Sheet Metal Centre at HAMK is your development partner
Our research and development projects aim at improving the competitiveness of Finnish sheet metal products and manufacturing. We collaborate with the industry and other research institutes. We focus on research services in forming and joining of sheet metal, development work of 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.
