Two major disruptive trends – electrification and digitalization are changing customer preferences, leading to the probably most substantial transformation in the automotive industry we observed in decades. Finding a balance between customer’s requirements towards “zero-emission vehicle,” “connected car,” choice of materials, clarity of functions, and interface modes under the pressure of production time and cost are not easy. The AttributDo-project aims to help engineers create, define, verify and validate new and existing design features for new product development.

Enabling REuse, REmanufacturing and REcycling Within INDustrial systems (REWIND)

The REWIND project combines the principles of lean production and eco-efficiency in three industry pilots at Stena Recycling, Volvo AB and IKEA GreenTech. The objective is to retain the value embedded in materials with circular strategies (reuse, remanufacture, recycle, repurpose, etc.). Lessons learnt from the pilots will be used to develop educational tools for engineers and industry leaders to accelerate the uptake of best practices for circularity and sustainable production.

Lightweight electric vehicle assembly by friction stir welding (EVASTIR)

The EVASTIR project will support the Swedish automotive industry with the transition from internal combustion engine to battery electric vehicles, while introducing new sustainable manufacturing processes. This project will develop a welding process, FSW, to support design and fabrication a cost-effective, scalable, lightweight and crash-resistant battery tray for electric vehicles. The specific technical objectives of this project are to develop FSW procedures for dissimilar material joints of cast and extruded aluminium alloys and for high speed welding to 5m/min.

SCARCE II – Sensible Value Chain through Digitalised Planning, Materialhandling and Circular Economy

SCARCE II will develop a demonstrator to show how SMEs and associated value flows can increase efficiency, competitiveness, sustainability and internal collaboration through digitalisation. The goal is to show the value of a new digital solution. SCARCE focuses on two subcontractors in the value chain linked to Scania and Volvo. The demonstrator is a cloud-based solution that connects three test beds in the industry; Stena Industry Innovation Lab, Chalmers, RISE IVF lab, Mölndal and KTH's test bed in Södertälje with the help of Siemens, AFRY, Qbim, Virtual Manufacturing and EQPack.
