Partnership with Sandvik Materials Technology

3 November, 2020

Swerim has entered into a partnership with Sandvik Materials Technology (SMT), a world-leading manufacturer of high-performance stainless steels and special alloys. SMT's products are used in the most demanding industrial applications and include products such as pipe, bar, forging billets and blooms, strip steel and products for industrial heating.

The aim of the partnership is long-term collaboration, whereby SMT gains access to Swerim's leading-edge expertise in material properties, advanced structural analysis, testing and modelling, while Swerim is given the opportunity to build on its expertise in these areas.

“We have a long tradition of cooperation with Swerim and we see the partnership as a way of collaborating on an even deeper level within areas that are important for SMT. Research and innovation are key areas for SMT and we look forward to a productive long-term relationship,” says Tom Eriksson, VP Strategic Research, SMT.

“We are very pleased to have been given this opportunity and we look forward to even closer collaboration with SMT,” says Sten Wessman, research manager for stainless steel at Swerim.
