Kbiosystems, a production-line equipment manufacturer, was looking to replace expensive electronic control boards with something more suited to their applications. Lyra Electronics came up with a replacement control board that was not only cheaper than the original, but it had more functionality. This meant that Kbiosystems only needed to stock the one control board rather than a control board plus a thermocouple module, plus a motor driver board, plus whatever else the application required.
This universal control board is now designed into all Kbiosystems’ new applications, reducing cost and complexity. Lyra holds stock of the board and supplies them as they are needed by the customer, reducing their inventory. For each new application, Lyra works with their engineers to develop the software, reducing their time to market. Any customer suggestions for improvements to the board itself are fed back into the design, ensuring that the next batch they receive is even better than the last. Utilising the expertise at Lyra Electronics has enabled Kbiosystems to stay ahead in their industry and supply world-class equipment.
