Summary

5 Introduced C-ply concept A new family of herringbone tapes which can improve speed, quality, and defect tolerance in composites manufacturing. Professor Stephen Tsai ( Stanford University)

6 There is still lack of capability of ACM techniques, such as ATL and AFP to produce high performance, relatively small, geometrically complex parts such as honeycomb cored sandwich panels. There is a need for the development of a detailed understanding of the conformation, deformation, and variation of properties of the reinforcement used and the interaction between these factors with process conditions and their effects on the quality of the parts. Professor Kevin Potter ( Univ. Bristol)

7 In-situ consolidation process for thermoplastic tape placement. Suggested adaptive consolidation roller and advanced laying strategies. Professor Ralf Schledjewski ( U. Leoben, Austria )

8 Bell Helicopter experience on the introduction of large-scale automated composite manufacturing and outlook of sustainment in a challenging environment Dr. Paul Oldroyd ( Bell Helicopter )

9 Showed advantages of fiber placement machines over traditional tape layers. A number of R & D programs at NLR where automated fiber placement was used. Dr. H.G.S.J. Thuis ( Natl. Aero. Lab, Netherlands)

10 Software tools for simulation. – Technical university of Dresden, Germany – Ecole Centrale Nantes, France – Siemens PLM Software – CGTech Vericut – LEL-CINTEQ, Brazil Materials issues – Automation in resin infusion (CYTEC Engineered Materials) – Out of autoclave (Concordia University) – Prepreg tack (U.
