Projects

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.

Secure Shortcut (See Cut)

2019-2019

Circular Production Systems and Maintenance, Resource-efficient production

SeeCut focuses on cost-efficient production systems for secure collection, analysis, visualization, storage and sharing of production data. The project addresses the integration of new signals and sensors. For advanced products, like jet engine components, collecting data during manufacturing and usage is essential for quality assurance and remanufacturing. The project goals are to identify key technical requirements related to production data for use in digitalized value chains, define means to ease the run-time integration of new signals and data streams from manufacturing machinery and sensors, and define how to securely and cost-efficiently share data through the value chains in circular production.

Tailored Tool Surfaces for Robust and Sustainable Hot Stamping

2015-2018

2030, Resource-efficient production

Tooling constitutes a significant part in the economical investment of the hot stamping process. Significant benefits in production economy and environmental benefits can be attained by improving the tribological performance in hot forming operations of automotive components. The main idea of this project is to create tailored tool surfaces on dies made from cheaper and easier to manufacture tool steel for the hot stamping of ultra-high strength steels.
