Electroimpact, Toray, and Janicki Join Hands with Processing Technologies for Rapid Manufacture of Large Thermoplastic Composite Parts

September 22 2021

A joint development between Electroimpact, Toray Advanced Composites, and Janicki Industries has achieved a leap forward in the high-speed manufacture of large thermoplastic composite parts. The project has resulted in the development of automated, cost-effective processing technologies that can manufacture large-scale thermoplastic parts at high-speed deposition rates of up to 4000 inches (100 meters) per minute.

High-speed Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) equipment from Electroimpact has been enhanced for processing thermoplastic materials with a Variable-Spot-Size Laser heating system. This system uses a large range of processing temperatures for robust process control across individual tows to accommodate severe contours while enabling thermoplastic composite parts to be repairable during AFP lay-up, thereby reducing risk of wastage during part manufacture.
