Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2020011505
Kind Code:

Abstract:
To provide a system and a method for managing the placement of tow ends.SOLUTION: Tows are laid up over a tuning table. A first position of a first tow end of the tow and a second position of a second tow end of the tow are measured. A first error between the first position of the first tow end and an expected position for the first tow end, and a second error between the second position of the second tow end and an expected position for the second tow end are computed. A determination is made as to whether at least one of the first error or the second error is outside of selected tolerances. If the first error is outside of selected tolerances, a start timing offset of the tow placement system is adjusted, and if the second error is outside selected tolerances, a stop timing offset of the tow placement system is adjusted.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 6
