Ionix celebrated the 10 year of operation in the spring in Hämeenlinna with good food and drink.
The gala dinner commemorated Ionix’s 10-year history, and here are few gems from the archives.
Greetings from the Chairman of the Board and the Managing Director:
Congratulations to 10-year-old Ionix Oy! Ten years ago, three former co-workers set up a business where it would be nice to come to work every day. The same three founders are still the main shareholders of Ionix. In the beginning, the company's business consisted mainly of consultation services, but today a growing part of the turnover consists of turnkey deliveries, in which, in addition to engineering expertise, production equipment ready for operation is delivered to the customer.
Expertise is emphasized in Ionix's operations. We do not have our own products, but our expertise is to acquire the laser equipment that best suits the customer's needs and build automation around them.
I want to thank the partners who saw and believed in the ability of the Ionix team right from the start. The support of these market leaders has been vital for a growing and developing company. We have been able to grow and develop over the years through interesting and challenging projects. The original engineering style is still reflected in the precision of the work: the documents and plans of Ionix's experts are always carefully made and up-to-date. It facilitates external auditing that processes and practices are in place.
We are top experts in the laser industry in Finland. The laser is a universal tool for marking, surface treatment, 3D printing, micromachining, cutting and welding. Today, the laser is used everywhere: in industry, medicine, food, etc. The laser equipment market is growing globally by more than 10% per year. It is a big market worldwide, with workstations and automation coming on top. Applications range from aerospace high-tech to kitchen scissors. Almost everything can be done with a laser, but you also need to be able to evaluate cost-effectiveness and the most suitable laser for the application. In most cases, application testing is also required before the device is sold to ensure that the design works in practice. These services play a significant role in Ionix's service portfolio and guarantee a high-quality end result for the customer.
Laser processing is an interesting field where, for example, laser hybrid welding and automated laser marking are interesting developments. There will be a demand for Ionix's laser expertise in the future for sure!
