Dielectric heating of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastics

Traditional manufacturing processes for continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastics are characterized by excess energy requirements and long cycle times. Therefore research has focused on the development of a dielectric heating process for these types of materials to get a fast and energy efficient production process. The process has been successfully developed on a laboratory scale. Further research will focus on scaling up.
