Manufacturing Technology’s activity spans over a wide field - from machining processes to productivity analyses. Focus is to develop machining processes which improve the properties of the product and also contribute to an improved productivity. The ability for the different machining processes to create functional surfaces is of primary research interest.
The research is founded on a solid scientific ground and is experimentally based. Metal cutting is the dominant process in the research of the group but also water jet cutting has a large attention. The research group has access to a well equipped laboratory both regarding machine tools and instruments for advanced analyses
Concerning productivity the group develops methods and tools both for analysing and utilisation of the productivity potential at manufacturing companies.
The research group has comprehensive share of the education at al levels and also a net of industry contacts with many ramifications.
Head of the reasearch group is Anders Kinnander
