Abstract

© 2016, European Conference on Composite Materials, ECCM. All rights reserved. In the composites sector, where fast growth is forecast to increase even further, use of in-process monitoring to understand and improve manufacturing processes and the resulting parts has huge potential. Despite having been used in academia for some time, such technologies are not popular in industry. The reasons for this are many and varied, however it is notable that academia and industry communicate their knowledge, both within and without their organisations, very differently. This paper explores these differences in the composites community and reports on the development of an industry-targeted resource for the case of dielectric cure monitoring, designed to enable industrial uptake of this technology and to provide a template for others.
