|Project title||Self-learning multi-stage quality monitoring procedures for (laser) material processing (SmQL)|
|Project duration||01.12.2018 – 30.11.2020|
Small and medium-sized companies that supply products in a coordinated process chain (such as the cutting of semi-finished products, followed by laser welding) are confronted with changing tasks and mostly small batch sizes. Due to the increasing product complexity and the increased variety of variants, the effort for the development of production processes in small and medium-sized companies is constantly increasing. The digitalization of process knowledge represents a special challenge for processing small and medium-sized companies in many cases.
Therefore, an expert system is being developed in the "SmQL" research project to support manufacturing companies in the field of laser material processing, process control and process prediction of new products and product variants.
