Experimental evaluation of automated fiber placement manufacturing parameters


Composites are being continually used to fulfill nowadays demands for lighter and high performance parts. Automated Fiber Placement is being used as a technique to archive best results to manufacture complex composite parts. However, the process induces some defects in laminate, such as Gaps, Overlaps and tow drops. This work studied the correlation between manufacturing main parameters: feedrate, tow temperature, tow tension and compaction pressure; and laminate defects. Tests have revealed that it is possible to control the parameters to avoid such defects.
