New sensor for real-time process analytics paves the way to serial production in the composites industry
The new tool-mountable sensor from NETZSCH controls the quality of CFRP parts during high-volume production. The performance of the sensor was tested during the run-time of the BMBF funded and AVK awarded project "OPTO-Light" involving the partners ARGES, AZL of RWTH Aachen University, BMW, Carl Zeiss, KraussMaffei, Precitec and Sensortherm.

It was shown that this new sensor creates a huge benefit for the intelligent self-adapting process management. Based on the curing behavior the aim was to compensate deviations in semi-finished products and to reduce cycle times and scrap. The dielectric analyzer and sensor were first shown at the JEC Europe in Paris last week.
