Smart wood construction and coating

At the core of the wood and construction technology laboratory are understanding the processes of companies in the field and close co-operation. This makes it possible to provide rapid first-aid in a problem-solving situation concerning a company’s processes, as well as smooth transfer of research results to companies.

Product development tests and research activities

If an expert is invited to the company, it is usually a process problem related to surface treatment that is solved by means of measurement, testing, training and Lean tools. In product development tests aimed at companies, our strengths include improving the long-term sustainability of products in extreme conditions. In research activities, the laboratory serves as a platform for the industrial process, focusing on the automatic collection, analysis and visualisation of data. Industrial construction and minimising carbon emissions of buildings are also part of our research activities.
