ODIN Engineering sketches inventions that are not possible – yet

ODIN Engineering has been in business for 60 years. However, that is not what the machinery manufacturer focuses on when they invite to an open house event the 1 October. ODIN is looking ahead, and the theme is therefore: ODIN Engineering towards 2081. For that occasion, ODIN has developed sketches for 12 inventions, which are not possible now, but which ODIN may one day develop.

At ODIN Engineering, you are not like everyone else. The company has been in business for 60 years. However, this is not what is marked when ODIN invites customers, partners, and friends of the house to a reception the 1 October. The theme of the day will be ODIN Engineering towards 2081. Mads S. Rasmussen, CEO at ODIN, says:

”The past is nice, but the future is more interesting. At ODIN we always look ahead. Towards new technologies, innovation, and smarter ways to develop business-critical machines and solutions for our customers, which also last for many years both technologically and mechanically. That’s why we’re celebrating ODIN’s next 60 years, ODIN towards 2081, instead of looking back. It’s a look into the crystal ball.”

Futuristic inventions that are not possible – yet

So how does ODIN Engineering illustrate its business in 2081? The Slagelse company has had a wide team of employees to contribute at a workshop, where they jointly came up with 12 futuristic inventions. The world has not seen these yet, but perhaps these are solutions that ODIN will one day develop. Some of the future solutions or inventions may appear a bit wild but Mads S. Rasmussen emphasises that ODIN often works with wild ideas as part of the process to find the optimal solutions for our customers.

”Some people might think that it’s just for fun when we spend a whole day on such a project. But this is actually how we work on a daily basis when we develop solutions for our customers. We gather a large team to generate ideas. There are no stupid suggestions, and we build on each other’s creative thoughts,” says Mads S. Rasmussen continuing:

”ODIN’s mantra is that it’s easier to tame a wild idea than it is to invigorate a weak one. This is how it is today, and this is how it will be in 2081. We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and what isn’t possible. This is how we work and thrive.”

ODIN sketches solutions useful for the community

The 12 future solutions all have a useful purpose for the community, Mads S. Rasmussen explains. If you want to see all the ideas, you have to attend the open house at ODIN Engineering the 1 October, where they will be presented. Here you can also learn how ODIN has reached the solutions and what is lacking in knowledge and technology before ODIN can build them.

However, you can get some idea of it here, where we unveil one idea:

Atomic waste dissolver: The machine breaks down waste into atoms. The closer to the elements in the material, the better the possibilities for recycling.

Open House on Elmedalsvej in Slagelse

The open house event is characterised by the nerdy machine building house, as ODIN also likes to call itself, – from invitation on SoMe to email invitations. Visit the company’s website to see the nice invitation for open house. Note that instead of physical gifts, ODIN prefers that a donation be made to the Danish Cancer Society for the benefit of research. A disease that has affected many people – both as a cancer patient, as a relative or colleague. The account number is: reg. nr: 2524 kontonr: 9025 999 921.
