Reliable monitoring methods are essential for maintaining a high level of quality control in laser welding. In industrial processes, monitoring systems allow for quick decisions on the quality of the weld, allowing for high productions rates and reducing overall cost due to scrap. A monitoring system using infrared, ultraviolet, audible sound, and acoustic emission was implemented for monitoring CO2 laser welds in real-time. The signals were analyzed using time-frequency analysis techniques…

When AE (Acoustic Emission) meets AI (Artificial Intelligence)
On the one hand, in recent years, artificial intelligence is a new trend that showed itself as a very powerful tool to overcome both the complexity and/or the large amount of data to be treated. On


Frequency-time characteristics of air-borne signals from laser welds
The acoustic emissions from laser lap welds in stainless steel sheet were recorded and analyzed. The acoustic signals emanating from the weld were sensed with an instrument microphone and analyzed
Uncertainty, information, and time-frequency distributions
Renyi information of the third order is used to provide an information measure on time-frequency distributions and the results suggest that even though this new measure tracks time-bandwidth results for two Gabor log-ons separated in time and/or frequency, the information measure is more general and provides a quantitative assessment of the number of resolvable components in a time frequency representation.
Improved time-frequency representation of multicomponent signals using exponential kernels
It is found that the exponential distribution after its exponential kernel function is very effective in diminishing the effects of cross terms while retaining most of the properties which are useful for a time-frequency distribution.
