A literature review of quality control for automated lay-up processes of CFRP
Automated lay-up of carbon fiber reinforced polymers is an established method for producing large parts in the aerospace industry. Currently, the quality control for this automated manufacturing process is performed by humans. In the last years, research has focused on increasing productivity of automated lay-up, thus the automation of the quality control has been taken into consideration. The objectives of the paper are to review the requirements for quality control based on an overview of the possible defects in automated lay-up and to evaluate their fulfilment by both visual quality control by humans and automated quality control systems.
