Oerotec is supplying McLaren Applied Technologies (MAT) with customized electronic hardware to support its continuing drive into data-intensive services. MAT builds on its core data collection and analysis expertise gained in Formula 1, monitoring and measuring a racing car and its driver in real time. It now applies its capabilities into other industries: improved health monitoring systems, a scheduling system for Heathrow Airport that reduces flight delays, better data for oil and gas companies that speeds exploration, and reducing the time that pharmaceutical companies have to spend on drug trials are all examples of advances that MAT have enabled through its big data collection and processing expertise.
Increasing demand for its services means MAT is continually expanding its data collection and processing capabilities, and Verotec has been selected to supply housings for test equipment and instrumentation. Finished in corporate white gloss, 37U 600 x 800 IMRAK cabinets are fitted with top mounted fan trays, vented top covers, chassis supports and machined plain and vented rear infill I/O panels. Diplomat desktop enclosures, also finished in white gloss are supplied, as are custom 600mm deep KM6 card cages complete with vented top and base covers. Multiple versions of custom machined and silk screened KM6 front panels are also supplied.
Verotec Commercial Director Marc Harvey commented, “MAT is a fast-moving organization and we are able to support their ever-evolving requirements for custom enclosures and panels on very short lead times, which is one of their most important requirements.”

With challenges like Industry 4.0 turning the manufacturing world upside down, we see solutions that are being quite brutally put together, through acquisition or partnership, which are expected to be perceived as being the solutions of tomorrow.

In many software products for manufacturing, the common approach previously was to show as many as possible, if not all, of the various data elements about products, machines and processes to engineers, who liked to feel totally in control of what they were doing. The need, however, to manage complex databases, to have detailed views of values and attributes of anything in the digital domain, rapidly became a major distraction to people performing their designated roles.

The industrial world is in motion, as we face a revolution in terms of processes, organizational structures, hardware and software in our companies. Many critics complain that terms like Industry 4.0 and smart factory are rather arbitrary and lack concrete meaning. That is correct. What is also true, however, is that technical progress always starts out with a vision, which is then put into concrete terms as time moves on.
