open-access publication "Learning Defects from Aircraft NDT Data"
We are contributing towards NDE 4.0 with our latest open-access publication "Learning Defects from Aircraft NDT Data" in NDT & E International Journal, Elsevier. This article introduces the optimization and digitalization of non-destructive evaluation (NDE) in aircraft production through the implementation of Industry 4.0.
27.06.2023 - Automatica 2023 in Munich, we were there! There was more information about our exhibited technology and research.
Opening Hall 43
22.06.2023 - New research hall of the AI production network was opened. With the opening of "Halle 43" the AI Production Network at the Universität Augsburg has reached an important milestone. The new hall will be used for researching the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in manufacturing. It aims to make the regional economy fit for the future.
MFFD frames integrated
25.05.2023 - Entering final stage: The team at DLR BT in Augsburg has completed the resistance welding of the C-frames with our inhouse developed weld bridge. The frames were produced and supplied by Premium AEROTEC. The 8 m long the Multifunctional Fuselage Demonstrator (MFFD) upper_shell is currently being equipped with its cleats and frame couplings before trimming and handover in July.
