Tillverkning och övervakning på distans i Makerspace

I Makerspace, vårt lab för idégenerering och prototyputveckling, har vi bland annat ett antal 3d-skrivare. Även om tekniken utvecklas snabbt är det tyvärr inte ovanligt att utskrifter, i synnerhet större och mer komplexa geometrier, misslyckas. I ett försök att öka nyttjandegrad och tillförlitlighet har vi kopplat upp några av våra skrivare på nätet, IoT in […]

The Adoption of Additive Manufacturing Technology in Sweden

ABSTRACT This paper analyzes the adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies in Sweden. The dataset consists of a recent and representative sample of Swedish AM users (companies, universities, and research institutes). The authors investigate two questions. Firstly, what are the current applications of AM in Sweden (e.g. Rapid Prototyping (RP), production)? Secondly, what are the […]

Additive Manufacturing Technology Potential: A Cleaner Manufacturing Alternative

ABSTRACT This paper focuses on an emerging manufacturing technology called Additive Manufacturing (AM) and its potential to become a more efficient and cleaner manufacturing alternative. This work is built around selected case companies, where the benefit of AM compared to other more traditional technologies is studied through the comparison of resource consumption. The resource consumption […]
