ProcessIT Innovations was awarded the title of Vinnväxtvinnare by VINNOVA, thereby being guaranteed financial support over a period of ten years.

VINNVÄXT is a programme that takes the form of a competition for regions. The aim is to promote sustainable growth by developing internationally competitive research and innovation environments in specific growth fields.

ProcessIT Innovations Annual Report



2009-11-13 Electrotech works with researchers to create new simulation tool
In spring 2009, Electrotech installed antennae on the conveyors at the ore port of Narvik in Norway in order to follow the flow of pellets from LKAB’s process plant in Kiruna, Sweden. Now the company has gone on to train LKAB’s designers in the operation of a simulation tool that facilitates installations using the system.
2009-11-12 Corrvision provides a globally-unique way of controlling the flatness of corrugated cardboard
“Using our monitoring system, we can now for the first time in world history ensure automatic control of the flatness of corrugated cardboard inline in the corrugator,” says Christer Söremark, part-owner of Corrvision Technology, a company set up in partnership with ProcessIT Innovations.
2009-11-10 Remote-controlled driverless tracked loader developed by researchers
In ten minutes, the temperature in the cab of a tracked loader can rise by 70ºC when it is handling hot slag at a temperature of around a thousand degrees generated when remelting steel scrap at the Ovako steelworks in Smedjebacken. A remote-controlled driverless tracked loader has been tested in order to release drivers from having to work in such a hazardous environment.
2009-06-25 The border is no barrier
The efforts to enhance the process industry in northern part of Finland and Sweden have made the process industry, the SME:s and the researchers in the region come together.
2009-06-22 Unique collaboration in northern Europe
Thanks to funding from EU two highly technical projects are up and running in an interregional collaboration between northern Finland and Sweden. One is a unique solution for inspection of industrial oils. The other is a Vision System Platform for industrial applications.
2009-06-01 Using research to find new solutions for companies
Committed researchers who contribute to new practical solutions among the companies of the region – that is the vision of one of ProcessIT’s research managers, Professor Jonny Holmström. To fine-tune the work, he gets help Atlanta, USA, where one of his most successful colleagues in process innovation works.
2009-05-11 Development work across frontiers
In Kemi, Finland, is Digipolis, a technology centre with a working method similar to that of ProcessIT Innovations. They work together to create new products and services for basic industry.
2009-05-11 Initiative for regional development
A crystal-clear priority that is worth every single krona invested. This is the opinion of some of the representatives of the four coastal municipalities and County Councils that are involved and support the initiatives of ProcessIT.
2009-04-11 Creative environment will generate new optical measurement systems
There is a very great need for new optical measurement systems in Norrland industrial companies. ProcessIT Innovations is involved, and is investing money in a development laboratory, Adopticum, in Skellefteå. This is an initiative that will give the region an even stronger industrial base.
2009-03-31 ProcessIT day encourages new project ideas
ProcessIT Innovation’s annual information day, which was held this year on 11 March in Skellefteå, brought together around 80 researchers and representatives from basic industry and IT companies for a day of dialogue and discussions on joint projects.
