  3. 3. Automation We believe automation should make everyone's work easier. So when we design a system we consider the people who need to service the machine, the operator who must meet production demands and management who are looking for reliability and return on investment. We consider the life cycle of the system. The availability of spares, support, expandability through to decommissioning and disposal. Within our designs we consider how energy efficient the control system is and how we can reduce the overall consumption of energy by use of control. Our experience in high speed bottle, can filling and packaging machinery ensures we understand your requirements and can apply the latest technology to maximum benefit. Every enquiry has a Project Engineer appointed who ensures the customers requirements are interpreted and sees the project through to successful completion. Naturally our customers satisfaction is of the highest importance to us. Axial attained System Integrator Status with Allen Bradley - Rockwell and work closely with Siemens Automation to ensure we can offer the leading brands . Our expertise extends to Mitsubishi and Omron and some of the older legacy systems. Axial Partnership Ltd. Progress through automation Home
