ACCURATe six-monthly project progress meeting

In late January, the project partners gathered together at RECENDT premises in Linz, Austria for the first six-monthly meeting to discuss project progress. In addition to development of the project website and draft dissemination and exploitation plan, significant progress has been made with the detection system and some tests have already been performed on the samples sent by the Topic Manager. Images from initial tests (using samples with machined flaws) were presented and discussed at the meeting.

A basic design of the measurement head has been completed and RECENDT and Innolas are continuing to work closely together to develop the design of the excitation and detection lasers to meet the project requirements. 

Kuka have developed a basic layout for the robot cell and a finalised design layout is expected in early March, following receipt of the final test specimen dimensions.
