Our strategic collaborations with the ecosystem of design service providers and contract manufacturers have established a robust framework, reinforcing our commitment to excellence. Significant investments in process digitalization underscore our dedication to embracing the latest technologies, resulting in three changes in our business operations.
Digital tools have always played a pivotal role in our operations. We have worked together with the best global project professionals, learned from industrial project expertise, and developed a reference framework, particularly tailored for tailored automation solutions delivery project work. We want to solidify our reputation as a leading name in the project business, requiring robust process expertise and mastery of digital tools. The implementation of a new project management tool and personnel training exemplifies our commitment to this initiative.
Our dedication to meeting the intricate needs of our clients has led to the development of new technologies, often relying on mathematical algorithms. From overcoming complex measurement challenges to creating proprietary software, technology serves as a driving force behind our success. CEO Kauko Väinämö emphasizes the importance of data analytics in problem-solving, drawing parallels with the approach taken in Formula 1 cars: “You can adopt a similar strategy used in Formula 1 cars, where an abundance of sensors and analytics provides ample data for effective problem-solving. Ginolis is now a data-driven organization.”
We have developed an IoT software solution for our customers. This pilot platform provides real-time insights into every aspect of customer manufacturing operations. In addition to standard OEE monitoring, the software identifies necessary anomalies in the process and uncovers root causes, enhancing overall efficiency. Its success has sparked interest in extending its application to other devices on the customer production site in addition to Ginolis lines.
Ginolis continues to explore opportunities in the medical field. Our commitment to innovation extends to incorporating advancements in AI learning. Our experienced team of machine vision experts is already leveraging AI applications in various customer projects enabling faster commissioning as well as providing QC solutions to defects that cannot be found with traditional rules-based classification.
Years of expertise in developing microfluidic production lines are now converging with the growing demand in the medical industry. We anticipate substantial growth in the microfluidics sector, making it an integral part of our production technology. Our proficiency extends to offering design expertise for enzyme or metrology-level profile measurements, high-accuracy dispensing, and manufacturing production lines.
As Ginolis charts its course toward the future, our unwavering commitment to excellence in project management, continuous development of design tools, and delivering high-quality production remains at the forefront. The formula for our success is rooted in technological innovation, strategic planning, and a steadfast dedication to creating solutions that transcend industries. At Ginolis, we are not merely adapting to change; we are driving it.
