LCR 4.0 case study: CNC Robotics
CNC Robotics is the UK’s leading robotics integration company specialising in advanced robotics systems for machining. Founded in 2010, the Liverpool-based manufacturer works in a range of sectors including automotive, aerospace and creative.
Last year, CNC Robotics approached business support programme LCR 4.0 and delivery partner Sensor City to design and develop its latest cloud-based software, CNCR-Live. The aim of the device is to help manufacturers boost productivity by increasing the connectivity between digital and automated systems.
Through LCR 4.0 – which is part-funded by ERDF – CNC Robotics was able to access Sensor City’s specialised skills and engineering equipment, including the NI LabView Software Development System, to accelerate the development of the product.
CNC Robotics integrated real-time diagnostic technology into the CNCR-Live software, enabling it to remotely monitor robotic data to predict when maintenance is needed on a machine. This prevents failures in the production process that can cause a slowdown or shutdown and as a result, boosts productivity.
Since the success of the project, CNC Robotics has expanded its team with the appointment of a field service engineer and also a project manager.
