Multi-scale image correlation for robotic component inspection

The global goal of the project is the realization of a robotassisted component inspection. Digital image correlation is used to measure the deformation. In order to dynamically change the resolution during the inspection, a multi-scale stochastic pattern is tested. Furthermore, the robot-based digitization of objects is implemented, which is the basis for the trajectory calculation during the inspection.

Finite element simulation of the Automated Fiber Placement process: validation and optimization

At the Center for Lightweight Production Technology (ZLP) in Augsburg, CFRP manufacturing technologies are developed and automated. The aim is digital, robot-assisted production to make tomorrow's transport more environmentally friendly and more efficient. One promising technology is the deposition of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics by means of Automated Fiber Placement (AFP). The quality of the components is largely determined by the interaction of temperature, pressure and speed. By means of a finite element simulation, these these parameters to be even better matched to each other.

The simulation has already been set up at the institute. The goal of this project is to collect measurement data, to validate the simulation and to validate and where possible improve the simulation.

Investigation of the magnetic properties of carbon fibers by
SQUID measurements

The global goal of the project is the realization of a measuring stand for the quality inspection of fibers by means of magnetic methods. The measurements of the magnetic properties of carbon fibers will be performed with the SQUID. Different fiber types shall be distinguished. Furthermore, a correlation between the mechanical and magnetic properties of carbon fibers shall be determined.

Investigation of electromagnetic emission during load increase
tests on fiber composites

The aim of the work is to investigate the EME during static and cyclic load increase tests on fiber composites and to test and further develop an existing sensor concept for in-situ measurement of EME in X-ray CT. To this end, preliminary tests are to be carried out on fiber composite samples in an existing test setup and sensor optimization is to be achieved. Based on this, the damage observed in the X-ray CT will be correlated with the EME and AE signals.

Analysis, characterization and optimization of the washing
process of 3D printed metallic objects

The aim is to optimize the washing process of green parts in metal based additive manufacturing. For this purpose, it should be recorded how the triggering process takes place over time and which processes take place in the component. This creates the potential to optimize this process technically, economically and in terms of process time.

Economic evaluation of process monitoring systems

The aim of the work is to investigate the economic efficiency of using process monitoring systems in cnc machining.  For this purpose, two selected demo components, which are manufactured, are to be evaluated with regard to their economic potentials and generalized recommendations are to be derived from them. For this, the machining of these demo parts will first be evaluated with regard to their actual condition. Additionally, we want to investigate the application potential of the process monitoring systems in connection with the efficiency of the measuring systems and the effectiveness of the fusion of the collected data.

Development and construction of a demonstrator for gearbox
monitoring

Within the scope of this work a demonstrator shall be constructed to monitor gearboxes. A three-speed bicycle hub constitutes the essential component. Employing acoustic sensors for measurement of structure-borne noise, the selected gear and braking force applied via a disc brake are to be identified and visualized. Efficient algorithms for data reduction and machine learning methods are used to analyze the acoustic signals.

Performing in-situ pull-out tests on shape memory wire/polymer composites

Performing in-situ pull-out tests allows the observance of the interface while it is under load and locating the beginning of the failure procedure. This will help to understand the mechanisms of load transmission and  failure and will help to increase the adhesion. Therefore, transparent matrix materials are necessary to observe the interface through the matrix material using light microscopy and/or scanning electron microscope.
