Optoelectronics, Innovation, and Research
We are one of the very first technological spin-offs of the Bruno Kessler Foundation (formerly IRST), a reference research centre of excellence for Trentino and Europe. Over the years, our company grew into a full-fledged business with over 50 employees, with customers from the industrial, aerospace, and green sectors. Nevertheless, we maintained our commitment to research and development and continued to strengthen our scientific collaboration with FBK, cultivating high specialization in supplying the market with silicon devices.
The current structure of the Group is the result of targeted acquisitions, the take-off of innovative startups, the establishment of newco of geographical significance, and other transactions that were perfected thanks to the intertwined basic principle of technological innovation with the entrepreneurial passion of the founders.
A history of research and innovation
- 2011 - Optoi began its collaboration with the European Space Agency for manufacturing satellite sensors and components. It is currently accredited with the research and production of highly specialised aerospace devices , guaranteed by the most stringent safety and reliability standards.
- 2012 - Optoi equips itself with a Class 1000 cleanroom (according to FED STD 209E) or ISO 6 (according to EN ISO 14644-1:2008) required for microelectronic assemblies. The reference standards in manufacturing are MIL-STD-883, MIL-STD-750 and the visual inspection standard ESCC Basic Specification No. 2045000.
- 2015 - Our technology and know-how are brought to the service of significant projects in the biomedical field by participating in some relevant European projects. The in-house division brings together sensor technology, genomics, and biochemistry, exploring their vast application potential.
- 2017 - Understanding the importance of fostering sustainability, we also specialised in the field of green technologies , sensors for the environment and monitoring indoor parameters related to air and electromagnetic waves.
- 2020 - The Group celebrated twenty-five years of activity by revamping the graphic line of its brand and adopting a more streamlined, rational and compact corporate structure.
The Founding Partners
|Engineer, founder, and CEO of Optoi, Mr Maglione guides the company’s growth by making it the industrial holding company of a group of highly specialised businesses with a distinct problem-solving approach, with a focus on customised solutions for applications in the fields of industrial automation, biomedical, environmental monitoring and quality of life. Alongside Optoi, in collaboration with other national and international companies and entrepreneurs, he energetically devotes himself to the development of an innovative ecosystem, fostering the creation of startups and newco.
He is the founder and president of Industrio Ventures, a private industrial accelerator, which, thanks to the logistical support of the brand new Polo Meccatronica in Rovereto (Province of Trentino) and a network of excellent entrepreneurs, invests in hardware startups, focusing on the great potential of Made in Italy, with great emphasis on the sectors of mechatronics, IoT, Industry 4.0, and robotics.
He is a board member of local companies operating in the green sector, such as Habitech. He is a member of the General Council of Confindustria in Trento and president of the IT and digital technologies section for the four-year 2020-2024 period.
|Mr Scaramuzza is the founder and CEO of Optoi. His professional career is distinguished by a constant commitment to the systemic integration of microelectronic, electronic, optical and mechanical sensors.
He made his debut working for Eltra, an influential Italian sensor manufacturer, for which he oversaw the internationalisation process and the opening of production and sales branches in China and other Asian countries, South America, the United States, and Central-Eastern Europe, of which he became partner and CEO. He followed the acquisition process of Eltra by an Italian investment fund and the subsequent entry of Eltra into the Avago-Broadcom Group, where he still is the CEO, also managing the integration of the multinational with other companies.
Then the step towards the establishment of the Optoi Group, which brings together his technical and managerial experience, thereby developing new opportunities and synergies. Oriented towards the setting up of companies with high technological content, he manages various initiatives focused on sustainability, from an economic and eco-social perspective.
Optoi firmly believed in a business model based on supporting the customer in industrial and process problem-solving. The Group makes no secret of its commitment to quality and customization over volume. This choice is the basis of the agility and skill with which our companies know how to present themselves to the industrial partner for basic silicon processing right up to the most sophisticated and technologically advanced sensor requirements.
Today, Optoi enjoys an “electronic” and a “microelectronic” soul that complements each other. The extensive derivations of photonics (single and absolute position sensors) form part of the daily search for performance and improvement in our cleanroom, where carbon comes to life and microns become the prevailing unit of measurement.
We analyse our partner’s request and intuition, framing it through technical-economic feasibility analysis and take care of the design step by step; we manage the engineering aspect and carry out the industrialization of the production process. All this is done in-house, in our operational offices.
We want to strengthen our role as a technology and professional partner in electronics and microelectronics, aspiring to excellence in on-demand development, production and packaging of electronic sensors and measuring systems.
