Robotic die-less forming strategy for fiber-reinforced plastic composites production

Jan-Erik Rath, Lea-Sophie Schwieger & Thorsten Schüppstuhl
Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) production in many cases involves expensive molds, which especially hinders cost-effective production of small series and prototypes. In metal parts production, incremental sheet forming (ISF) is an established process for creating individual parts and small series through a flexible and die-less process. Establishing a similar process for FRP is desirable but challenging, as deformation mechanisms of endless FRP differ significantly from metal sheets. Using just two movable standard tools, bending and shear...
