Workshop: Advanced Forming of Thermoplastic Composites

Advanced Forming of Thermoplastic Composites

Next spring TPRC will organize an advanced level course on the press-forming process for thermoplastic composites. During this two-day event you will learn the ins and outs of the press-forming technology. The course combines classroom sessions with practical lab exercises and elaborates on the following topics:

  • Process parameter selection based on material properties
  • Effect of tool design on manufacturability and part quality
  • Influence of blank handling systems on formability
  • The cause of process induced defects and tricks to prevent these
  • The use of predictive process simulation tools
