In the aerospace industry very high quality standards have to be met. For the manufacturing of carbon fibre parts this is currently solved through extended end-of-line inspection in combination with re-work processes to deal with defective parts. Also, in-situ visual inspection is used for quality control, which is currently causing huge productivity losses (30%-50%) during lay-up and has become a ...

Minimizing Defects in Micro-Manufacturing Applications (MIDEMMA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2011, End date: Oct 31, 2014,

Micro-manufacturing requires 'Zero-Defect' oriented approaches, both in large scale and in short-run production. Current quality control approaches, coming from macro-manufactring, are mainly based on post-process geometric control, which produces a large time lag between the defect generation and its detection, usually leading to large amount of defect parts (large scale) or wasted high value pro ...
