A laser tape placement process for selective reinforcement of steel with CF/PA6 composites: Effects of surface preparation and laser angle

Stokes-Griffin, Christopher; Ehard, S; Kollmannsberger, A; Compston, Paul; Drechsler, K


This paper investigates the manufacture of selectively reinforced hybrid metal/composite laminates in a laser tape placement process. Unidirectionally reinforced carbon fibre/PA 6 composite tapes were applied to 2.0mm mild steel substrates. The effects of applying various surface treatments to the steel substrates were investigated including grit blasting and/or the addition of 60μm and 100μm PA 6 film coatings. The effect of the laser angle was also studied. The substrate surface was...[Show more]
