Eastern Counties Branch Technical Talk

This free event is organised by our Eastern Counties Branch for our members. Other members and non-members are very welcome to join us.

Overview:-  Electron beam welding (EBW) is a fusion process whereby two metals are welded together using a beam of high-velocity high-power electrons. EBW is widely used for Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Defense, Semiconductor, Nuclear, Oil & Gas, Power Generation and a variety of other industries. EBW has ability to join dissimilar materials, is free from potential gas contamination due to its vacuum operation, and great for delicate and localised assemblies with low distortion and very high-strength. Advantages of EBW such as high-precision and very good repeatability are owing to its machine-controlled automation, where precise parameters can be machine-programmed.

Eastern Counties Branch Committee invites their members to join our November technical talk on Electron-beam welding (EBW) quality improvement using machine learning (ML) tools and techniques. This event will discover the latest research as part of Norbert Sieczkiewicz (BSc, MSc, IWE, MWeldI)’s PhD on deep learning frameworks on EBW quality assurance systems. Current state-of-the-art deep learning techniques used in Welding 4.0 will be explored along with their potential applications, limitations and recommendations.

Speaker:-  Norbert Sieczkiewicz

Speaker Biography:-  Norbert Sieczkiewicz holds BSc in Mechanical Engineering and MSc in Materials Science from West Pomeranian University, Poland. He has an International Welding Engineer diploma and is a Member of The Welding Institute (MWeldI). Norbert is currently a final year NSIRC Engineering PhD student funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation (LRF) at Lancaster University and supported by TWI. Norbert recently started as a Science and Research Engineer at Dyson.
