Rolling and forging

Our research supports the Swedish steel industry by meeting the need for leading-edge expertise and long-term knowledge creation, from an international perspective, thereby helping the industry to achieve greater competitive advantage. Here, the application and development of both experimental methods and simulation tools improves our theoretical knowledge concerning the link between processes and product characteristics. An important part of this work is participation in production-scale trials in collaboration with the steelmakers.

Thermomechanical area

In the thermomechanical area we work with:

  • development of thermomechanical processes;
  • development of hot-rolled products;
  • studies of the relation between finished-product characteristics and process parameters;
  • development of physical models;
  • studies of welding properties and methods for ultra-high-strength steels.

Cold rolling and annealing area

In the cold rolling and annealing area we work with:

  • process development;
  • development of cold-rolled products;
  • studies of the relation between finished-product characteristics and process parameters;
  • development of theoretical models for annealing processes.
