Technical feasibility study of the Improvement of quality and productivity in Boilermaking through data processing on welding parameters for manufacturers of pressure vessels and wind towers (MECASOL).

The project, with completion in March 2019, is analyzing the feasibility of applying massive data processing technologies to the manufacture of high added value products (such as pressure vessels and wind towers), evaluating the process signals obtained from new MIG/MAG welding technologies.

This project will also be developed in case studies for the improvement of the productivity of the manufacturers, making use of the information generated in real time during the welding process.

information generated in real time during the welding process, in the most important industrial sector of Asturias, the metal-mechanic one.
The overall objective is to improve the competitiveness of companies in line with the RIS3 smart specialization policies for Asturias.

This objective will be carried out through control tests on various types of boards and will facilitate decision making on the most productive processes, determine the strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats, as well as the resources needed to carry out its implementation, and ultimately its prospects for success and application to the entire metalworking sector. This project will facilitate the preparation of R+D+i projects in the field of the productive needs of the partner productive needs of the partners belonging to the AEI Polo del Acero.

Funded by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism within the Program of Support to the AEI to contribute to the improvement of the competitiveness of the Spanish industry.
