The main objective of IPCIM is to develop new and innovative welding techniques for new materials and to develop welding control techniques for large section and sheet metal steel welding in the manufacturing industry which are not yet available. When considering the manufacture of fabricated structures by welding, two technology groups are required:
1) process validation and process control and
2) integration in real manufacturing environment.
While former programmes focused on the development of novel welding techniques, it is today necessary to invest in the reliability, reproducibility, and autonomy of these welding techniques to ensure sustainable growth and competitiveness of industries using large section and sheet metal welding with special regard to environment-friendly and waste-free high-tech production.
