NEW – Seminar Fiber Placement

5. November - 9:30 - 6. November - 14:30

Automated tape laying processes are often used for series applications in the production of high-performance components made of fiber composites. Depending on their technological characteristics, these can be divided into Automated Fiber Placement (AFP), Automated Tape Laying (ATL) and Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) in order to meet the requirements of different industries. The selection of the appropriate production technology plays a decisive role in the realization of composite structures with the desired properties and the fulfillment of specific application requirements.

Automated Fiber Placement is a robot-assisted process in which tows (narrow, defined, cut semi-finished fiber products) are used in various forms (towpreg, prepreg, dry or tows with a thermoplastic matrix). The robot places the tows specifically on a placement tool. This enables the production of complex and end-contoured preforms, which are then cured in an autoclave, consolidated in the press or injected with resin and cured, depending on the material.

Automated tape laying, which uses wider tapes, is similar to this process. This makes it possible to achieve higher load rates at the expense of lower complexity. With Fiber Patch Placement (FPP), only patches (short sections) are used instead of continuous material. These are limited in length to the gripper on the placement head of the Fiber Patch Placement system, but enable the production of very complex preforms in a smaller maximum geometry.
