Final Report - HQ-TUBES (High-quality tube and pipe production by hybrid welding)

Project ID: 222289
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is the final summary report for the HQ-TUBE project. Funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), HQ-TUBE's aim was to develop an equipment-independent approach that allows the manufacturing quality and productivity of carbon-manganese steel pipes and tubes to be improved. For this reason, to tackles the issues of weld quality and productivity improvement for manufacturing tubes and pipes, it sought to develop advanced sensors for the hybrid laser-arc welding process.

The report covers initially a general overview of the project and goes on presenting its specific objectives. It then covers an overview of the work performed and the results achieved of each of the seven work packages that the project is divided into. It closes referring to the results' potential impact and listing the project consortium.
