My name is Tom; I am the automation and control specialist at Rowse. I have worked at Rowse for over ten years and before this was an electrical design engineer in Plymouth Dockyard. Since joining Rowse, I have been responsible for the industrial and control offering and also providing technical support for these products.

When I joined Rowse in 2008, my background was more electrically bias, and I had little experience with the wonderful world of pneumatics. It was a steep learning curve at the start; learning the products, methods and terminology, I was glad of the support of some of my colleagues and some of the many training courses I attended at the start. Despite all this, I have a developed a real passion for pneumatics and love pneumatic circuit design and product selection for my customers.

As pneumatic manufacturers have continued to innovate, we see the introduction of more electrical biased products such as electric cylinders and actuators and communication-based valve terminals; I am pleased to of had my electrical automation knowledge to fall back on.

Since joining Rowse, I have continued to develop my knowledge as an engineer and have recently been certified as a machinery safety expert. Machine safety is another passion of mine it allows me to be involved in projects in much greater detail offering support carrying out machinery risk assessments, CE marking and selecting products for various applications.

The content I write about for Rowse covers topics I either find interesting or based on some of the questions I frequently asked carrying out my work. With a keen interest in automation and control products and their development, I hope you find my content both interesting and informative and would welcome any suggestions for topics to cover.
