From patch to patient: FPP goes medical

From patch to patient: FPP goes medical Due to its excellent specific weight-related properties as well as outstanding fatigue resistance, fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) plays a major role in the production of customized medical device structures. Especially for heavily loaded extracorporeal parts like prosthetics and orthotics, it is the material of choice. Germany is one…

Fiber Patch Placement in aerostructures: Investigation on material equivalency

Fiber Patch Placement in aerostructures: Investigation on material equivalency   Fiber Patch Placement is an advanced technology for automated fiber lay-up of geometrically complex composites and reinforcements. The individual orientation of each fiber patch along load paths opens new potential for applications in aerospace. However, since the Fiber Patch Placement laminates uses discontinuous fibers, the…
