The aim of this AVANS project named AMECO is to develop a 2-year Master's Programme in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering with Co-op education strategy. The programme is planned to start in Sept. 2018.
In this research project the development of thermography as a method for inspection of welds with limited access will be conducted. The objective of the project is to enable weld inspection of hidden welds in aero engines, reduce the inspection time and increase the detection ratio and sizing precision. The goal for the project is to present a system able to locate, quantify and size weld defects such surface cracks.
This project called Biogas 2020 includes the establishment of a platform for biogas in the entire ÖKS-region.
The research group that is working on virtual manufacturing has, through many years' work, produced a simulation model for an entire sheet metal press line in the automotive industry. A whole production section can now be programmed off line.
Project title: Lean Exterior Brazing -II (LEX-B)
The project shall create prerequisites for the establishment of a national pilot facility and open arena for the development of sorting technologies and business models for better usage of textile waste.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is considered to be an example of digitalization in manufacturing as it enables production of a physical component from a digital model.
Through the group's earlier research, there is a simulation model for an entire sheet metal press line in the automotive industry.
FATigue strength improvement of welded high strength steels towards LightWeight design (FAT-LW)
The goal of this research project is to develop a flexible tool-box for welding industry to be able to arrive at certified weld quality.
Companies are getting more and more global in order to be closer to the end-market. This put great demands in a well-structured information system.
The project aims in strengthening the international networking within automation of laser beam welding (LBW) and additive manufacturing (AM) by facilitating for mobility between two strong research environments within the innovation-intensive “Sustainable production” area.
Industrial production is becoming more complex and demands for increased digitalization, sustainability and new professional competences are growing. Digitalization creates opportunities for development of new combinations of physical production and services, which results in increased specialized customer customization. This in turn calls for a more flexible production system with shorter lead-time and personnel that have skills and competences to quickly adapt and make use of new digital applications for everyday work practice.
This research project focuses on laser metal deposition using powder as an additive (LMD-p).
This project aims to increase the use of aluminum alloys using innovative laser welding tools, as well as to significantly reduce the costly pre-tests in the welding of alloys in the production development phase.
This research project will develop recommendations on welding in high strength steel. This in turn will make new light weight design solutions for trucks possible.
The project goal is to extend application of the EBM and SLM techniques to next materials and applications in gas turbine components.
Forced or self-excited vibrations during machining are major causes affecting surface finish and dimensional precision of machined parts, as well as tool wear and component breakdowns.
Project title MERIT - Manufacturing Education and Research with Information Technology
This research project aims to develop a new type of abhesion multilayer system based on the combination of layers with different mechanical/physical properties that can provide customized features for wear, friction, adhesion and wettability.
A project about Nanostructured Thermal Barrier Coatings.
Depleting fossil fuel resources, economic competitiveness, and environmental concerns have compelled to explore new avenues to improve efficiency of automotive engines.
This research project concerns Gas-Shielded arc welding. The aim of the projects is to study a couple of the different methods and to increase the knowledge about how they can be used in an optimal way.
PROSAM was a project financed by Västra Götalands Regionen (VGR) during 2014-2015 and had a focus in strategic collaboration of research efforts within production technology between University West (HV) and Chalmers.
RMS was a VINNOVA MERA programme, project 2006/00100 Robotstyrd Metallbyggnad via Smältning, coordinated by Volvo Aero. University West was involved in process development, off-line programming, automation and validation.
The project aims to contribute to the goal of flexible manufacturing processes through demonstration of innovative laser welding solutions.
Superior Corrosion Performance of Coatings through Control of Chemistry, Microstructure and Architecture
The automotive and aerospace industry is today in need of automated non-destructive testing due to an increased demand for inspection of manufactured parts.
A research school within the area of production technology was 2012 initiated at University West and expanded 2014.
The automotive industry is suffering on poor capacity utilization, although the utilization of machines has been increased up to 90%, the overall usage is only about 50%–70%.
Suspension spraying and novel material design- a key technology for radically improved properties of thermal barrier coatings.
The KK profile "SUMAN" started 1st of April 2010. The project engages three areas of research at University West; thermal spraying, welding, and automation. 15 projects within the three arenas are running in close soproduction with industries. The profile engages 10 professors, 6 senior researchers and 5 experienced engineers, a vibrant academic environment that includes national and international exchange, participation in research networks, seminars, undergraduate and graduate education.
The aim of the project is to strengthen innovation processes, competence maintenance and knowledge within sustainable production within manufacturing companies in the regional area.
Enhanced on-line and post-production defect detection
GKN Aerospace, Swerea SWECAST and University West in Sweden will work together with the German titanium casting supplier ARCONIC Bestwig with the target of improving the design of engine structures for improved castability
The aim of this research project is to develop and verify a model for laser welding of Alloy 718 and Haynes® 282®.
The project aims at increase the flexibility for low series production, facilitate introduction of new products or new materials in robotized laser beam welding as well as securing a high and consistent weld quality.
