    Hi everyone I'm interested to know if any of you have consulted on proposals to move from standard hours (i.e. 40 hour week Mon-Fri) contracts to annualised hours (5/7 day week). Would you be happy to share your approach, outcomes benefits etc. thanks Kind regards Marie ​

    Hi All, We are opening a small manufacturing unit in Poland. However, I need some advice about Health and Safety. I have a number of H&S suppliers who are willing to provide us their services, but each one is different, and they are now confusing us with what we need to do and what is “nice” to do. I would like to talk through the process with someone in the UK who has experience of H&S matters in Poland to understand what we legally need to do to comply.

    Report shows that unprecedented change will see major car brand fail in next three years One of Europe’s iconic car brands will go out of business in the next three years according to a new automotive survey released today. More than half of respondents to ‘The Innovation Race’ – a Protolabs report that explores the challenges and opportunities for Europe’s car makers – expect a big name to fall victim to the unprecedented period of change currently being seen across the globe. Stricter environmental regulation in the coming 12 months was deemed to be the most pressing...

    Hi, I have a fleet of 17 company cars for mixed business & private use all of which are presently traditional IC engined vehicles with bias towards diesel at present. We lease all of our vehicles on a 3 year basis and would really like to embrace & encourage a move towards greener vehicles with alternative fuels or hybrid power. Looking at plug in hybrids being the most likely alternative due to highish business mileage I’ve done some simple first pass analysis of... Lease costs (very similar IC Vs alternative although P11D/OTR costs are higher) Benefits of reduced fuel use (some...

    Tim, I have a client called Shearfab who are based at Widnes. They certainly do the powder coating as I've photographed it in action. Why not have a word with John Tollitt ? 0151 422 3056, he's my contact there and is a jolly nice chap. He'll certainly help you if he can.

    Spectacular images for use in industry create a big and often long lasting impression. I am an industrial photographer working from Cheshire and began my relationship with BIG industry when working as staff photographer with Saudi ARAMCO based in Dhahran in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Everything in ARAMCO was built on such a colossal scale and that was where my appetite for industrial photography began. Since the mid 1990's I've offered my services to manufacturers, process industries, science based industries, fabricators and companies who handle materials ranging from fertiliser to...

    In 2017, I won the EEF Manufacturing Photography competition in the Professional Category with my shot of stone slab cutting. Commissioned by Atlas Copco Compressors In 2018, I won the Manufacturing Process Category with my shot for DuPont Personal Protection featuring a sprayer coating steelwork. This was later on display at Lime Street Station, Liverpool and other stations around the country. I am keen to learn if anyone else saw any of the 2018 winners at other stations, there were about six in total around January / February 2019. Any sightings please ? Thank you. Adrian Waine

    Hi Everybody I am having several articles written at present about my role with clients or potential clients. These articles will all be published in Marketing Matters online Magazine and will be about professional photography and manufacturing. Hence, I am about to ask several clients their reasons why they commission me rather than someone else and what criteria would be important in terms of selecting an industrial photographer for the job. For instance, who might be the best person to do this, does he have proper lighting, has he worked in a factory before, does he understand the...

    I am currently looking to source an MRP system. Key functionality for my company is scheduling under the following scenarios: 1) We often receive urgent orders which are required to be integrated into an already tight production schedule. The MRP system shall calculate a “what if” scenario for whether a new order can be accepted to be completed to a customer's deadline. The MRP system shall offer various scenarios of how the new order can be incorporated and, if necessary, which other orders are affected. Finally, when order and deadline is accepted and scenario is chosen, the MRP...

    Hi Jane High We went with direct replacements for our lighting. We had several HighBay lighting and replaced them with the LED version of the same to ease installation. We had out maintenance manager replace them himself to save on costs as they were mainly plug and play but there was a little bit of rewiring that was required. We got the lighting company to view the factory and give us a lighting schema to show the lux levels around the building depending on which wattage LED light we preferred. We decided to mix the wattage and have lower watt lighting above our mezzanine floors and...

    Hi Jane High There are environmental aspects to consider as well. We have gone for LED soft white panels in the offices after a user test and LED tubes also soft white in the factory and warehouse. They can be disconcerting to look at as they are quite bright but it’s the nearest thing to even day light I have come acrossand, you learn not to look direct at them. The light is so good I don’t notice if its sunshine or a grey day. Buy the best you can afford as there is some junk out there. Once they are up they seem very reliable and there is a big difference on the monthly bill. If you...
