Title: Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68335-10-C-0495
Award Amount: $599,983.00
 

Abstract:

This SBIR program specifically focuses in on innovative approaches to overcome the limitations associated with both the non-conformity of the rigid steel consolidation roller as well as building upon the individual tow control functionality of thermoplastic processing heads. Our main objective within the Phase I portion of the program was to develop and demonstrate at a high level, an innovative method of providing a conformable consolidation force in conjunction with the in-situ thermoplastic process. The secondary goals were to conceptually design and integrate the conformable consolidation applicator with a processing head that is able to manage multiple individual tows of tape. Phase II will focuse on further developing the concepts and process techniques developed in Phase I to provide a conformable consolidation method in conjunction with thermoplastic composite fiber placement.
