AEM Process is a funded research and development project. The goal is to develop a measurement system for in-line industial application. It combines several destruction-free signal sources: acoustic emission, electrical eddy current technology and magnetic Barkhausen noise methods. The system will enable the user to control the quality of an industrial production process fast and precisely.
In order to achieve this goal, QASS cooperates with Materials Test Engineering at Technical University of Dortmund. Grouping of these methods in a single sensor unit and the ability to measure in-line produce outstanding monetary and timely advantages, compared to conventional analysis methods, especially for small and medium companies.
During this R&D project, QASS is going to build a prototype of the measurement device. Part of this device is a database of patterns that emerge from metal working processes to evaluate and control these processes. After identifying material properties and after checking these properties in the industrial environment, this database will focus on production processes and guarantee sustained value-adding.
This ZIM single project starts at September 1st, 2014 and ends December 31st, 2016.
