Presentation on theme: "INTELLIGENT MACHINES CLUSTER IN THE TAMPERE REGION."— Presentation transcript:


2 Did you know that… …The world’s largest port automation test area is situated in the biggest Nordic inland city? …The world’s leading mining and tunneling manufacturer comes from a city that has no mines or tunnels, except for cars? …Two deep sea submarines, MIR I and MIR II, were built and tested in a city located between two vast lakes with max depth of 40 meters? …The world’s first smartphone, the Nokia Communicator, was born in 1996 in a city that neighbors a town called Nokia?

3 What is the Intelligent Machines cluster about? Intelligent Machines & manufacturing: Biggest market leaders Service and system providers, added value and subcontractors Manufacturing and assemblies Innovations and network New Factory, Demola, Protomo, Konela, Suuntaamo: Modern Innovation platforms FIMA, FIMECC, HERMIA: National and international coordination of the cluster UNIVERSITIES & COLLEGES: Top research and education, labor with know-how New innovation and application enablers, ICT and mobile sector, Other clusters

4 Intelligently working together 10 WORLD MARKET LEADERS AGCO Power Avant Tecno Bronto Skylift Cargotec Fastems Glaston John Deere Metso Automation Metso Mining and Construction Sandvik SUBCONTRACTORS Hydraulics and electronics: Dynaset, DA-Design, Parker Hannifin Design and engineering: Enmac, Comatec, Idean Enterprises Control and software: Novatron, CrossControl, Wapice Product development, testing and simulation: Creanex, OptoFidelity, Atostek Power and transmission: Katsa, GardnerDenver, Msc Electronics Manufacturing and assemblies: Takoma, HT Laser, Peiron ADDED VALUE FOR EVERYONE

5 Globally recognized innovation platforms The New Factory is an environment for open innovation where ideas can be processed into prototypes, pilot projects, products and services, new business and new jobs. Demola is an open innovation environment where university students from different fields develop products and services in teams together with companies and public-sector organizations. Protomo is a developing community for starting businesses where idea developers, seasoned professionals and young talents spar each other when creating new products and service development. Suuntaamo connects ordinary people in the development of new and innovative products and services and at the same time improve their own living environment. Konela is a new center of innovation for mechanical engineering and energy technology. Konela is coordinated by the innovation company Hermia

6 Visionary organisations and companies Hermia has a strong experience in operating between the industrial sector and R&D. Hermia is the most important Finnish innovation company in the ICT and mechanical engineering fields, bringing together players from numerous high-tech industries. FIMECC (Finnish Metals and Engineering Competence Cluster) creates new international research networks, top science, application-driven research contents and business benefits. FIMA (The Forum for Intelligent Machines) is a co-operation forum for more than 30 companies that operate in the research, development, and manufacturing of mobile work machines.

7 Where do we get the know-how? The Tampere Region’s universities provide high-level education and they are active cooperation partners for industry. Supporting research, development and education: TAMPERE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY Intelligent Hydraulics and Automation Engineering Design Pervasive Computing Electronics and Communications Engineering Signal Processing Production Engineering Optoelectronics Research Centre ORC UNIVERSITY OF TAMPERE The School of Information Sciences TAMPERE UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES A specialization program of intelligent machines for students of technology TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTER OF FINLAND Virtual prototyping in the machine and vehicle industry New intelligent and ecologic solutions for machines and vehicles Life cycle management and service business technologies TAMPERE VOCATIONAL COLLEGE Adult education: machinery and metal technology Vocational qualifications: technology and transport sector study programs TAMPERE ADULT EDUCATION CENTRE Automotive field Electricity and automation ICT

8 The business environment In Tampere everything works World class research and university-industry collaboration High level of technology, system integration and industrial service business know-how with deep understanding of customer processes and needs Easy to reach– one-day business trip to all major locations Talented, experienced and loyal workforce provides good value for the money Growth center that keeps on growing At the top of the most attractive Finnish cities – year after year

9 Tampere is in the heart of Finland Tampere Region - Population 499 000 - 31 000 places of business - 2nd largest airport in the country - 2/3 of Finns live with in 1,5h drive from Tampere - Technology industry in the Tampere Region: Turnover 7 000 M€ Employment 34 000 Companies1 000 R&D investments 750 M€

10 Functional Finland Gateway to Europe: Finland offers a central location in the expanding markets of Northern Europe and also provides an ideal business gateway to Russia. Safe and stable: Finland enjoys the highest possible AAA status with the global credit rating agencies Fitch Ratings, Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s.
