The importance of driving development

We are incredibly proud to work with the customers we work for. They are all leaders in their fields and renowned in terms of modern engineering, innovation and design. These companies also require a lot of their partners, which is why we consider it self-evident to be at the forefront of research and development.

Laboratory for materials analysis

Although the elements in the materials we use are always within the framework of the material specification, there are differences that may affect the tools in the machines. Consequently, we have invested in a laboratory for materials analysis where we examine the material under a microscope to identify any discrepancies. In this way, we can always select the material that is best suited to production, the machine and the final result.

Industry organisations and research

We are involved in industry organisations and research projects in order to provide our expertise as well as find out about the latest scientific knowledge. We are a driving force in Skärteknikcentrum, where companies, suppliers, research and development institutes and universities work together in the areas of technology, skills and productivity. We are also active in the RISE centre for purity that brings together the shared research and development needs of Swedish companies in the field of purity.

Furthermore, since the autumn of 2016 we have run a three-year pilot project together with Swerea IVF, Chalmers University of Technology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the Sahlgrenska Academy. The project looks at how vegetable oils could replace mineral oils within the machinery industry. The pilot project is a part of the Testbädd project run by Swerea IVF on future processing fluids within sustainable production.

Improving skills using eye tracking

We have been selected to participate in a pilot project involving eye tracking glasses. The glasses record the wearer’s focus to simplify and streamline the transfer of knowledge to new employees within high-tech industries. The three-year trial period started in August 2018. Uddeholm and Bufab Lann are also involved in the project, which is funded by Vinnova and Jernverket, as well as private companies that Gnosjö Automatsvarvning has joined forces with to provide co-financing.
