AUTOSPOT: Our new R&D project

October 21, 2021

It will be the world first automated and contactless laser acoustics spot weld in-line inspection system.

A consortium formed by  Xarion Laser Acoustics GmbH, Institute of Electrical Measurement and Sensor Systems, and Innerspec Technologies Europe S.L. is working to develop a novel, non-destructive, and automated ultrasonic inspection system, based on the latest optical microphone technology, for in-line detection and characterization of spot weld defects. Innerspec will be responsible for developing the demonstrator to the highest standards, easing the transition from prototype to commercial product.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Eurostars programme under Grant Agreement No 114851.
