Jukka Pakarinen, Managing Director.

Greater productivity and competitiveness

Our business philosophy is to boost our customers’ production capacity and productivity with top-notch automation solutions. Our design work is based on solutions that give our customers a competitive edge and meet the functional requirements for the system. OT-Control’s electrical and automation solutions help to raise your production processes to the next level.

Technological expertise

Programming of automation solutions represents our core expertise. Our design success stems from solid software architecture and high-quality coding that come together to form a reliable and cost-efficient basis for further development and easy maintenance. Our customers see the benefits of this work in the fast, efficient, and reliable performance of their systems.

State-of-the-art interfaces

Our goal is to create positive user experiences by designing well-functioning, clear, and visually pleasing user interfaces. We aim to produce systems that are intuitive and logical to use, a feature that is particularly pivotal for complex devices and production lines. Our easy-to-use interfaces make the work more motivating and increase productivity.

A responsible partner for 24/7 operations

We aim to forge long-term partnerships by offering the best service in the field. Thanks to our 24/7 operations service, our customers can rely on our automation solutions to function without interruption. Our updating and modernisation services guarantee that our solutions enjoy a long service life and can be adapted to any changes in the requirements and circumstances.

Elimination of risk – we bear responsibility for the comprehensive automation solution

All too often, automation of production processes involves several separate systems, without any guarantee of their compatibility. This also makes it difficult to identify the cause of any problems that arise in the functioning. When our experts create a comprehensive automation solution for your production, we can control the efficiency and functioning of the production operations holistically.

We aim to forge long-term partnerships, which form part of our product life-cycle management philosophy. Our experts are available to assist you at all times with any problems you may encounter. Rapid troubleshooting ensures that production downtime is kept to a minimum.

Cutting-edge technology, creating new opportunities

With an integrated, state-of-the-art camera system, your production processes can be easily optimised. The use of cameras enables smoother, more efficient, and less error-prone production-line processes.

More efficient production

Higher capacity

More consistent production

Fewer defects and minimal losses

Better quality control

Enhanced traceability

Easier integration

A decrease in manual work

Faster deliveries

Better ergonomics

We come into our own in challenging automation projects
