OBJECTIVES 

This project aims to develop dry carbon fibre manufacturing methods into a fully automated, robust and efficient process that will compete with pre-impregnated typical processes regarding manufacturability, rate, performance and costs.

 

TASK

 

The designed process includes:

  • Development of an Automatic Fibre Placement (AFP) head machine to allow the lay-up of UD dry carbon tows.
  • Study of tufting process to improve handling and crack propagation properties.
  • Development of high productivity forming processes.
  • Development of infusion technologies by Vacuum Assisted Process (VAP).
