Bonding of High Temperature Thermoplastic Carbon Composites with Resistance Welding Technique


The article presents ‘state-of-the art’ on joining fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites with the use of resistance welding technique. Their welding process and potential difficulties connected with the process and quality control of a manufactured element are presented. The structure of a typical thermoplastic composite welding stand was also presented. The main welding technology elements were characterized: structure of the resistance element, implementation of the thermal process and pressure application required for joining materials. The paper also presents the required calibration ranges for a technological process with the use of strength test types SLS, DCB, SBS and nondestructive testing of joint with the ultrasonic method.
