A Leeds-based spring manufacturer has secured funding to support the use of digital technology.
Spinks, a pocket spring manufacturer and the components supplier to the mattress and furniture industries, has been awarded £670,000 by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
One of just 12 UK companies awarded a UKRI grant under its Made Smarter innovation challenge, Spinks, which is part of Yorkshire-based luxury bedmaker Harrison Spinks, intends to develop an application of digital technologies within wire drawing, spring manufacturing and bed making.
The grant will be put towards the development of a smart network of digital decision tools to simulate and predict resource and energy use, with sensors and meters to assess production and improve its effectiveness. 
Darren Marcangelo, managing director at Spinks, said: “We are delighted to be one of only 12 UK companies recognised for our digital innovation efforts and continued focus on driving forward the sustainability of our manufacturing processes. 
“It is vital for the manufacturing sector to continuously evolve and adopt the very latest in digital technology solutions and we're proud to be a part of pioneering these efforts.”
Spinks will work alongside consortium partners Bespoke Automation Controls Solutions, which has expertise in machine programming languages, and the Manufacturing Technology Centre, which brings experience in digitised factory projects.
