Bytronic Vision Intelligence has strengthened its UK team with the appointment of expert vision engineer Iain Clowery.

Iain joins UK-based Bytronic as technical manager specialising in vision and ID after a career in vision engineering spanning almost 30 years.

During two decades at the global machine vision supplier Cognex he helped develop the software that powers the cameras and imaging software now used by many of the world’s largest companies.

In his new role, he will work with Bytronic’s growing list of manufacturing customers, building vision projects to help improve productivity and speed up moves towards smarter factory automation.

Martin Hurworth, CEO of Bytronic, said: “Iain joining us is a real endorsement of our business and a sign of our reputation in the industry. His technical knowledge of vision is second to none and I’m really excited to have him on the team. Our partnership with Cognex has never been stronger, and now with Iain on the team that will only get better, allowing us to help more customers transform their productivity with vision."

Iain's work at Cognex involved helping to develop deep learning camera software 

now used by big logistics companies handling millions of parcels each day.

With Bytronic being rated Platinum as a Partner Systems Integrator for Cognex since 2014, and more recently Logistics Partner Integrator since 2021, Iain is joining a team of familiar faces at its Innovation Campus.

Iain Clowery, technical manager for Bytronic, said: “I’ve known of Bytronic for a long time so I’m really looking forward to the new challenge. The team here is Cognex’s ‘go-to’ team for logistics integration and vision expertise. This, plus the variety of projects in logistics and factory automation was the big draw for me.

“Many industries are having to adapt and change in different ways after the pandemic, but what they all have in common is the need to automate to work smarter and more efficiently. That’s where we step in."

Bytronic has seen a rise in requests for vision systems from companies with global manufacturing sites, with new projects in Canada, Norway, Switzerland and Indonesia within the last six months.

While much of its work is done under confidentiality agreements, its customers include household names in consumer goods, food and beverage, logistics, automotive and battery manufacturing.

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!”
