Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present our investigation on chemical and physical interaction between laser beam and tows of thermoplastic material for filament winding.

We carried out an experimental evaluation on the effect of process parameters such as the laser wave length, the interaction time, the irradiated energy, the laser spot width.
