Big Science Sweden observes measurements at MAX IV

Big Science Sweden was able to take part as observer when Chalmers University of Technology, Seco Tools, and a research group from the Division of Production and Materials Engineering at Lund University visited MAX IV, to carry out measurements of the material called bearing steel.

Involved in the measurements at MAX IV were Rachid M’saoubi, R&D Expert Cutting Technology at SECO Tools and Adjunct Professor at Lund University, and Uta Klement, Professor in Materials Science at Chalmers.

The Division of Production and Materials Engineering and Seco Tools have worked extensively together on machining tests, and Seco Tools, which makes tools for bearings, collaborates with Chalmers.

The aim of the measurement was to gather information to improve production of the material, by developing methods for machining the material’s surface.

Mike Olsson, previously a researcher at the Division of Production and Materials Engineering and now a Business Development Officer at Big Science Sweden, and Frida Tibblin Citron, also a Business Development Officer, were able to participate as observers inside MAXPEEM, one of the instruments at MAX IV.

“This was so much fun!” said Frida. “We at Big Science Sweden are working hard to build up the Big Science ecosystem, and we want to understand everybody’s roles – researchers, industry, and everyone who, in various ways, contributes to exciting discoveries and innovations.”
