For the twenty-ninth time, it is time to gather assembly Sweden to gain knowledge about developments and news in the field for one day. This year's assembly conference is unique as a conference in Sweden in the field of production.
The project - Strategies and Standards for Smart Sw edish Industry - has aims at strengthening Swedens position as a leading country in the area of Smart Industry.
In order to meet the national requirements within the Swedish building sector you must have a cost efficient, scalable and integrated solution for heating, cooling and electricity.
Today the battery cells in the electric vehicles are not being used in an optimal way, especially in regards to large battery systems which contains a large amount of battery cells. Here, there is the possibility of making noticeable savings if only a method is found where the battery cells in question can be used more optimally.
Carbon-nanostructures has awoken a new interest in the development of, amongst others, carbonbased additives for lubricants and refrigerants. The last decade has brought new focus to carbonmaterials due to its high chemical stability, superior characteristics, and low environmental impact in comparison to the sulphurbased additives that are today included in lubricants.
Plastic is a common topic of debate, often from a negative perspective. This is often justified, but not always, as plastic still is a key material with many unique and highly in demand characteristics.
The highest priority for wind power today is to reduce the total cost of electricity production, i.e. SEK per kWh. One of the components which affects the cost the most is the wind turbines' rotor blades. They require large amounts of expensive material and are largely made by hand in one, long piece. This leads to significant challenges in both manufacturing and transport.
In the PDA newsletter Fall 2022 we highlight the development of our agenda for product development towards a sustainable future, upcoming PhD courses, conferences and the General Assembly for SIG PM, planned in Skellefteå 21-22 March 2023.
In order to identify which components are suitable for additive manufacturing (AM), both technical and business selection criteria needs to be used. The purpose of this project is to investigate the possibility of expanding the technical selection criteria with business values such as reduced inventory costs, transport and environmental impact.
Clarissa González is a PhD candidate at Chalmers University of Technology, doing research about servitization and exploring how service-based business models in combination with digital technologies can provide advantages from an environmental and economic perspective.
