This paper introduces the potential use of flexible intensity distributions for thermoplastic tape placement. The enabling tool for this technology is the Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL). VCSEL make it possible to electronically control laser-emitting lines independently for the required intensity. Several potential fields of action were identified and are presented. One exemplary case will be considered in detail: the radiant exposure for the case of tape placement around edges with conventional (homogeneous) laser spots.
