PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Chrysler Corp. and LLNL have entered into a collaboration to enhance the NDE technology at the Kokomo transmission plant. The project spans 3 years and a wide variety of different projects. Goals are making NDE automated, reliable, and capable of avoiding destructive testing. This requires NDE systems to be better utilized by quality teams on the shop floor and better connected for providing in one place a sufficient set of data for identifying problems in a manufacturing operation, and prescribing an adjustment. The approach is illustrated on two different processes, laser welding and pressure die casting; in each case data ... continued below

The approach is illustrated on two different processes, laser welding and pressure die casting; in each case data are combined from different NDE systems to enable a decision on an adjustment in process variables.
