Bytronic Vision Intelligence has strengthened its UK team with the appointment of expert vision engineer Iain Clowery. Iain joins Bytronic as technical manager specialising in vision and ID after a career in vision engineering spanning almost 30 years.
During two decades at the 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 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.
Iain Clowery 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 been rated Platinum as a Partner Systems Integrator for Cognex since 2014 & Logistics Partner Integrator since 2021. It has seen a rise in requests for vision systems from global manufacturers, with new projects in Canada, Norway, Switzerland & Indonesia in the last six months.
