It helps us keep track of the whole; there is one system that receives all the data. This is not just a tool for measuring and control, but also for development and management.

The challenge: To enhance production management

With more than 60 million liters of alcoholic beverages flowing through the production line each year with 800 different names, the factory unit must be revved up to the maximum. Opened in 1888, Anora’s Rajamäki alcoholic beverage factory supplies beverages around the world. The lines pack products from top brands, such as Koskenkorva Vodka. In addition to bottling, the Rajamäki factory manufactures mixed drinks, such as Jaloviina and various liqueurs.

The solution: Increased power with Machine Track by Pinja

In 2016, Anora’s Rajamäki factory began a major information system overhaul as part of the Renewal project. The MES system Machine Track and daily management tool Shop Floor Manager delivered by Pinja played an important role in the Renewal project, as the plant’s five bottling lines and two boxed wine packaging lines were brought under modern production management.

The main goal of the project was to improve the measurement and reporting of production and to develop the management of the production plant on this basis. In addition, special attention was paid to quality management and its development.
