How will this impact the Swedish industry?
This project deals with the manufacturing branch of the Swedish industry, with a particular focus on metal cutting and tooling. In Sweden, the value created by these areas is massive. Manufacturing industries are estimated to have a SEK 600 billion turnover directly generated through machining. And another SEK 125 billion generated by the tooling industries. Results from ToolSense will give these industries a cutting-edge, and it will provide other industrial areas with new impulses.
What are you most excited about, regarding this project?
To see that the knowledge from nano-sized semiconductor device manufacturing can be actually implemented in such a large and significant areas as the tooling and metal processing industries. This project will not research a (proof of) concept but will actually deliver concrete novel sensors and tools to the market: from idea to production, all in one project!
