Muototera Oy




It was in the year 1988 when we manufactured the first waterjet cutting machine for our own production. Since that year Muototerä Oy has been leader of waterjet manufacturers in Finland.

Until now we have manufactured over 100 waterjet machines for different cutting applications. The whole production of our company is based on quick, reliable and flexible service. Years of experience have enabled us to develop a full line of innovative waterjet cutting machines and other waterjet equipment.

In short, we are focused to the needs of our customers and we do not manufacture often similar products. This has been our asset in the process of operation.

Muototerä is a family owned company found in 1953, Tampere Finland.

First products were cutting blades designed for shoe industry. Machine building started in the late 1960s with die presses and machinery business expanded to other production machines used in the shoe and leather industry.

vahoja vesileikkaus koneita historia vesileikkuri.jpg Few of our earliest waterjet machines from the 1980s

In the 1980s Muototerä started to manufacture production and automation solutions for other industries as well. It was year 1988 when we manufactured the first waterjet machine in Finland and since then Muototerä have been the lead producer of waterjet machines in Finland and Europe. During those times we also developed wood chip classifier for pulp industry and due to effective R&D work Muototerä still produces high technology automated chip classifiers.

Since the 1960s to this day, Muototerä have been designing and manufacturing special machinery for various industry needs. Own production with own mechanical, automation, and electricity engineering creates a customer service concept where experienced engineering office and state-of-the-art machinery works seamlessly.

Special applications

We design and manufacture special machines and production lines to meet the different industrial markets needs. These special machines are unique and very seldom we design or manufacture two-alike machines.

Design is based on the need of the customer, who cannot find a proper machine in the market. We present you our plan and offer how to solve the problem.

We have been solving production challenges several decades and for example developed following unique solutions:

  • Cable winding machine
  • Glass drilling machine
  • Automated lid positioning machine
  • Special clothing production line
  • Camouflage net production line
  • Sanding machine
  • Production line for military goods processing
  • Special conveyer lines
  • Ice hockey stick manufacturing line

In several cases the engineered and manufactured special machine is integrated to an existing production line.

Steel Blackening

Blackening (coating of black oxide steel) is a method which is used to generate a black surface on metal parts. Metal parts are boiled in water a solution of active substances including sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and sodium nitrate (NaNO3). After the process, all parts are impregnated with silicon oil.

Blacking is well suited for a variety of machine parts, tools, and gears. The surface of the product becomes smooth. The process is fast and Muototerä offers fast delivery times and excellent surface quality. Maximum product size in our blackening line:

  • Length 780 mm
  • Width 480 mm
  • Height 300 mm

We offer also corrosion removal service before the actual blackening process. The packaging of the product is done with special attention in order to ensure scratch free deliveries.

Muototerä's blacking line does not pose a danger to the environment.

Please contact us and ask for a quotation on steel blackening.
