Ionix has received a recognition in the category of innovation in the Boliden Supplier Summit 2019 held in Stockholm on November 19. Ionix delivered an automated aluminum cathode refurbishing line to Boliden Kokkola in 2018, and Boliden wanted to recognize this in the Supplier Summit with the following motivation:
“The awarded supplier is agile, cooperative and above all, innovative in its field of operations.
The company has proven to be an agile operator that is able to compete in a market dominated by significantly larger competitors. This competiveness comes not only from their competence but also from company’s ability to utilize their business network in order to find optimal solutions to customer challenges.
With their can-do attitude they provided Boliden with a tailored solution combining novel approaches in robotics and machine vision with modern laser welding technologies. This solution has turned previous, labor intensive, work into a fully automated operation that significantly improves work safety, product quality and overall efficiency.”
