Factory in a Box



End date:


The national Swedish ambition to increase the number and sizes of Swedish industries is counteracted by lack of production capacity available on demand and at any location. Also, companies without in-house production capacity are faced with few options if they need to manufacture a pilot product. Instead, manufacturing orders are often placed in low-wage countries, e.g. China or Eastern Europe.The Factory-in-a-Box demonstrator will provide solutions for availability and mobility of flexible production capacity!The project was funded (19 MSEK during a three-year-period) by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF, ProViking). It is a collaboration between MDH, Chalmers, Jönköping and LiU. Industrial participants are ABB Robotics, Pharmadule, Bombardier, Flexlink, Volvo CE and Varnäsföretagen.
