Trusted integrator

Bytronic are a Cognex Partner System Integrator (PSI) allowing us to improve our customers’ productivity while reducing the costs associated with automated systems, enhancing performance and creating a safer, more efficient work environment. In 2013 Bytronic became the UK’s first Gold Partner Systems Integrator for Cognex. In just a year, Bytronic Automation was promoted to Platinum PSI, sharing this status with only a very few companies worldwide.

In 2016 Bytronic became the first, and currently the only, officially recognised system integrator for FLIR thermal imaging cameras. Prior to now, FLIR have only sold their technology through distribution companies but have never had official partners running their system integration, making this a huge step both for FLIR and Bytronic. We sell turnkey solutions, integrating the full range of FLIR automation cameras.

Our engineers will help you to choose the most appropriate hardware, test it thoroughly, and then implement it on your site with minimal disruption to your business.
