ILAS 2013

Prof. Ceglarek and members of his team from WMG, The University of Warwick presented "Remote Laser Welding System Navigator for Eco- and Resilient Automotive Factories" together with project partners from Stadco, Charles Marine and Jaguar LandRover,Anil Mistry.

The presentation  introduced the EU FP7 RLW Navigator programme which integrates a universal simulation engine and experimental models to precisely configure, optimize and control laser welding process variation, production throughput and cost. It serves as a crucial enabler for future energy efficient smart factories by addressing the need for frequently changing operating conditions and product mix provisions. It will lead to developing a system that removes trial-and-error from the process using precise mathematical modelling. Results will deliver significant efficiencies manufacturers want from the process.

RLW Navigator is a three year, €3.9M, project funded by the European Commission under the ICT-Factories of the Future programme.  The project has fourteen partners and began in January 2012.

The goal of the project is to develop an engineering platform for an emerging joining technology from the automotive industry, Remote Laser Welding (RLW), that will enable the exploitation of this technology and ultimately support other joining processes.
