Real-Time dynamic control system for laser welding

The RADICLE project aims to create a multi-sensor, real-time adaptive control system for laser welding that can deliver zero defects.

The report identified the key growth sectors for laser welding to be:

  • Automotive - 165,000 new cars produced every day
  • Aerospace – airlines will buy more than 36,000 planes in the next 20 years
  • Energy/power – wind power capacity alone increased by 35/5 GW in 2013
  • Medical – the market for stents exceeds $5 billion
  • Agricultural equipment – 6.8% increase per year through 2016
  • Fabricated metal parts – over $2 trillion per annum
