A nano-scale glimpse into stainless steel brazing
Alfa Laval and Lund University used MAX IV to gain insights into the deoxidation process that occurs during the brazing of stainless steel products. These observations can help Alfa Laval to optimize its production process and solve R&D challenges. A leader in stainless steel products The Lund-based company Alfa Laval is an industry leader in the manufacturing of stainless steel products such as heat exchangers […]
A push towards flux-free aluminium brazing
Gränges customers assemble aluminium sheets through brazing using braze clads, a fast and convenient assembly method. The technique used is called controlled atmosphere brazing, a procedure where brazing is performed in a furnace with nitrogen at temperatures around 600ºC. A crucial step preceding brazing is the removal of the surface oxide layer, which forms naturally on the aluminium surface.
Better boxes for more sustainable packaging
BillerudKorsnäs together with RISE performed X-ray scattering experiments to understand the cause behind the deformation of corrugated boxes used in goods delivery. The collected data is contributing to the development of sturdier and more sustainable boxes. The way goods travel the world The use of corrugated boxes is the most common and wide-spread solution for the delivery of goods around the world, but it is […]
Bread at the nanoscale
Lantmännen and RISE want to establish new knowledge about the interaction of polysaccharides with water, and the gelatinisation of starch granules that shapes the baking process. The results of the X-ray scattering experiments help Lantmännen optimise the different qualities of their flours. The aim for better flours Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative and Northern Europe’s leader in agriculture, machinery, bioenergy and food products with operation […]
Discover the true potential of your biomaterial with X-rays
BoneSupport AB and scientists from Lund University used X-ray tomography to observe how the bone substitute produced by the company behaves inside the bone. They confirmed the distinctive features of the product and observed how it protects the bone material during mechanical loading.
Finding drug candidates faster
SARomics Biostructures in collaboration with the BioMAX beamline’s scientists successfully tested the feasibility of serial crystallography at MAX IV. The advent of the first fourth-generation synchrotron pioneered by MAX IV finally makes serial crystallography more easily accessible to private companies. Crystals for drug development SARomics Biostructures is a contract research organization (CRO) offering structural biology services in the field of early-stage drug discovery. One of […]
How biological drug development benefits from photons
Alligator Bioscience in collaboration with SARomics Biostructures used X-ray crystallography to unveil the unique characteristics of one of their antibody-drug candidates, proving how valuable synchrotron X-rays can be for drug development. A promising antibody Alligator Bioscience, located just a few kilometres away from MAX IV, is a biotechnology company specialised in the development of antibody-based immunotherapies for cancer treatment. The company has a portfolio of […]
Identifying leaking syringes with neutrons
The biopharmaceutical company Sobi together with neutron experts from RISE used neutron radiography for the detection of leakages in prefilled syringes. The results show the potential of this technique in detecting leaks, with significant advantages for design and quality assurance in syringe production.
Mixing neutrons and photons for longer-lasting bread
Lantmännen together with RISE and Lund University combined neutron and X-rays experiments to look at the distribution of water inside doughs during proofing and baking. Their final aim is to produce baking products with a longer shelf life. Fresh for longer Wouldn’t it be nice if the bread you buy kept its freshly baked taste and texture for days? Wouldn’t it be convenient for resellers […]
Stable emulsions under X-rays
Speximo AB and MAX IV Laboratory used the unique properties of synchrotron light combined with SAXS and WAXS techniques to obtain new information on the quinoa starches they use in Pickering emulsions. The findings are beneficial for Speximo’s future product development. Mixing oil and water Speximo AB is a Swedish company founded and run by experts in starch Pickering emulsions. The company develops oil-in-water emulsions […]
The road towards more stable biopharmaceuticals
The company Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (Sobi) wants to know how to improve thermal stability of their biopharmaceutical products. Together with researchers from Malmö University, MAX IV, and RISE, they used synchrotron light to understand how proteins behave when water is removed from the pharmaceutical solution. Their findings can have important implications in the creation of more stable biological drugs. The challenge with residual water […]
X-rays can help stop wasting waste
Waste incineration companies working together with RISE investigated the use of synchrotron X-rays to identify nontoxic bottom ash from waste incineration that can be used as ground construction material. Bottom ash from waste incineration In Sweden, household and commercial waste that cannot be reused or recycled is incinerated, resulting in energy recovery and the generation of streams of fly ash and bottom ash as by-products.
