i3 Group Solutions partners with Sorion Electronics for the 14th Advanced Engineering Exhibition at NEC Birmingham

23rd October 2023, Letchworth, UK

i3 Group Solutions, a leading provider of factory production systems and electronics test solutions, announced today that they will be exhibiting at the 14th edition of Advanced Engineering, 1 – 2 November at the NEC Birmingham, sharing a stand with one of its partners, Sorion Electronics Ltd, at stand P174.

The annual Advanced Engineering event has long been a fixture for industry professionals and innovators. This year, it will be celebrating innovation, collaboration, and sustainability – reflecting the transformative strides the industry is making towards a more integrated and environmentally conscious future.

i3 Group Solutions will be exhibiting their Smarter Manufacturing approach incorporating digital twinning and simulation when developing manufacturing systems. This approach supports manufacturers who are considering automation or semi-automation by helping them to understand where automation works best:

  • What part of the production process to automate
  • How to increase throughput and performance
  • Costs savings and ROI
  • Use automation to overcome resource issues

Incorporating digital twinning and simulation into the design phase of an automation project de-risks the development of manufacturing systems such as production lines, factory infrastructure, and special purpose machinery.

  • Significant cost savings by mitigating the cost and time required to build physical prototypes.
  • Using twins and simulation to test different scenarios to optimise their processes.

Visitors to stand P174 will have the opportunity to see these solutions in action and speak with the company’s expert team about how they can benefit their manufacturing operations.

“Our participation in the Advanced Engineering event underscores our dedication to pushing boundaries in the manufacturing sector.” said Ewan Lloyd-Baker, Chairman of i3 Group Solutions. “Partnering with Sorion Electronics for this exhibition allows us both to showcase the strength of our collaboration and to highlight the innovative solutions that arise when two industry leaders join forces,”

The two-day event is expected to attract over 9,000 visitors from around the world, including manufacturers, industry experts, and technology providers, who will have 400+ exhibition stands to explore, offering solutions and products across all industries and sectors to help improve productivity and inspire creativity.

“With the rapid technological shifts that these sectors have been experiencing, events like the Advanced Engineering exhibition become even more crucial. They offer a platform where professionals can exchange ideas, explore potential collaborations, and stay abreast of the latest trends.” said Oliver Buhlinger, Head of Technology, i3 Group Solutions. “We believe that digital twinning and simulation technology will play a critical role in the future of manufacturing, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this innovation.”
