About Techtank

Techtank is a technology cluster in southern Sweden which gathers advanced industrial and technology companies. These companies have customers in various international and industrial markets, particularly the automotive industry which is the base for the majority of companies in the group. Together, we work with partners from regional and local councils, and with research institutes and universities in order to reach new markets, drive technology development as well as to attract and develop the necessary skill sets required. In the field of Stamping the cluster has a collective world-class expertise. Our vision is to develop into an internationally recognized Centre of Excellence in Stamping with a focus on lightweight construction. Techtank includes the following processes in the concept of Stamping:

Stamping is a processing operation for components in metallic and/or synthetic sheet material, where material is formed by one or more techniques that may involve; pressing, bending, folding, and/or subassembly. Usually presses are used, and the component finished by using forming and trimming tools. The process can be carried out in a hot or cold state. Furthermore, stamping also involves; processing of a component, process and tool design, manufacturing, maintenance tools, geometry assurance, and logistics.

Techtank has its headquarters in Olofström (Sweden), and a sales office in Coventry (UK).

Techtank is run from Olofströms Näringsliv. During the period 2015-09-01 to 2018-08-31 Techtank’s activities are conducted within the framework of the project Techtank Bas, partly financed by the European Regional Development Fund, Region Blekinge, Olofström Municipality, and the participating companies.
