To produce a production ready laser welding process to replace an existing resistance welding method for the production of titanium fairings.
The aim was to develop a process and tooling which would reduce or eliminate the need for post welding part sizing or forming.
This would improve the product consistency, reduce the manual input and decrease the cycle time.
We worked with the MTC to build on earlier mathematical modelling to develop a robust process we can now deploy in Rolls-Royce
