M. Kaden, R. Keck
Keywords: repair, rework, laser, inductive heating, carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics
The repair concept implies new non-contact thermal machining tools like a UV-Laser-System. The damage removal and the patch preparation by cutting the patch plies as well as the preparation of the repair surface can also be done by the laser system. Additionally, we investigated into inductive based patch integration.
