The Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters; assembly

The cluster for assembly is one of eight clusters within the Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters. The cluster focuses on research and development within assembly of complex products.

The Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters is an organisation with the objective to identify and initiate common areas for research that will strengthen the competitiveness of all manufacturing companies in Sweden. In 2020 RISE was commissioned to coordinate the clusters that at the same time have broadened their target group to all companies with manufacturing in Sweden.

Today there are 8 clusters focusing on different manufacturing expert areas. Four of the clusters cover manufacturing processes and four clusters cover areas that support all manufacturing processes.

The goal of the cluster for assembly is a competitive Swedish assembly industry where assembly of complex products is comparable in terms of efficiency with low-cost solutions.

The purpose of the cluster is to contribute to the development of product and process flexibility and to the development of new materials and manufacturing processes.

Priority research​ areas:

  • Process development/automation
  • People in production
  • Visualization

What is the advantage of participating in a cluster?

The aim is to develop economically and environmentally sustainable manufacturing systems capable of effectively providing the market with the innovative products of the future. Through the cluster's working methods, we strengthen Sweden's continued success as a sustainable industrial nation. You can win this by participating:

  • New valuable contacts for cooperation.
  • A support for own strategic research and development work.
  • Opportunity to set a strong common agenda with national and international influence.  
  • Early information and invitations to project cooperation.
