Andreas Archenti is chair professor in Industrial Dependability focusing on Precision Engineering and Metrology at KTH. He received his M.S. (2007) in Mechanical Engineering, and PhD (2011) in Machine and Process technology, and was appointed docent (2014) in Precision Manufacturing and Metrology at KTH. From 2018 he is dividing his time between at the newly established research group at the department of Sustainable Production Development (KTH Södertälje campus) and research at the department of Production Engineering (KTH Valhallavägen campus in Stockholm).
As director of center for Design and Management of Manufacturing Systems (DMMS) at KTH, Dr Archenti is responsible for coordination of activities in research, education, and information dissemination between academia and manufacturing industry.
- 2011 - Phd in Machine and Process Technology
- 2007 - MSc (Civilingejör) in Mechanical engineering focusing on Mechatronics
Today, the strategic research in dependability utilizing precision engineering principles focuses on a wide variety of application areas such as systems and components from aerospace and nuclear industries to automotive, electronic, medical and optical parts. The demand for high precision dependable systems is driven by the need to achieve technical, economic and environmental goals. Technical goals are related to: (i) improving the mechanical and physical characteristics related to the physical properties of the components; (ii) improving operational performance and safety of systems and components working in harsh environments; (iii) the integration of ICT to implement cyber physical systems. Economic goals are aiming at reducing the design and production costs as well as keeping the products flexible and adaptable. A joint economic and environmental goal is the reduction of waste to increase the sustainability. A Further environmental goal is related to reducing the mass of components, which leads to lower energy consumptions and reduced carbon footprints.
