Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-210
Budget: 04/20/10 - 10/28/10

This SBIR project aims at the development of an innovative technology that can be attached to existing submerged arc welding (SAW) systems to monitor and feedback control the depth of weld penetration. Existing SAW systems will be operated using existing welding procedures without modifications. In many applications skilled welders may adjust th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-211
Budget: 05/11/09 - 05/11/11

In traditional GMAW and modifications, the current melting the wire is the same as the current heating the base metal. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity, the base metal heat input is typically much greater than the required to control the distortion at an acceptable or desirable level. In the modified GMAW proposed, a bypass torch ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-178
Budget: 09/15/08 - 11/16/09

This SBIR Phase I project is to prove the feasibility of an innovative weld monitoring technology. This innovative technology is characterized by (1) an innovative non-transferred arc sensor which responds to both surface conductivity and sensor-to-joint distance and can be used to monitor the joint geometry and possible surface contamination su...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-211
Budget: 03/11/08 - 03/18/09

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is the most widely used welding process. It is also the major process used in shipbuilding. In traditional GMAW and all its modifications, the current which melts the wire is the same as the current which heats the base metal. The base metal heat input is thus proportional to the heat which melts the wire. To maintai...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-154
Budget: 02/20/08 - 12/31/10

Orbital pipe welding systems are not true emulation of skilled welders who adjust welding parameters based on observation on the weld pool. This SBIR Phase II project aims at the development of commercial prototype systems which can adaptively adjust welding parameters based on an observation on the weld pool surface like a skilled welder but do...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-154
Budget: 02/09/06 - 08/08/06

Orbital pipe welding systems can function like skilled welders, to certain extent, who can move the torch very smoothly/evenly. However, their adjustment of welding parameters is not a true emulation of skilled welders who observe the weld pool and adjust welding parameters based on the observation of the weld pool rather than simply the locatio...
