Award List:

Sensor Torch Based Adaptive Intelligent Control for Circumferential Welding of Pipes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: YuMing Zhang, President
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
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… More

Monitoring of Arcing Condition in GMAW and Its Variants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: YuMing Zhang, President
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
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… More

A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: YuMing Zhang, President
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
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… More

Sensor Torch Based Adaptive Intelligent Control for Circumferential Welding of Pipes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: YuMing Zhang, President
Award Amount: $299,798.00
Abstract:
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… More

A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: YuMing Zhang, President
Award Amount: $449,966.00
Abstract:
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.… More

Weld Penetration Monitoring and Feedback Control in Submerged Arc Welding

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: YuMing Zhang, President
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
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… More
