Pemamek’s customers have very specific needs when it comes to their production process. Every customer has unique specifications. Hence, a multidisciplinary team is required to achieve customer satisfaction. Pemamek was looking for support in projects that require software and simulation expertise. The company chose Etteplan due to our deep and wide knowledge of these domains and experienced experts that could be delivered under one roof.

Working in cooperation with Pemamek experts

Etteplan has offered Pemamek additional resources for the development of welding automation software since 2016. Our experts have worked within Pemamek’s organization in the domains of software development, simulations and mathematics. In more detail, the work has mostly consisted of simulating the functions of welding machines, testing robots, developing desktop software and most importantly, serving Pemamek’s customers around the world.

Etteplan experts have worked in small project teams that include members from both Pemamek and Etteplan. According to Janika Hankaniemi, software development team manager from Etteplan, the cooperation has been excellent. “We’ve worked seamlessly with Pemamek’s experts and the cooperation has been daily. Inputs from both sides have been taken into account very well.”

Teemu Laine, Software designer from Etteplan, agrees. “I’ve enjoyed working in very diverse teams that consist of welding technicians, robotics experts, sales people, engineers and mechanics. Being the only software expert in the team, you really have to dig deep to be able to understand the core problems and provide solutions.”

More resources equals satisfied customers

Receiving support from Etteplan has enabled Pemamek to concentrate its’ resources towards developing its’ core competences. Pemamek can cost-effectively acquire new resources from Etteplan on a schedule that best suits them.

Most importantly, by combining Pemamek’s expertise in industrial automation with Etteplan’s software and simulation knowledge, Pemamek can serve its’ customers even better.
