Automated Fibre Placement with Thermoplastics, Opportunities for Future Large Composite Components
National Aerospace Laboratory NLR, Voorsterweg 31, 8316 PR Marknesse, The Netherlands
The use of composites in primary aerospace components is increasing gradually. Important drivers to use these composite materials instead of the traditional metals like aluminium and titanium are of course the weight reductions that can be realised. However, weight savings alone are not sufficient to apply composites. The desired weight savings should be combined with substantial cost savings. It is for this reason that the aerospace industries are investing in new automated fabrication techniques like tape laying and fibre placement. The present paper presents the possibilities of automated fibre placement.
