An inverse model for optimisation of laser heat flux distributions in an automated laser tape placement process for carbon-fibre/PEEK
High power diode lasers have enabled higher placement rates to be achieved in automated tape placement (ATP) of thermoplastic-based composite materials. Laser ATP heads in published literature employ homogeneous linear or rectangular laser spots, however a variety of solutions are available to produce customised irradiance profiles. No efforts to date have investigated what a more ideal heat flux profile would be for laser ATP in terms of length and distribution. This paper describes a method...[Show more]
