Sheet Metal Centre at HAMK is your development partner
Our research and development projects aim at improving the competitiviness of Finnish sheet metal products and manufacturing. We collaborate with industry and other research institutes. Our main emphases are research services in forming and joining of sheet metal, development work on materials and coatings, weathering tests, as well as structural analyses and loading tests.
Sheet Metal Centre (SMC) is the oldest research unit of Häme University of Applied Sciences (founded in 1998), with 10 full-time R&D employees and a varying number of trainees. We are equipped with e.g. testing apparatus for corrosion and weathering, a test loading frame for full-scale structures, and strain measuring systems and friction testing equipment.
