Service Communautaire d'Information sur la Recherche et le Développement - CORDIS


The main objective of IPCIM is to develop new and innovative welding techniques for new materials (or products) and to develop welding control techniques for large section and sheet metal steel welding in the manufacturing industry. The result of the IPCIM project will allow partners to use new welding control techniques. This will further extend the application of laser welding by reduction in the process cost through the higher quality and productivity laser welding. TWI is involved in the process evaluation and industrial assessment of the IPCIM project. Work has been completed to achieve the optimised welding conditions for selected joint/material configurations. Work will be conducted on various joint configurations with engineered defected to establish the performance of the monitoring sensors. TWI will provide partners with technical and engineering solutions in structures incorporating welding and associated technologies.
