RLW Navigator is a three year, €3.9M, project funded by the European Commission under the ICT-Factories of the Future programme. The project will deliver an innovative Process Navigator to configure, integrate, test and validate the application of Remote Laser Welding (RLW) in automotive assembly. Addressing today’s critical need for frequently changing operating conditions and product mix provisions, RLW Navigator will serve as crucial enabler for embedding new processes, such as RLW, in future energy efficient smart factories.
