Today most of the production lines for aerospace parts of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) are designed for one special part or application. Changing part geometry or material would lead to a complete re-design of the whole process chain. Thus the German Aerospace Center (DLR) invented a flexible and highly automated process: A continuously automated production line "from fabric delivery to the near net shape preform - ready for consolidation". With the paper and presentation, the authors would like to contribute to the industry's increasing needs of continuously automated but highly flexible process chains for variable high volume CFRTP parts.
