Abstract

The purpose of this engineering design was to fabricate a waterproof coat for a carbon fibre reinforced polymer component. Austenitic stainless steel foil with 50μm thickness was used as the raw material. Deep-drawn elements that fit the geometry of the given part were welded together to form the coat. The deep drawing tools and the welding machine were self-designed and manufactured. The cutting of the blank and then the welding technology of the deep-drawn tablecloths were carried out with a TruMark 5010 marking laser made by Trumpf
