Purpose and goal
The project involved the migration with the aim to strengthen the experience trough a collaboration with Jönköping University (JU). The cooperation has strengthened the knowledge within materials, microanalysis and industrial in-situ techniques for melted metal characterization. The project has generated research based on both individual trials, but also the supervision of diploma workers and research students. The aim of the project - to reach a new level of collaboration between Bryne and organisation has succeeded.
Expected results and effects
Several initiatives to initiate cooperation between foundries, casting users and academia have been implemented. Companies throughout the value chain have participated in project proposals . The initiative has attracted smaller family-owned manufacturing companies that were not previously part of the research. The result is three initiated project which has led to three research applications where one has so far been granted. A new forum in the field of smelting technology and material quality has been initiated and planned.
Planned approach and implementation
During the project research initiatives has started, where one project has been accepted for founding. Another project is under evaluation. Educational materiel has been developed for the academy to learn more about industrial processes, as well for the industry to practice research results. During the project scientific publications and conferences has not been achieved but will future on be relevant as the cooperation evolve.
