The Solution

A vacuum molded mudguard for the N series tractors, developed in collaboration with Valtra’s designers.

The goal was to create a light, impact resistant and easy-to-install mudguard that also looks visually appealing.

Our success is reflected in the long lifetime of the product – different versions of the mudguard have been produced since 2005, and the manufacturing is still ongoing. Lokari’s know-how has also been noted in Brazil, so mudguards and mudguard extensions are exported there on a weekly basis.

The Lynx snowmobiles’ cargo boxes are made using injection molding. The entire process of putting the boxes together takes place in Rauma, and they are delivered to the customer’s production and additional equipment sales in accordance with the JIT concept. In addition to the cargo boxes, several of BRP’s snowmobiles and ATVs include many parts vacuum molded by us.

The Solution

Jaw crushers are used to pre-crush rocks and ore in harsh mining site conditions. The customer was looking to replace their traditional metal plate belt cover. The goal was to design a belt cover that is light enough for a single maintenance technician to remove and replace it in the field. At the same time, the part had to be able to withstand impacts from the rocks, vibration from the machinery, and extreme weather varying from the hot Indian sun to the freezing temperatures of the North. The color, of course, had to be recognizable as Metso’s trademark beige. The part is almost 2.5 meters long and made from 8 mm thick sheet by vacuum molding. The sheets are made using one of Lokari’s three extrusion lines. Lokari produces about a dozen different covers and casings for the customer’s rock crushers and separators in Finland and the Far East.

Molok Oy

Molok Oy

Used by millions of people every day, Molok is a waste management solution that protects the environment and saves time and money. Molok Oy represents Finnish design and production, it manufactures the systems in Nokia and employs approximately 70 people.

The Solution

The flexible MolokDomino system consists of square-shaped modules, and it offers an efficient way to utilize space for waste collection. Since most of the product is physically located underground, the lid, manufactured by Lokari, is the most visible part of the product. Since the waste containers are emptied through the top, the lid must be easy to remove and light to handle. During use, it must fit well and tightly in order to prevent odor issues and keep pests at bay. Since they will be installed in public spaces, the aesthetic aspect of these waste collection containers was also a key point during the design process. As the vacuum molded lids will be used in dozens of countries, a stabilizer that provides UV protection has been added to the raw material during the production process.
