Summary


Introduced C
-
ply concept


A new family of herringbone tapes which can
improve speed, quality, and defect tolerance in
composites manufacturing.


Professor Stephen Tsai (
Stanford University)


There is still lack of capability of ACM techniques, such
as ATL and AFP to produce high performance,
relatively
small
, geometrically
complex

parts such as
honeycomb cored sandwich
panels.



There is a need for the development of a detailed
understanding

of the conformation, deformation, and
variation of properties of the
reinforcement

used and
the interaction between these factors with process
conditions and their effects on the
quality

of the parts.


Professor Kevin Potter (
Univ. Bristol)


In
-
situ consolidation process for
thermoplastic

tape placement.



Suggested adaptive consolidation
roller and advanced laying
strategies.

Professor Ralf Schledjewski (
U.
Leoben
, Austria
)


Bell Helicopter experience on the
introduction of large
-
scale
automated composite
manufacturing and outlook of
sustainment in a challenging
environment

Dr. Paul Oldroyd (
Bell Helicopter
)


Showed advantages of fiber placement
machines over traditional tape layers.



A number of R & D programs at NLR
where automated fiber placement was
used.
