MTC Powder Solutions partners with Swerim to expand R&D capabilities

January 15, 2021

MTC Powder Solutions (MTC PS), Surahammar, Sweden, part of Metal Technology Co Ltd (MTC), has signed an agreement with leading metals research institute Swerim, Luleå, Sweden, to expand MTC PS’ testing capabilities in research and development projects related to Powder Metallurgy (PM) Near-Net Shape (NNS) Hot Isostatic Pressed (HIP) materials.

MTC PS explains that as more companies are starting to explore the benefits that NNS HIP can offer, it sees an increasing demand for application-specific development projects, where the focus is to either extend the operational window or increase the lifetime of customers’ components.

In addition to having one the most advanced laboratories for advanced material testing/characterisation, Swerim also has great knowledge in Powder Metallurgy materials and processes, making this agreement an excellent fit with MTC PS states the company.

The increased R&D budget will be utilised to focus on additional material and process development in collaboration with companies who are seeking to take their components to higher levels of performance and reliability.

“Staying in the forefront of PM NNS HIP developments has always been a cornerstone in MTC PS and we can gladly announce that not only have we increased the testing capabilities, but also increased the R&D budget for 2021 drastically,” commented Tomas Berglund, Application Development Manager at MTC PS.
