Automated welding of thermoplastic joining element on CFRP

Adhesive bonded joining elements need a high manufacturing effort. Robot based welding onto aerospace CFRP with epoxy based matrix can facilitate a reliable and efficient joining. One prerequisite here is the modification of the CFRP surface with a thermoplastic functional layer.
The research and development project “MAIplast” has been funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) (funding code 03MAI01F) and was overseen by project executing agency Jülich (PTJ).
