Two companies based in the Oulu region are joining forces as Probot, a leader in robot automation, and Cajo Technologies, a laser marking pioneer, announced that they are going to be working together. A cooperation agreement was signed between the two companies on the 7th October. The agreement comes as a new assembly hall in Kempele is set to open by the end of 2022.
Not only are Probot and Cajo Technologies going to be operating within close proximity of each other, but they also have a substantially similar customer base. This is of massive benefit to clients, as the number of potential products and solutions available to them will increase as a result of the collaboration.
What this partnership means in terms of output is that wasteful and outdated manufacturing systems will soon be replaced by more powerful, comprehensive and sustainable systems for clients both in Finland and on the international market. These production-enhancing solutions combine high-quality marking, precise machine vision and reliable robot automation.
Matti Tikanmäki, Probot Chief Executive, said: “It is wonderful to start cooperating with such an innovative and youthful company. Cajo’s product marking is really futuristic technology! With that technology at our disposal, we can provide our customers with an efficient, environmentally friendly and traceable product marking solution for almost any material. In addition, Cajo and Probot are united by a progressive way of approaching even traditional industries. We are looking forward to joint projects with excitement!”
Niko Karsikas, Cajo Technologies CEO, said: “By cooperating with Probot, we achieve significant added value for material producers and further processors as well as component and end product manufacturers. In the manufacturing industry, there is a growing need for solutions that can increase the level of production process automation, improve the quality of products, and increase cost-efficiency using the most environmentally friendly methods. Today’s production, logistics and processing chains require the most accurate and real-time quality management and monitoring of material flows. The official requirements related to the traceability of products are also getting more strict all the time.”
