Real Time Gauging of Wrinkle, Shear and Bridge Formation in an Automated Composite Manufacturing Process

 

While automated composites production with sheet prepreg may soon reach commercial status, significant gains in production speed and accuracy also require a rapid process that ensures that components are being built correctly. Through the application of novel tooling and robotics, a new automated manufacturing process has the capability to shear, drape, flatten and crease sheet prepreg on complex mould surfaces. This process has been paired with a laser and machine-vision system that quantitatively monitors and documents the occurrence of shear, wrinkles and bridging in real time. This paper describes the automated monitoring of a small, complex part. Because the gauging process is conducted automatically in real time, remedial action can be taken immediately if necessary.
