We’re passionate about automation, and we enjoy demanding customers and challenging applications. We always work with commitment and devotion toward creative solutions.

The companies in 3BUTTON GROUP have many years’ experience of robots, mechanics, fixturing and processes. We complement each other and work together like a well-oiled machine toward the goal of helping our customers increase their competitiveness in their markets with fast, safe and user-friendly automation solutions.


One of our customers expressed the need for user friendliness in a telling way: “We’re a three-button factory. We need a start button, a stop button and a reset button to use when something goes wrong. Any other buttons are bad news.” This goal-oriented customer’s statement can be said to encapsulate our business idea and what we offer while confirming that we have the right idea. As system-builders we need to make very high demands on ourselves if we want to continue to help Swedish industries be competitive. Which we do.


Keeping multi-shift production going at the highest availability, and doing it long-term using staff without technical knowledge places high demands on user-friendliness.

Our strength as an automation provider is that we build sophisticated technical solutions that anyone can use, making for problem-free production every day of the year.

We also enable fast switching, easy restarts and help with troubleshooting. With the help of our intuitive panels, the operator can easily start, stop and run the facility, and can receive guidance in correcting errors and doing automatic restarts in an organized way.

Together with our customers, some of Sweden’s most innovative industrial companies, often subcontractors to the automotive industry, we have designed facilities that can be run reliably for very long periods of time with no stops.


In the automotive industry, production is often run 24/7 with both regular and temporary staff. Therefore, a large part of our projects are devoted to making the systems as easy to use as possible.

When everything works perfectly, start and stop are enough. But reality is something else, and there will be mistakes, disturbances and unexpected events.  Our automation solutions are easy to reset and restart for that reason.
