…DPSS Lasers DIAMOND C-Series Laser Marking Systems Marking Lasers Lasers for Welding Carbon Fiber (CFRP) Joining composite materials requires different approaches than when joining metal materials. CFRP requires pre-processing. The resin needs to be ablated by a laser so that the fiber structure…
…CFRP surface preparation. Peel-plies are sheets of woven fabric material that are laminated onto the
CFRP surface prior to curing the matrix
resin. They are removed before adhesive
bonding, leaving a clean surface. The main
drawback of peel-plies is that they increase
surface cleaning must not cause any damage to the underlying CFRP and especially the load-carrying fibers.
Several techniques are currently in use for the cleaning
and preparation of CFRP parts prior to adhesive bonding. Mechanical abrading is mainly used, but there are…
…high-performance UV excimer lasers, it is possible to clean CFRP surfaces fast, thoroughly, and gently at the same time. The cleanCELL production cell from CleanLasersysteme GmbH represents a turn-key solution combining technical competence in CFRP pretreatment with excimer laser precision. After…
