Research and Development
At the heart of Watkiss Automation Ltd is a commitment to research and development.
Our approach is to talk directly to end users, to understand how they work and to listen to what they have to say. In this way our products are designed and developed to satisfy the requirements of the customer. We also work in co-operation with other manufacturers to develop products for growing markets and technologies.
The Watkiss research and development process is an entirely in-house operation covering all software, electronic and mechanical design elements.
Our approach to innovative design and development is matched by our dedication to manufacturing quality.
We have purpose designed facilities, advanced production equipment and the latest materials and technology are used where appropriate. The result is that the Company has a complete in-house manufacturing capability and is able to directly control product quality and production scheduling.
Throughout the manufacturing process, the emphasis is on quality management. At each production stage the individual elements, as well as the assembled components, are rigorously tested.
From the use of precision equipment in controlled environments, to the microscopic testing of circuit boards, every element of the Watkiss manufacturing operation combines to give our customers durable and reliable products.
