The research conducted within the research programmes and initiatives in product and production development continuously results in new projects and findings. The projects are run in collaboration between universities, institutes and companies with great importance for Swedish industry. Here you can read more about ongoing and completed projects.

Infrastructure for Digitalization enabling industrialization of Additive manufacturinG – IDAG


Additive Manufacturing, Digital Platform, Industrialisation, Industrialisation

IDAG aim to identify gaps and propose actions for the digital infrastructure necessary to industrialize additive manufacturing technologies. Actors from a new type of value chain of manufacturing companies – from powder to product – collaborate with digital solution providers and researchers to understand the needs and articulate the necessary actions through analysis of industrial cases. The target is to deliver a description in the form of a roadmap for how these actions can be developed and provided in order to ensure flexible and scalable digital platforms for additive manufacturing value chains.

Sustainable Metal Powder Utilization in Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing


3D-Printing, Additive Manufacturing, Assembly, Powder Bed Fusion

This project intends to design and develop a new test methodology for evaluation of power flowability in powder bed fusion (PBF) systems. The test apparatus will simulate powder flow in PBF machines and can be used for optimizing the powder layering behavior for potential utilization of alternative powder qualities. Additionally, this equipment creates opportunities for both powder producers and AM part manufacturers to minimize powder waste and maximize material utilization.
