OPTIBLANKS: Hybrid EMAT-Vision solution for OPTIMISATION of advanced manufacturing process of automotive tailor welded BLANKS.
Through Optiblanks Project, Innerspec Technologies will overcome the limitations of automotive TWB manufacturing process weld quality control with a novel hybrid technology approach. This new inspection system will enable 100% inspection of laser welded parts to identify defects such as porosity, lack of penetration, lack of side wall fusion, etc…
Innerspec, as a global leader in Automotive TWB inspection using EMAT technology, will remain in the leading edge with the introduction of the next generation of systems.
Innerspec will collaborate with automotive TWB manufacturers during validation, testing and installation of the OPTIBLANKS technology into their production environments.
OPTIBLANKS Project is a SME instrument phase 2. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 778392.
