Abstract
(EN)
A spreading apparatus for use with fibre-reinforced composite tapes, and related methods are disclosed. The spreading apparatus comprises an input side to receive an incoming tape to be spread, and an output side from which tape is delivered after spreading. The apparatus further comprises a tape heater (150, 250, 650) to in use apply heat to a tape; and a tape spreader (100, 1, 200, 600) to in use to apply contact pressure to the heated tape to thereby spread the tape.

L'invention concerne un appareil d'étalement destiné à être utilisé avec des bandes composites renforcées par des fibres, et des procédés associés. L'appareil d'étalement comprend un côté d'entrée pour recevoir une bande entrante à étaler, et un côté de sortie à partir duquel la bande est distribuée après l'étalement. L'appareil comprend en outre un dispositif de chauffage de bande (150, 250, 650) à utiliser pour appliquer de la chaleur à une bande; et un dispositif d'étalement de bande (100, 1 200, 600) à utiliser pour appliquer une pression de contact à la bande chauffée pour ainsi étaler la bande.
