Towards real-time probing of precipitates in hot-rolling processes under realistic conditions

SSAB, Lund University (Prof. Stephen Hall), Swerim, and Uppsala Synchrotronix have received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency for combined SAXS and WAXS studies of the precipitation kinetics during hot-rolling of microalloyed steels, aiming at real-time in-situ experiments. The experiments will be carried out at Petra-3. Linda Bäcke from SSAB is the project manager. Read […]

3D texture analysis for optimization of rolled aluminium

Lund University (the group of Prof. Stephen Hall), Gränges Sweden, and Uppsala Synchrotronix have received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency to facilitate a wide-spread industrial usage of combined tomography and 3DXRD investigations by developing convenient means for co-visualization and interpretation of the resulting huge 3D data sets. The developed data analysis methods will be […]

Feasibility studies – mimicking the conditions in hot strip mills

SSAB, Lund University, and Uppsala Synchrotronix have received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency to investigate if the conditions during steel production in hot strip mills can be mimicked in synchrotron radiation experiments using scattering and imaging techniques. Read more about the feasibility studies here and here.

Call for industrial Swedish research projects at large-scale facilities

Sweden’s Innovation Agency (Vinnova) has announced the second 2019 call for proposals for industrial research at large-scale photon and neutron facilities. The deadline is 20 November. Feel free to discuss opportunities with us, preferably at an early stage to get sufficient time to set up a dedicated project team and write a carefully planned proposal.
