Strategic corporate functions are centralized, customer-relevant functions are further expanded locally

Since May 2022, all companies have been united under the MiCROTEC brand.

The company brands will continue to be managed as product brands in the joint product portfolio. MiCROTEC thus strengthens its competencies in the area of cross-process scanning and optimization solutions for the wood processing industry – from log to final product.

For the Linköping site in Sweden, the global “One Brand-One Product Portfolio” strategy means that the next step in the company’s positioning and organization is being taken. This step involves prioritizing and focusing on the domestic market. “As part of the MiCROTEC Academy, we have already launched a training program for our employees in Sweden to extend the knowledge and expertise within the complete product portfolio and will now intensify this further,” explains Stefan Nilsson, CEO of MiCROTEC Linköping. Key areas of the company, such as research and development, will be centralized at headquarters. Frank Jöst, CEO of MiCROTEC, concretizes: ” Innovation has been one of the central success factors of the brand since the foundation of MiCROTEC. Therefore, we want to strengthen this important area sustainably. Locally, we will dedicate ourselves even more intensively to customer needs. Our partner LOAB in Sweden will continue to operate together with us in the market area.”

On May 3rd, Microtec announced the official integration and inclusion of FinScan and WoodEye into the Microtec family. Following this news, Microtec presents now a new generation of longitudinal scanners for sawmill, remanufacturing and 2nd processing applications to the industry.

Meet the new range from Microtec

“Together with our colleagues in Italy, we have worked hard during the past year to be able to launch a new range of scanners , which combines the best of the two worlds from Woodeye and Goldeneye. With the new common platform for longitudinal scanning we will take wood scanning solutions to a whole new level”, says Stefan Nilsson, CSO of Microtec Linköping.

The range will thereby be defined by two product lines: the new Microtec Goldeneye scanners for softwood applications and the Woodeye scanners for hardwood applications. The scanners are based on a new common platform, developed by a joint team from Italy and Sweden.

The result of a common approach

The new common platform and movement technology combines the strengths and experience of both development teams, offering better precision in detection at higher speeds, with optimal resolution and extended possibilities to optimize for different material sizes and applications. It will also be delivered with a brand new control station that puts usability in focus and easily adapts to the comfort of the operator.

“We are also working on a common AI (Artificial Intelligence) platform that is integrated in the new product range. This AI solution represents the collaboration between all four Microtec companies in Italy, Finland, Sweden and the U.S.”, states Arianna Giudiceandrea, CSO of Microtec Headquarters in Bressanone.
