  • “Overall Reel Service feels that SP Automation & Robotics offer a highly professional service with levels of high quality and attention to detail. This is our second project working together and throughout the past 2 years, there haven’t been any areas of concern regarding the level of service, technical support or quality. Personally, I look forward to any potential ventures working together in the future, SP Automation & Robotics will certainly be at the forefront of our thoughts should any projects arise.”

    Craig Murray

    Operations Manager, Reel Service

  • “The eagerness from SP Automation & Robotics to meet the requirements asked by Morrison Bowmore Distillery was impressive and the build quality from SP Automation & Robotics was excellent for both the control panel and the servo drive stand. This project has greatly enhanced the quality and integrity of our product and gives us the confidence and evidence to challenge our glass supplier moving forward. The ability for the vision system to pick up flaws that are deep in the neck of the glass and reject said faults.”

  • “During design/quotation stage SP Automation & Robotics were in constant contact to ensure all requirements were met. The build quality, as usual, was of a very high standard. I was constantly updated on the progress of the project from start to finish and the equipment performed exactly as required.”

    Stuart Robb

    Maintenance Project Technician, Haemonetics (UK) Ltd

  • “We chose universal robots due to vast number of options in terms of size, payload, end-effectors and coupled with the user-friendly intuitive software it provides quick programming and swift fine-tuning of the robot into many different industry ready operations. Having this new technology on campus will help redesign our engineering programmes with a relatable focus on robotics, automation, and the digital manufacturing technologies of the future. If you would like to know more about robotics, then please see our website for our new PDA (Professional Development Award) in Advanced Manufacturing.”
