Arrow GEMA

Factory’s tasks and development under control with one system

GEMA is the guaranteed easiest and most cost-effective way to start developing production according to the Lean principles. This is an MES-level system solution that allows you to engage and motivate the production operator in development.

The basis for GEMA is the most modern machine data collection on the market, and with the desired features it can be grown into a full-scale MES system. GEMA offers production managers a visual and open way of managing production.

The most easiest-to-use MES on the market

Digitise your production data and enable the continual improvement of your production towards Lean.

Analyse and develop with the help of gathered data
Lead manufacturing and people

Plug’n’Play – Production data from the cloud to your browser

The paperchase era is over, and digitising data does not get any easier than this. A range of sensor and logic solutions help export machine data directly to our cloud service, from where GEMA visualises and refines the data further so it can be enriched by an operator. In real time, reliably, from anywhere in the world. Just Plug’n’Play.

GEMA is the operator’s best friend

For the operator, GEMA is a user’s best friend. GEMA tells you, in a clear, visual way, what needs to be done next in production. It offers you digital work instructions and a place for you to report your observations on deviations. You can also make development suggestions. That means no more relying on memory or data becoming linked to specific people!

Digitalising quality control

With GEMA, it is possible to solve quality control during manufacturing. The system guides operators towards making quality inspections, measurements and monitoring on their own initiative in time. Inspections can be carried out when the order is ready or according to the number of machine runs. Deviations are reported, which makes traceability and resolving complaints easy.

ONE interface

Forget the hassle of working with several different systems. GEMA gathers in one place all the information streams that the running, development and management of manufacturing need. One interface informs, guides and gives feedback on success, in a clear, visual way.

KPI's at the touch of a button

The key figures gathered about manufacturing give important productivity data. Calculating key figures is often hard work. GEMA offers a solution for this: the most important production meters for any period will be available at the touch of a button.


GEMA runs smoothly on any device supporting a web browser. You don’t need to install any apps to use it.

“Over the past three years, we have improved the efficiency of our factory by eight per cent. Maint and Machine Track are an important part of the continuous development by which we want to raise our usability and our total utilization rate. In such development, any information we can acquire from the machinery and basic functions needs consistent increase”

"Before, things were corrected by a voice vote. The person who shouted with the loudest voice got his things put right. Now we have uncompromising information in our use and on the basis of it we can put things in the order of importance. We sit by ARROW data every morning and examine how the previous day has gone; every morning Machine Track gives the data with which it is good to start a new day"

”Implementing was simple and we were able to complete the process in a week. The new system was received very well by the personnel, and there have been no complaints whatsoever. This is certainly due to the fact that Machine Track is easy to use and offers concrete assistance in performing the work. We don’t have to record any disturbances in the production on paper any more, for example”

“The monitoring of the machines has resulted in a capacity growth of as much as 20% with some of the machines. The capacity could also still be increased. This potential could not have been seen without the automated control”

“The best quality of ARROW Machine Track is clearness. At a single glance you see which lines are currently in operation. You can also see the recent operation history, that is, the availability during the last few hours”

“For example, a couple of years ago we implemented a development project on the bulkhead line based on Lean procedures, in which we utilised the data collected by Machine Track to optimise production. As a result, the production of bulkhead metres was doubled. Now we have implemented Lean methods on other production lines as well”

Petri Uotila, Hull Production Development Coordinator, Meyer Turku Oy

“When the actual events are visible, it is easy to handle information and to use it in decision making – which is now based on reliable figures. In situations such as these, information jotted down on paper based on a gut feeling is not enough. However, data gathered in this new way leaves no room for explanations or speculations"
