Cost-efficient preforming process for complex high-performance fibre-reinforced composites
In this study a preforming process for a cost-efficient manufacturing of high-performance fibre-reinforced polymer composites is presented. The key approaches towards achieving this challenging goal are modern stitching technologies combined with thermally induced preform stabilisation. To proof an industrial implication not only excellent mechanical properties of the final product but also appropriate preforming and design concepts as well as adjusted quality assurance methods are demonstrated.
