    Large robot platform at ZLP in Augsburg

    A large robot platform is set up to perform various automated manufacturing processes in industrial scale. To ensure the quality of the parts, among other techniques, contactless lock-in thermography is implemented. This test method detects defects in depth of the parts, for example by means of optical excitation and temperature signals.

Implementation of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) structures in commercial aircrafts is increasing. Therefore DLR Centre for Lightweight Production Technology (ZLP) in Augsburg is intensively finding solutions to manufacture these large parts assuring their high quality and rentability.

DLR maintains two ZLP sites at Stade and Augsburg. The Augsburg site focusses on textile and infusion technology (duromer), thermoplastics processing, production-integrated quality assurance, assembly and joining technology, and robotics for fibre-composite production.
