integrator of vision technology.

After intensive training on-site and in the classroom, five members of the Bytronic team are now ‘C1’ qualified under the Cognex LPI programme, with all of them now working towards the higher-level ‘C2’ status later this year.

Martin Hurworth, CEO of Bytronic, said: “Securing the status of the UK’s first-ever LPI Partner cements our position as the industry experts in logistics. By being the first national firm to complete this specialist training, we’re making sure our team is leading the way and developing their passion for logistics integration. We have high aspirations to be the highest trained, most experienced and best skilled team in Europe, and this puts us one step closer.”

Bytronic - which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year - has provided automated inspection solutions for customers such as AB InBev, Unilever, Jaguar Land Rover and Procter & Gamble.

As an LPI partner, Bytronic can now help more companies find the right automation solutions to overcome labour shortages, energy price rises, supply chain pressures and other big challenges facing industry right now.

In the coming months, Bytronic will be trialling its new ProfileInspect solution for rapid response inspections, as well as the latest Cognex In-Sight 2800 deep learning vision system on-site for customers in an effort to drive down the cost of inspection.

Gavin Noble, Field Services Manager (Europe) at Cognex Corporation said: 

“The LPI programme connects Cognex to our partner network like never before. It combines online, classroom and onsite training and mentorship to cover all of the specialisms and expertise that logistics customers demand. The syllabus covers product technology, system design, logistics tunnels and more.

“There was already that good relationship there, and the pandemic made it stronger, with Bytronic helping out massively when access to travel was limited. The Bytronic team is easy to work with, really keen and quick with new ideas.”

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”
