Final Report - OLIWAM (Development and validation of on line monitoring and NDT Inspection of Laser welded thin sheet automotive components)

Project ID: 32240
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of OLIWAM project. This pre-competitive project was aimed at developing a new, fast, monitoring and NDT inspection system, the OLIWAM system, to be used on-line, providing a 100 % inspection rate for thin-sheet laser welded automotive components. The system's software allows for online evaluation of the results, with remedial actions, if any, taken immediately, significantly reducing repair costs and scrap rates.

The report refers to current state of the art in automotive industry welding and non-destructive monitoring techniques and then explains the project's objectives. It later presents a summary of the results, blended with further talk on how the experiments were set and conducted. The document concludes with an assessment of the project impacts and knowledge dissemination plans.
