Forming and overmolding of thermoplastic multi-layer UD-tape laminates has become increasingly important due to its potential for large-scale production. In the process the tape laminates have to be heated above melting temperature of the polymer in an infrared heater and then transported into the mold. To guarantee the formability of the laminate the temperature has to be maintained above the melting temperature during handling. To improve part quality a preforming of the tape laminate priordoi:10.5445/ir/1000127886 fatcat:llq4seud6fayxpw6h2zv6yqbre
