Laboratory of Innovative Techniques for Advanced Materials Welding (TISMA)
• WELDING TECHNOLOGIES
• HYBRID WELDING TECHNOLOGIES
• DIAGNOSTIC OF WELDED JOINTS
• TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER
The TISMA laboratory is focused to stimulate the development of new skills, processes and technologies vital for the regional economy and for the industrial fields. The research activities are founded on welding processes such as laser, electric arc with low and high intensity (Capacity Discharge Welding), and using the heat generated by friction (Friction Stir Welding). Combining simultaneously these welding sources a wide range of new materials, with low weldability and difficult to weld with traditional welding techniques, could be welded in homogeneous and heterogeneous joints. The skills of the research team are available for the big regional industries and small/medium companies interested to the applied researches for production systems, testing and controls.
