Final Report - ORBITAL (Design, development and evaluation of an orbital laser welding head)

Project ID: 262455
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is the final report for the ORBITAL project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The ORBITAL system consists in a new laser welding head adapted to the specific requirements of the orbital welding process and tailored for tube-to-sheet joints used in the production of heat exchangers. The system was developed to enhance the characteristics of the laser welding process: high-speed welding, real-time control, easy automation, data exchange, accuracy.

The report initially provides a general overview of the project and goes on further analysing its context and summarising its main aim and objectives. The main results achieved are also presented. The report closes with the results' potential impact and main dissemination activities.
