That Engineering Chat


Paul Jepson, Oriental Motor UK

Season 1, Ep. 3

In this podcast, Nicole and Caroline talk to Paul Jepson of Oriental Motor UK about how the current pandemic has affected the supply chain and the steps taken to make sure customers are still able to design and create systems.

He explains how the company, which operates in different geographical regions, has managed to adapt and introduce practical measures to manage customer timelines and – most importantly – keep lead times to an absolute minimum.

They also discuss the role of technology, from video calls to maintain customer contact, to how Covid-19 has accelerated the drive to automation and robotics. The company matches this evolution, introducing communications protocols to its AZ Series of closed loop stepper motors. Find out what this means for developers and users and what design support is available for increased automation through this health pandemic and beyond.
