Digital design concept takes full advantage of novel HYBRID materials
FIMECC HYBRIDS programme brings material research and design to a new level by digitalizing materials R&D. The digital design concept takes full advantage of novel hybrid materials and speeds up product design significantly.
Long-term research activities enabled the development of a revolutionary new type of reactor for the metals processing industry
To meet the global challenge of declining ore grades and increasing price of energy a novel hydrostatic pressure reactor for the metals processing industry have been developed. The new type of reactor is energy efficient and can utilize low-grade raw materials that are currently not economically feasible.
Bi-metallic valves via hot isostatic pressing
In Finland special products and components with high performance offer competitive edge over mass production of lower cost countries. New manufacturing technologies are in key role in offering these high performance components. In the project HIP (hot isostatic pressing) manufacturing methods were developed to fabricate bi-metallic valve-bodies. The test results are...
Light and efficient structures for next generation mineral crushers
New material solutions were applied to Metso crushers. New materials offered advantages, such as improved usability, durability and energy efficiency, differentiating Metso crushers from its competitors.
