Research and Development

Cutting edge research at your service

The research and development at the ELME Studio is managed through project work for greater efficiency. The main partner in the research is the Future Manufacturing Technologies research group. They are responsible for putting together and managing the new projects at ELME Studios.

The Future Manufacturing Technologies (FMT) research group is a part of the Kerttu Saalasti Institute from the University of Oulu. Together with the ELME Studio, we provide new research and knowledge within the field, and we also execute company requested research on these topics.

We solve manufacturing and product development problems for companies involved in stainless steel, aluminum or carbon steel material research and the formability of these materials.

We investigate the potential that new technologies might bring in product development and manufacturing processes. In addition to this, we examine how manufacturing automation can be introduced into the traditional mechanical engineering industry and work shop environment.

We can also test the developed products in our laboratory.
