Ateno Oy is a company established in 1999 by brothers Juhani and Kari Koivisto. The company, with a focus on subcontracting and with operations in Evijärvi, South Ostrobothnia, currently employs approximately 95 people. Ateno Oy offers its customers high-quality, cost-effective laser cutting and bending services as well as the most modern tube profile cutting services on the market. Over the years, Ateno has grown from a shop with one waterjet cutting machine to a modern plant with some of the best machinery in the industry representing cutting edge technology.
In recent years, Ateno has invested in its operations widely. The company has, among other things, increased its production area by 3,000 m², expanded its welding facilities, and acquired several fiber lasers and plano-milling machines. However, the most important recent acquisition is the new tube laser MAZAK 3D Fabri Gear 400 lll which has transformed the company's tube laser operations. The latest machine was acquired to make the service offering more versatile and to support competitiveness and service security in terms of the further processing of SSAB's tube products. The tube laser can be used to cut up to 300x300 mm square tubes and 406 mm diameter round tubes, while the maximum thickness for structural hollow sections is 16 mm. This tube laser can be used to produce pieces that are 15 m in length. Ateno also has two smaller tube laser cutting machines, Trumpf Tube 5000 fiber tube laser and Trumpf Tube 7000 tube laser.
Ateno offers its clients modern tube profile cutting services. With its machine stock, the company can reduce the work phases in further processing or machining. Tube laser cutting enables making precise perforations, holes and notches on tubes and profiles quickly and efficiently. One of the best features available is 3D cutting. A turning cutting head enables cutting bevels on tube profiles. The maximum angle of machine-cut bevels is 45 degrees. It is possible to thread during the cutting process, making the turnaround time of parts faster.
