THIS PROJECT HAS RECEIVED FUNDING FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION’S SEVENTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME AS A PART OF “RESEARCH FOR THE BENEFIT OF SME ASSOCIATIONS” ACTION

The TailorWeld project aims at developing and demonstrating an innovative laser welding system, which uses simple and robust diffractive optical elements, to increase the flexibility and simplify the application of laser welding thus removing the key barrier to entry for a large number of SME’s fabricators. Most existing laser systems are fitted with either a standard process head or a 2D galvanometer scanner – both of which deliver a “standard” Gaussian or “top-hat” energy distribution to the work piece. However, this relatively simplistic energy distribution is not directly suitable for many applications and laser welding significance expertise is required in order to develop acceptable process parameters. Laser beam welding with tailored energy distribution produced by galvanometer beam scanner is possible but this technology is not economically attractive. Diffractive optical elements are a robust, simple tool and are capable of producing (virtually) unlimited tailored energy distributions.

Total project realisation cost 6 799 639,00 PLN
European Union participation: 5 223 493,00 PLN
Realisation period: from 1.10.2014 r. to 31.09.2016 r.


PROJECT HAS RECEIVED FUNDING FROM THE NATIONAL CENTRE FOR RESEARCH
AND DEVELOPMENT AND NATIONAL FUND FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AND WATER MANAGEMENT.


The prime objective of the project is to initiate the production of two innovative energy storage system groups able to work with renewable energy sources in decentralized generating stations. The first (A) group of storage systems is dedicated to cooperate with big renewable energy sources, whereas the second (B) group enables the storage of energy directly at individual recipients’ facilities (households).

The project’s prime objective will be achieved in research phase which consists of two subphases: industrial research and development and, further, the introduction stage.

The realization of research phase will result in generating technological assumptions and the production of cabinet battery systems’ prototypes for the two target production groups, group A (High power and high capacity systems, above 1MWh) and group B (smaller modular battery systems with power up to 50 kWh), respectively. As a part of the research phase the industrial tests will be conducted which embrace performance, thermal, and mechanical tests of separate cells, modules, and battery cabinets. The development works will be carried out in mechanical, electric, electronic, and software designs of single module and battery cabinet.

The realization of implementation phase will result in the building and equipping of production site (in, among others, production base, assembly line, and quality laboratory) dedicated to the production of the both groups of electric energy storage systems.

The two energy storage systems being the result of the project realisation will be constructed using of lithium-polymer cells. This technology will help to achieve higher density of the stored energy and profoundly lengthen the life of the offered solutions.
