Research programmes and networks
Swerim manage several research programmes, research consortiums and networks. Swerim's research programs, research consortia and networks are the basis of our contacts with industry.
By gathering different players with interests in the same research area, we are able to find efficient solutions to joint challenges. Many research projects are initiated through collaborative research programmes, research consortiums or networks.
Swerim runs three research programs where the member companies together formulate solutions to common challenges. Several research projects are on-going within the framework of each program.
Three research programs
- Heating and metalworking
- Material development and manufacturing processes
Within our research programmes we create regular networking opportunities for partners in industry, public administrations, materials suppliers and researchers. This includes project meetings, seminars, conferences and courses.
Our networks is a founding piece of our good relations with the industry sector. The networks engage hundreds of companies, large and small, from different sectors and industries. Joining a network means increased possibilities, expanded network and access to the recent updates on knowledge and know-how.
Centre for Joining and Structures (CJS) – A platform for research and development within the field of joining and structures.
Low Alloy Steels and Casting – A research consortium for research and development of cutting edge knowledge and long term development of steel making.
Metallography and Microanalysis – A research consortium for research and development of new and existing methods within metallography.
Non-Ferrous Metals – A research consortium focussing on product- and process development for non-ferrous metals.
Powder Metallurgy – A research consortium focussing on the impact of alloying elements, contamination and process parameters on microstructure and characteristics of powder materials.
Process Monitoring – A research consortium for companies interested in the development of techniques for monitoring of industrial processes.
Stainless – A platform for research and development within stainless steels and nickel-base alloys, focussing on the entire product chain – from materials production to the end-consumer.
Computational Tools for Alloy Design – A forum for users of thermodynamic and kinetic calculations for process and alloy development.
Swedish Arena for Additive Manufacturing of Metals – The Swedish Arena for Additive Manufacturing of Metals contributes to the development of technology and knowledge to reach the full potential of AM.
