WELCOME to ICED21 in Gothenburg, Sweden!
The paintshop is often a bottleneck in production and the processes are fine-tuned based on testing on numerous prototypes. To meet the future demands there is a great need to improve the product preparation process. The aim is to develop methods, techniques and software, and supporting measurement methodology, for simulation of paint curing in IR and convective ovens. The goal is to assist the industry to further develop and optimize their surface treatment to be more energy and cost efficient; to have a shorter lead time in product development; and to give a higher product quality.
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 new SABACE project, which stands for Sustainable Automated Assembly for Customized Products, focuses on solving dynamic needs in assembly systems.
The Vinnova-financed project Test bed LIGHTest was completed in the spring of 2021. In the four years that the project has been running, thirteen industrial pilot projects and five assignments together with small and medium-sized companies have been completed. The majority of the projects (70 percent) have led to direct business benefits and implementation. LIGHTest is of particular interest to members of the Manufacturing Cluster for Forming and Joining, but also to others.
Increased digitization of production has many potential benefits, but increased knowledge of standards is important for companies to be able to take advantage of the opportunities. It is a challenge to relate to the large number of standards and standardization work that is underway. To meet these needs, this forum is created for Swedish industry.
On 5-6 May, it was time for this year's edition of the Manufacturing R&D Cluster Conference with the theme: Sustainable manufacturing - green value chains. The conference set a new record with 485 participants.
Produktionsanalys med fokus på produktivitetsfrågor, speciellt studier av manuellt arbete.
