Automated Fibre Placement with In-Situ Ultraviolet Curing and On-The-Fly Resin Impregnation
Vehicle emissions contribute to up to one third of the world's air pollution . Reducing vehicle weight is crucial to reducing these emissions. Composite materials offer high specific strength-to-weight ratios which make them ideal for lightweight applications; however, existing composite manufacturing is slow and expensive. Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) is a state-of-the-art composite manufacturing process but is limited by the low complexity of parts it can produce; the cost, size and...[Show more]
