New Development Stage in Thermoplastic Tape-Placement Technology: Towards Greater Automation
The thermoplastic tape-placement technique offers excellent potential for the production of large-area components from fibre-reinforced plastics. The process allows a high level of integration and automation. In addition, the costly, time-consuming autoclave cycle can be dispensed with altogether. Industrial scale application of the thermoplastic tape-placement process has until now been hindered by a number of unsolved problems. Many innovations at the Institut für Verbundwerkstoffe (institute for composite materials) over the last two years have meant that this process is now at a stage in which application of this technology for series production is imminent.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
