Innovative welding and evaluation techniques have been developed by the ATLAS engineering group in the Physics Department at the University of Sheffield. These techniques are part of R&D and prototyping for the construction of the ATLAS Inner Tracker (ITk) at CERN. A new detector is currently under construction and the development of lightweight and robust systems led to collaboration with the aerospace industry. Collaborating with the A*Star Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) in Singapore, these techniques will be further developed for applications in the aerospace industry.
