Hannover Messe Digital Edition 2021: Artificial intelligence for quality testing

Rapid material testing during sheet metal processing reduces failure and scrap

Research News Special Edition / March 30, 2021

Fraunhofer researchers have developed an innovative process for the initial testing of sheet metal in production systems. The process involves combining tried and proven load tests with an AI software solution. Even before the first machining step, the software creates a prediction about how the material will behave during production and gauges whether it will meet quality requirements. This drastically reduces the risk of failure and amount of scrap.
