ooa prepreg technology
OOA Prepreg Technology
  • Prepregs designed specifically for processing without the autoclave
  • Dates back to 1990’s
  • Used only for Secondary and Non-Structural Parts
  • Today, for Primary/Secondary Aerospace Structures
  • Airbus A350 XWB Secondary Wing Panel Sets, 2013
  • Automotive body, Racing, Marine, Infrastructure
  • Newer OOA prepreg systems has been aided by a better
    • Understanding of mechanisms of air extraction
    • Tailoring resin rheology

advantages of ooa technology
Advantages of OOA Technology
  • Potential processing cost reduction
    • Autoclaves are expensive equipment capital
    • Less expensive tooling material (OOA typically low-moderate cure temperature)
    • Energy savings
  • Increased Production / Low Cycle-time
    • Reduced Overheads
  • Large sized structures manufacturing can be facilitated
  • Sandwich panels can be cured more easily
  • Larger manufacturer and subcontractor base

Automated Manufacturing
  • Automated Tape Laying
    • Single wide UD tape (6’’ to 12’’)
    • Flat or Gentle Contour parts
    • High Lay-up rate
  • Automated Fiber Placement
    • Single or Multiple tape (0.25’’ to 0.5’’)
    • Smaller parts with Complex Geometries
    • Debulkingachieved by Roller Pressure

Automated Manufacturing

Materials Options

  • Resins: Any, e.g. epoxy, polyester, vinylester, phenolic
  • Fibers: Any. But must be provided in the form of a uni-directional tape; with a width of 0.125-0.5 inch or 6-12 inches
  • Cores: Can be used; but must be able to take the load applied by the robotic arm while laying the fibers

Main Advantages

  • This can be a very fast and therefore economic method of laying material down
  • Out of Autoclave Manufacturing
  • Can be used to make typical parts that are required in large numbers
  • Minimal labour required
  • Automated process, hence precision and accuracy

Typical Applications

  • Primarily to make Fuselage, Tail-booms, Flat plates, Aircraft Wings
  • In Aerospace and Automobile industry its used to make wide variety of parts

challenges
Challenges
  • Quality Assurance
    • To achieve internal void content as low as Autoclave Cured Materials (<1%)
    • Minimize Resin Rich areas
    • Ensure High Fiber Volume Fraction (~55%)
  • Maintain Structural Performance
    • Tensile, Shear, Compressive
  • Flexible curing with various manufacturing techniques
    • HLU, AFP, ATLor Combination
    • Cost effectiveness of the process (AFP+OOA)
quality assurance
Quality Assurance
  • OOA processing requires inherently more process control and greater manufacturing controls over lay-up, debulking, cure and inspection to ensure good part quality with low void contents
    • Dual-loop temperature control in the Autoclave/Oven
    • DSC test of the specimens to ensure proper Degree of Cure
    • Microscopy to evaluate the Void Content, the Fiber Volume and the Resin Rich Areas
  • Proper processing is key to OOA prepreg laminate quality
  • Proper Vacuum Pressure must be maintained all times
