The effect of processing temperature and placement rate on the short beam strength of carbon fibre-PEEK manufactured using a laser tape placement process

Stokes-Griffin, Christopher; Compston, Paul


The ability of a modern near infra-red laser tape placement system to produce high-quality laminates is investigated by performing short beam strength tests on samples manufactured at different process temperatures from 400 °C to 600 °C at placement rates of 100 mm/s and 400 mm/s. The temperature history in tape placement is highly dynamic and the correlation between the process control temperature, laser power and the consolidation temperature is not well understood. The complete temperature...[Show more]
