IncWell's partner seeks technologies to provide non-destructive evaluation of self-pierce rivet joints.
In modern automotive assemblies, materials are joined in a variety of ways. Multi-material Body in White (BIW) structures, along with various cold joing technologies, such as Flow Drill Screw (FDS), clinching and self-pierce rivet, can be difficult to inspect for secure bonding using current evaluation methods.
IncWell's partner requires the ability to inspect and evaluate joints produced by self-pierce riveting in BIW structures.
The successful technology will:
While inline applications have the highest potential for implementation, offline evaluation is still of interest.
IncWell's partner prefers technologies with a functional prototype.
When responding to this request, please be sure to provide a non-confidential description of the technology you propose along with information regarding your alignment with the Key Success Criteria as well as your desired business relationship with IncWell's partner.
