Induction welding of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polyamid 66 in the Automotive Body Shop

Induction welding of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polyamid 66 in the Automotive Body Shop

Fiber reinforced composite can be implemented as alternative material in the lightweight design. In many cases the determining criteria for the application of such material, in lightweight constructions, can be the availability of the material itself and a load specific feasible joining technique. In this work, a continuous path driven induction welding method is investigated for the industrialization of the joining process and the resulting strength of joints in neat PA66 CF twill 2-2 laminates are analyzed. Investigations about the robustness, repeatability and the 3D functionality of the joining technique in the body shop constitute the majority of this work. Finally the mode of joint failure is investigated through an in situ CT-scanning and microscopic evaluations.
