4IR.UK British Systems
Product labelling for a new Industrial Internet of Things device. Supported by European Regional Development Funding (ERDF).
4IR.UK British Systems was founded locally in 2016 to support the Electronics Assembly industry move towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This included the full spectrum of customers from equipment suppliers to contract manufacturers. One such advancement was the release of IPC-HERMES-9852 in 2017 which is superseding IPC-SMEMA-9851 so the industry required an upgrade path. Following discussions with Electro Design AB who are manufacturers of board handling equipment, a SMEMA Hermes Adaptor was developed based on a Raspberry Pi and assembled at a contract manufacturer in Poole.
Funding was secured in 2019 and AUB Innovation supported with the prototyping of UV printed and laser cut acrylic labelling giving the product a durable and finished appearance.
The SMEMA Hermes Adaptor is now being used in electronic assembly factories across Europe and America.
