Product Technology Partners (PTP) is proud to support and organise the Cambridge LabVIEW User Group (CLUG).

Our next meeting will take place on Thursday 12th October at the Trinity Centre on Cambridge Science Park.

As well as networking opportunities and a question and answer session, there will be various presentations taking place as well:

  • ‘Code re-use with VI Package Manager’ by Michael Strathmann CLA
  • ‘Streamlining developments using VI templates’ by Dave Barr CLA
  • ‘Introduction to the Sound and Vibration Toolkit for testing rotating machine’ by Malcolm Myers CLA

The user group was set up to provide peer-to-peer support with members ranging from engineers who are using LabVIEW on a daily basis to those who are new to graphical programming – and everything in between! Cambridge LabVIEW User Group

CLUG is now in its ninth year of providing the opportunity for engineers across the Eastern Region to grow their LabVIEW expertise by interacting with others.

Meetings are an ideal way to meet and talk to engineers facing the same challenges and you will have an opportunity to share your experiences and ideas.

Our last meeting was held at the beginning of the year and attracted around 40 people, kindly hosted by Cambridge Consultants at the Science Park.

PT Partners stand at Sensors and InstrumentationAs with any trade show, you always hope the hard work – before, during and after – will pay dividends.
So we were pleased that last week’s two-day Sensors and Instrumentation exhibition resulted in a number of reasonable leads.
It was our second time at the show, held at NEC Birmingham, and what was particularly interesting is the diverse nature of sectors that these leads emanated from.
We spoke to a number of clients about potential interesting projects – which certainly made our attendance at the exhibition worthwhile.
We have spent the last few days progressing with this interest and we hope to announce more news soon.

We are delighted to be taking our place at next week’s Sensors & Instrumentation exhibition at the NEC Birmingham on Tuesday 26th September and Wednesday 27th September.

The two-day showcase is the UK’s only national sensors event and you can find us on stand number K20.

It will be the second year we have exhibited at the prestigious show – and we generated a number of new leads following a successful debut last year.

Product Technology Partners (PTP) have been specialists in Test, Control and Software for almost 20 years.

Our team of expert engineers has vast experience in integrating sensors into complete working solutions. We can offer turnkey solutions which include software, electronics and hardware.

The Sensors & Instrumentation exhibition includes the latest products, technology and solutions from market-leading suppliers. We would be delighted to talk to you about how we can help solve your requirements.

PTP is delighted to welcome Seamus Rafferty to the team. Seamus joins us from e2v and has substantial software development expertise, particularly in National Instruments LabVIEW.

PTP has added three new engineers to the team in the past three months as the company continues to grow strongly. Kevin Snelling, one of the company’s directors said; ‘It’s great to welcome three talented engineers to the team. Gideon, Kenneth and Seamus bring with them a wide range of skills which enhance our ability to deliver larger and more complex projects to our clients.’

PTP is under new ownership

Cambridge based engineering consultancy Product Technology Partners (PTP) is now under new ownership. The company’s Engineering Manager, Ian Hurst, acquired a shareholding in the business on December 1st 2016. PTP specialises in custom Test & Measurement, Control Systems and bespoke software solutions for clients across a wide range of industries.

In his new role as Director of PTP Ian said: “Since joining PTP, I have come to realise how strong the company’s ability to provide solutions really is and how much potential for the future the business has. It is clear that the company is very well positioned to grow and that its skills are very much in demand. It is quite rare to see an organisation with such a wide range of capabilities and experience. I really look forward to helping provide the direction and focus to take PTP to the next level.”

PTP’s other Director, Kevin Snelling, said of the purchase: It is great to start the New Year on a high with Ian taking a directorship and co-ownership of the company. Ian’s wealth of commercial and technical skills have already helped PTP move in new directions and both Ian and I are looking forward to fulfilling our expansion plans and addressing the challenges that 2017 will bring.
