Innovative components manufacturing technology through powder technology

The aim has been to establish a project consortium with common goals where powder metallurgical (PM) solutions are developed driven by specific challenges in different sectors. This has been accomplished where actors along different value chains have been gathered with the aim to test and develop new PM-solutions for heavy trucks, aerospace and energy applications. An application for a larger co-operation project has been realized based on following applications as drivers: - future components for road vehicles, especially heavy trucks - possibilities to use PM for parts in fabricated structures for aeroengines - material solutions for extreme applications exemplified by demands connected to structural parts for ITER. New concepts have been identified and shall be developed and lowered environmental impact in advanced production can result. The aim has been to realize a consortium for a larger co-operation project. The methodology has been to gather potential actors in three consecutive workshops with prior development of consortium strategies and common goals. Through this concept, many companies have put effort into the development of the consortium and actively contributed to definition of joint goals. More strategic R&D performers have also been added to the consortium. The consortium is presented in the final report (Appendix 1). It comprises a functional setting of companies and R&D performers.
