The Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters; component manufacturing

The cluster for component manufacturing is one of eight clusters within the Swedish Production Cluster. The cluster focuses on research and development in advanced manufacturing of components for the automotive industry.

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 component manufacturing cluster is devoted to advancing the manufacture of engineering components, mainly in metals. Focus is on development of effective, flexible and robust processing techniques used in manufacturing components, materials, tools and machines. To this end coverage is given to a range of subjects from process and production planning to quality assurance.

Component manufacturing covers a range of technology areas that includes:

  • Forging and casting
  • Machining systems, processes and Tools
  • Heat treatment and surface engineering
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Materials
  • Machine capability and process robustness
  • Process planning and development
  • Remanufacturing for Circular economy

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 gain 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.
