Research develops additive manufacturing

Sandvik participates in a three-year research collaboration, initiated by the University West in Trollhättan, Sweden. The focus is on additive manufacturing and creating cutting edge knowledge about high temperature materials.

In March 2017, the project SUMAN-Next was launched at the University West in collaboration with industrial partners, including Sandvik.

"There are already exciting results, both about processes and material impact, and I am convinced that the project will help to move forward the position of additive manufacturing," says Peter Harlin, chairman of the project's steering group and Senior R&D Engineer at Sandvik, a leading partner in the project.

The project stretches over three years and focuses on creating a basic understanding of the relationship between process, material structure and material properties. Other companies participating in the research project are GKN Aerospace, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery and Arcam AB.

The research at the University West focuses on metallic materials. Sandvik is a world-leading supplier of high alloyed metal powder for additive manufacturing and has a center for additive manufacturing in Sandviken, Sweden, which gives the company a platform that covers the entire value chain.
