Manufacturing Technology Norwegian Catapult Centre
Manufacturing Technology Norwegian Catapult Centre (MTNC) is a so-called catapult or testing centre where industrial companies can test new technology and new solutions. The centre is lead by SINTEF Manufacturing on behalf of NCE Raufoss.
NCE Raufoss Omstillingsmotor
Omstillingsmotoren will stimulate the Norwegian industry and Norwegian SMEs to become greener, smarter and more innovative. The project is lead by SINTEF Manufacturing on behalf of NCE Raufoss.
Development of materials and processes for 3D-printing of components for fire stopping vents
The objective of this project is to develop an intumescent material and a corresponding production process for automated industrial production of components for a patented type of fire stopping vents for buildings.
The main goal of KOPROD is to demonstrate methods and technology solutions for future competitive production of complex, small and medium volume products for cost-sensitive markets. The project is financed by the Norwegian Research Council's BIA-program.
The V-ALU-E project focusses on collaboration strategies for value driven aluminium product development across industry and the academic world.
The research project CPS Plant will develop a framework for the Norwegian approach for the digital manufacturing industry. The consortium consists of 3 Norwegian industry partners, Norsk Hydro, Benteler Automotive and Hycast, and SINTEF Digital and NTNU (Trondheim and Gjovik) are the academic partners. SINTEF Manufacturing is the project leader.
CompVessel – Optimal design and production process for composite gas pressure vessels
The overall goal of this project is to develop new and optimized design methods, production processes and supporting tools specialized for composite gas pressure vessels.
SFI Manufacturing's vision is to show that sustainable manufacturing in a high-cost country like Norway is possible, given the right products, technologies and people. Cross-disciplinary research will provide a knowledge based toolbox for future industrial innovations.
AddForm – Additive manufacturing of mould inserts for injection moulding of functional prototypes and small product series
Additive manufacturing (AM), often referred to as 3D printing, has received a lot of attention recently. The overall idea of the AddForm project is to use rather inexpensive mould inserts, made by AM, for injection moulding of plastic parts. The project focuses on polymer-based AM materials.
