On March 23rd, the Governor of the State of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, announced a “Stay-at-Home” order. This order is currently scheduled to last until April 13, 2020. While this is certainly a challenging time for all, I can assure you BTI is doing our part to be productive in these unprecedented times. Toward that end, we are pleased to support our country and world under the Governments Critical Supplier Designation for specific projects. Additionally, while we understand that some interruptions are unavoidable, we wanted to provide an update on the steps we are taking in an effort to promote health and wellness while minimizing disruptions to our valued customers like you.
Other than limited staff on the manufacturing floor and service we are fully staffed, albeit remotely, in Mechanical, Electrical, Software and Controls Engineering. Additionally, we are partially staffed onsite in other key areas of our business including Operations, Finance, Shipping & Receiving and Purchasing. Lastly our Sales Engineers are available via email, text and phone to answers questions and provide support.
BTI’s Measurement & Testing Services division remains open providing balancing and testing services for designated “Critical Manufacturing Sector Suppliers”.
Our dedication to our customers, employees and country remains steadfast. We have seen this crisis bring out the absolute best in people and are encouraged, by working together, we will come out at the other end of this stronger, more nimble and certainly more adaptable!
Thank you for your time. We wish you and yours the very best!

BTI has combined Microsoft Windows-based software with industrial, NEMA-rated computers yielding the most reliable, advanced, and user-friendly computer controls available. With superior durability and flexibility, BTI’s software delivers features needed in today’s manufacturing environment in a clear and user-friendly way. Extensive use of visual aids and detailed menus simplify machine use and reduce human error. Illustrative pictures and graphics reflective of your specific application lead the machine user confidently though critical operations, while built-in error-proofing helps assure that the steps are performed correctly. All unit types are operator selectable, so you can display what you and your team are familiar with. Typical software updates and program changes are made easy by downloading a self-executable file from BTI’s FTP site.
BTI’s software typically displays actual machine photos and graphics to aid the operator during setup and changeover procedures.
In an effort to minimize the negative effects of “button pushers,” BTI’s software allows a plant administrator (typically a plant engineer), to give different access levels to every user or discipline. Some customers choose by individual, while others choose by discipline (such as engineering, maintenance, technician, operator, etc.). In addition, the machine logs key changes with a date and time stamp in an effort to identify potential issues. To assign access rights, the administrator simply places a “check” next to whatever screens the user is to have access to. The user must log in to make changes, or in some cases, swipe their respective badge to log in.
