The cluster for forming and joining is one of eight clusters within the Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters. The cluster focuses on research and development in forming and joining to meet the challenges of new and innovative materials.
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 eight 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 cluster for forming and joining works with development of technology to meet the challenges of new and innovative materials, lightweight and hybrid structures. This includes composites, alloy metal and high strength steels.
The focus is on developing efficient, flexible and robust manufacturing techniques for manufacturing components, materials, tools and machines. This includes a range of topics from material selection, development of manufacturing processes, process and production planning to quality assurance.
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:
AP&T, Ferruform, Gestamp Hardtech, Högskolan Väst, RISE, Scania, Swerim, Volvo Cars Göteborg, Volvo Cars Olofström, Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Trucks
The cluster welcomes more companies! For more information, contact Johan Berglund.
