ABSTRACT

The UK company specialises in industrial conditional monitoring across a variety of sectors. The firm has designed a smart bolt module that is ready for manufacturing. For this reason, the company is looking for partners in Germany who are able to manufacture their design under a manufacturing agreement.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The industrial IoT company is based in the North East of England, and they design and manufacture wireless telemetry and data acquisition systems. Their systems are used in a variety of sectors worldwide including renewable energy, defence, mining, marine, rail and automotive.

The company has been operating for over 20 years. Some of their past clients include Ford, Siemens, NASA and Network Rail.

They have now developed an IoT smart bolt that measures tension in real-time, notifying maintenance staff if bolt tension ever falls outside of the set parameters.

The company would like to work with a manufacturer in Germany who has the capacity to produce these bolts. The bolts are available for demonstration are the client is looking to enter into a manufacturing agreement.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The company is seeking a well-experienced manufacturer specifically in Germany. The partner should have the ability to integrate the manufacturing process of bolts with the smart bolt (in-line manufacturing).

The diameter of the bolt is 13.8mm with a total depth of 25.85mm. It's mainly made of stainless steel, with an O ring and PCB.

Specific competencies sought of the partner should include; strain gauging, high automation, calibration, large size bolts (including and in excess of for example M90), hydraulic presses and 2mm hole drilling to 200mm (electric discharge or conventional).

Previous experience in manufacturing IoT components would be preferred.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The partner should be a manufacturer located in Germany. The partner should be able to manufacture the smart bolts according to the client's requirements under a manufacturing agreement.


Advantages & innovations:

Using internet of things technology, the company's sensors can relay important information from what are often inhospitable environments. They then use machine learning and artificial intelligence to interpret the data.

In 2017, the company doubled its turnover and was awarded the title of "Most Innovative Business" in its region.

The company has now filed four patent applications.
