Solution ecosystem with leading industry players
To provide a comprehensive Industrial Internet offering for our customers, we are building an Industrial Internet partner ecosystem. The ecosystem brings leading industry players together to co-create new applications and services -and to offer superior performance for our customers, compared to each actor operating independently.
One of our ecosystem partners is Tieto, a leading provider of MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems for pulp and paper industry customers. Through this cooperation and our complementary offerings, our customers’ production process and business data can be integrated and optimized for the customers’ benefit.
We also have an Industrial Internet ecosystem partnership with Kemira, a global chemicals company. The purpose of the partnership is to bring added value to pulp and paper customers by combining the know-how of the two companies in utilizing process data to improve the customers’ processes.
Valmet and Fabio Perini, a producer of machinery and integrated systems for tissue paper converting and packaging, have recently started an Industrial Internet ecosystem partnership to strengthen collaboration in the tissue industry. The partnership combines Valmet's comprehensive tissue making technology and process optimization know-how with Fabio Perini’s strong expertise in complete solutions for converting and packaging machines as well as in the converting process and technology. The two companies’ solid expertise combined with data from tissue mills and converting plants will provide a new dimension to tissue mill optimization.
Valmet’s and the ecosystem partners’ combined knowledge and integrated date enable a more comprehensive view on mill or plant level performance optimization. Together with our ecosystem partners, we also develop new value adding data driven applications and services.
