Signing up ORNL’s weld-inspection technology

APLAIR Manufacturing Systems, an Etowah-based business, has licensed a weld-inspection technology developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. It reportedly has lots of promise for the automotive industry. 

“ORNL’s infrared imaging system can help automakers quickly determine whether a weld is good or bad without damaging the part,” the lab’s news release stated. “The infrared check can be performed in a few seconds, offering industry a low-cost and non-destructive alternative to monitor welds in real time.”

Here’s a link to the ORNL news release.
