Lahti Mechatronics Network

Lahti Mechatronics Network is a network of the most active mechatronics companies in the Lahti area founded in 2000.

Tetsuro Mori of Japan coined the word Mechatronics in 1969 to describe the fact that the machinery also had to have intelligence in the form of electronics in addition to conventional mechanics. Later, the software has also been increasing in importance.

All three are still needed.

Lahti Mechatronics Network (or LMN for short) acts as a networking body, information source, and discussion platform for its member companies.

The current spearheads of our activity include the following:

  • different manufacturing methods
  • machining different materials
  • digitality in product development and manufacturing
  • robotics

The focus is on sharing information, knowledge, and experiences.


The annually elected management team directs the operations and activities of the Lahti Mechatronics Network. The Chairman and Vice-Chairman are elected every two years.
