SveMek – potential to bid for Big Science contracts

Big Science Sweden recently visited the member company Svedala Mekaniska AB (SveMek), which has all the expertise needed to take its first steps into the Big Science market. Together with its subcontractors, it could form a strong consortium when submitting tenders for contracts from the research organisations.

Broad expertise

SveMek’s engineering factory has been in operation in Svedala since the 1950s. The company has built up a solid bank of expertise and equipment, and offers machining services, such as turning and milling, in both large and small diameters in different materials. Specialisations include metal cutting, welding, and assembly.

Supplier to research facilities

Several of the company’s clients are already suppliers to various research facilities and, earlier, SveMek has itself manufactured copper components for the Max Lab, the predecessor of MAX IV. SveMek is currently developing magnets for Scanditronix, a company with a long history of supplying advanced magnets, for example to CERN.

Ideal for Big Science

Mike Olson and Frida Tibblin Citron from Big Science Sweden recently headed out to Svedala to see at first hand what the company could offer Big Science. Frida Tibblin Citron was impressed with what she saw.

“SveMek works with a number of subcontractors in welding, laser and waterjet cutting, and together they can offer complete machining services that are ideal for Big Science.”

Big Science Sweden thanks SveMek for the visit, and wishes the company every success in the Big Science market.
