Self-Excited Acoustic System: enhancing quality control

  • 1 AGH University of Science and Technology


This article discusses the use of self-excited acoustical systems (SAS) for the non-invasive and quick study of aluminium castings used in the automotive industry. The SAS system is incorporated into the industry 4.0 standard production line and provides valuable insights into the quality and reliability of the aluminium castings. This approach is innovative and aims to enhance the efficiency of the production process.
