oremost Electronics, the engineering-led Essex based importer and specialist distributor of electromechanical components, has announced a new distribution partnership with TEKNOKOL.

Based in Turkey, TEKNOKOL is a manufacturer and supplier to world- leading integrators of control panels. The TEKNOKOL family of products support machine manufacturers in

providing ergonomic machine control panels. TEKNOKOL products are designed to enhance the Human Machine Interface (HMI) experience. The panels are designed to incorporate support/suspension arm components and include industry standard VESA mounts for monitors and separate panels to incorporate keyboards. All TEKNOKOL enclosures are modular and configurable suiting a wide range of applications. Two enclosure series are available from TEKNOKOL; ECO line and TKP for light and heavy duty service respectively. The internal depth of the enclosure can be selected to suit a particular application, with deeper versions available known as the X90 Solution featuring hinged access. Standard features include IP65 protection, anodised aluminium colour, RAL 7035 corner couplings, and RAL 7016 corner covers. TEKNOKOL can provide custom-coloured couplings and covers upon request, as well as machining for LCD screens, buttons, switches, etc. TEKNOKOL Support Arms (Suspended) provide the articulated connection between the ECO / TKP enclosure to the host machine. A comprehensive choice of parts is available to build a support arm for 40 – 60 – 120kg loading. Assembly benefits from being modular. Coupling towers provide a solution for installations where the panel or support arm cannot be directly attached to the host machine. The towers are hollow providing a secure conduit to contain peripherals such as cables, sockets, etc. The Towers are supplied with a floor mounting base. Available in heights of 2.0, 2.5, or 3.0m with profiles of 150x150 or 200×200 mm. Emma Kempster, key account manager at Foremost Electronics, commented: ”We are very pleased to be the UK distributor for TEKONOL. Their HMI cabinets and accessories are perfect for our rapidly growing sales to panel builders and systems integrators. These high quality, very flexible products will be welcomed by our customers.” MADE SMARTER ROLLS-OUT INNOVATIVE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME

An innovative leadership programme equipping business leaders with the vision and the skills to pursue smarter manufacturing is being rolled out to leading universities. The Made Smarter Leadership Programme,

developed in partnership with Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), is a blend of workshops, site visits to SME manufacturers who are already on the journey of adopting digital technology, facilitated-learning sessions, and special project sprints to test new ideas. With 22 leaders already empowered to

transform their individual businesses, Lancaster University is readying for its third intake on 22 October, while the University of Liverpool and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) will begin delivering the programme on 4 and 12 November respectively. The roll-out gives more SME leaders, based in Cheshire and Warrington, Cumbria, Greater


Manchester, Lancashire and the Liverpool City Region, the opportunity to learn the strategies to support the adoption of hi-tech and digitally- based manufacturing techniques into their own production processes. It also explores organisational culture and how to engage and enthuse employees and other stakeholders about their digital transformation journey. With social distancing measures likely to stay in

place for the foreseeable future, the programme will initially be delivered predominantly online with a view to move to face-to-face workshops when this is safe to implement. These include seven workshops led by both academics delivering leading edge thinking and business practitioners demonstrating adoption in real business settings. Through the programme delegates will also

embark on ‘sprints’ where they would test their ideas with employees from the business to build engagement and learning from each other.

Site visits will also be conducted virtually, until it

is safe to do in-person. Registration for the next Leadership

Programme is now open. For more information or to apply for your place visit October 2020 Instrumentation Monthly
