To solve the problem of load transmission into thin walled CFRP Structures, a new joining technology is being developed (Multi Layer Insert – MLI). It consists of multiple thin metal foils to distribute load optimally into every single CFRP layer. The placement process for the metal layers is integrated into an Automated Fiber Placement system. In this paper, a process sequence of MLI placement is presented containing the following steps: stockpiling of metal layers, separation, handling, positioning, lay up and fixation of metal layers during fiber placement. Moreover, the monitoring and control concept is discussed.
