Expanding production capabilities for Industry 4.0
As a part of production capacity scale-up, 'Integrated Optics' plans to invest €0.4M into the expansion of Industry 4.0-ready manufacturing.
Starting February of 2019, Integrated Optics began to implement a significant expansion of its production capabilities, which is funded by the European Union Support Program ‘Pramonės skaitmeninimas’ (‘Digitization of Industry’) and administered by VsI ‘Lietuvos verslo paramos agentūra’ (Public Enterprise ‘Lithuanian Business Support Agency’).
'Robotics, software and electronics are always at the heart of 'Integrated Optics'. It would have been impossible to offer the World's smallest high-end lasers sources - the MatchBox Series - to the market without having good expertise in these disciplines.' - says Jonas Jonuška, the CTO and co-founder of the company.
Proprietary robotic systems for precision assembly of micro-optics have been developed internally over the last 5 years. Now it is time to scale non-core manufacturing processes with the throughput of state-of-art industrial digital machinery. Upon completion, of this task, 'Integrated Optics' will possess a high capacity production line for complete assembly and automated testing of laser sources produced by the company.
'This investment will heavily contribute to expanding the company's operations from low-volume/high-mix production into the production capacity of large series. - adds Evaldas Pabrėža, the CEO.
