WeldVue brings together leading innovators from the UK and Turkey with the SMART framework. The objective of the project is to implement advanced AI-based model for automotive parts manufacturing processes, optimisation and reconfiguration – Targeting critical welded components. The application of the WeldVue framework in a manufacturing line will result in the fabrication of high-quality products with near-zero defects. The digitalisation elements toward industry 4.0 will be complemented by a novel, first of a kind hybrid non-destructive testing platform for quality control purposes. Replacing the manual techniques currently utilised. Initially targeting high volume automotive sector, the technology has long term commercial value within aerospace, energy and wider manufacturing domains. WeldVue enables pioneering SMEs STL, Ether and Teknopar the opportunity to work with Tier 1 automotive supplier Coskunoz. Supported by research partners TWI and BUL, the final system will undergo a prolonged validation period with Coskunoz production plant ensure rapid market take-up.
