Selective Tape-Laying for Cost-Effective Manufacturing of Optimised Multi-Material Components

Stellar project successfully exhibited at Composites Innovation 2016

The Stellar project generated much interest with its innovative automated fibre placement technologies at Composites Innovation 2016, 22-23rd June 2016, Sheffield with talks from project partners and an exhibition stand including samples and parts made within the project.

The talks will were:

  • Recent Advances in the Automated Processing of Thermoplastic Tapes – Tido Peters, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT
  • Developments in Programming and Simulation for Composite Lay-up Manufacturing – John Reed, CG Tech
  • Hybrid Structures Manufactured by Using Thermoplastic Tape Placement for Local Reinforcement Build-up – Ralf Schledjewski, Montanuniversität Leoben
