The potential of Insitu Laser-AFP for thermoplastic composites for high performance structures

Nowotny, Sebastian and Doll, Georg and Chadwick, Ashley and Dreher, Patrik and Fricke, Daniel (2018) The potential of Insitu Laser-AFP for thermoplastic composites for high performance structures. 5th Workshop on structural analysis of lightweight structures, 2018-10-18, Mutters, Österreich.

This talk gives an overview of the current state for Insitu Laser Automated Tape Placement for thermoplastic composites at the DLR. The process allows in-situ manufacturing of large-scale, complex structures. Using this tapeplacement facility, expensive and time-consuming manual processes such as preforming and vacuum bagging processes are not necessary. Furthermore, the process data acquisition and monitoring system allows the component to be analysed in-situ, reducing the costs of non-destructive testing. This facility has been used to produce structures from a number of thermoplastic materials, including PEEK, PEKK, and PPS, for both real-world applications and fundamental engineering material research. Ongoing projects at this facility include the in-situ integration of stiffening elements to aircraft skins, and research on additional welding and joining processes.
