The work that B6 Sigma, Inc. has done advances the state of the art [for GMAW welding] in several specific ways including:
- Direct sensing of droplet dynamics to allow the potential of drop by drop control over droplet detachment and pulse parameters
- Auxiliary sensors that get feedback directly from the weld pool
—John Talkington, Thermadyne Industries Inc.
Electron beam direct manufacturing has significant potential to reduce lead time, to reduce cost, to provide greater manufacturing flexibility, to enhance buy-to-fly ratios, and to have a streamlining effect in the overall supply chain. One of the very critical technical challenges that remains to be solved is the quality control and quality assurance of such processes. The approach proposed by B6 Sigma focuses on monitoring and controlling the local thermal balance near the region of the beam / material interaction...We feel that this work is both innovative and shows promise of applicability to real-world situations.
—Mike Cumming, Spirit Aerosystems
We have recently become aware of advances in GMAW-P welding of titanium that B6 Sigma, Inc. has been developing under the auspices of an Army SBIR. ... We are very interested in adopting this welding technology to aero-engine applications such as integrally bladed rotors (IBR) weld repair.
The development of weld repair technology of titanium IBR will significantly benefit the jet engine industry including Pratt & Whitney. [B6's] approach has a very good potential of becoming an affordable and reliable repair method. ---- Wangen Lin, Pratt & Whitney
The exciting advances in this work are a comprehensive sensing and control of all dynamical behaviors associated with welding including the weld pool, the power supply, and the droplet dynamics for GMAW and GMAW-P. Also the ability to infer weld quality in real-time and on-machine is an important extension of current capabilities, especially for welds that are either safety critical, performance critical, or otherwise highly man-rated.
