Development of An Inline Quality Measurement System For Tufting Process

598 205


Missing carbon fibre reinforced plastic production facilities which are fully automated are hindering to the manufacture of large-scale CFRP-components. A two-stage procedure consisting of a preforming process and a resin transfer moulding process is recommended for the manufacturing of composites in large scales. Starting point of the preform process are usually flat textiles structures such as woven or multiaxial. After a precut process they further processed in a sequence of handling, forming, joining and edging to complex, near-net-shape textile preform. Afterwards the preform is consolidated via a resin transfer moulding process. Because the preforming process is only partly automatable, high costs arise.
