Fraunhofer IPT ()

The aim of Fraunhofer IPT is to fully exploit the potential of fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites based on prepreg technology and to achieve at the same time a broad industrial application. Investigations at Fraunhofer IPT have proven that the use of laser-assisted tape placement enables high lay-up rates of thermoplastic prepregs (tapes) with in situ consolidation regarding the local stiffening of plastics and composites. After the optimization of this process for the manufacture of carbon fiber-reinforced components Fraunhofer IPT developed and successfully demonstrated strategies to manufacture advanced composite components via laser-assisted tape placement that combine different polymers and fiber-reinforcements. By the possibility to apply fully automated the most beneficial material in the place, orientation and quantity that's needed, a cross-industrial applicability of this process is ensured.
