Continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTPCs) are strong, light, inexpensive, recyclable, and easy to shape. These attributes make CFRTPCs highly attractive for manufacturing use in the aerospace, automotive, and energy industries.
EWI associates Jeff Ellis, Miranda Marcus, and Matt Nitsch have recently validated through-transmission laser welding (TTLW) as an effective joining method for thermoplastic composites. Their work is discussed in Advanced Joining Process for Thermoplastic Composites. This paper can be downloaded – for FREE – by completing the form on this page.
