Claim of US Patent No. 10,893,614

1. A method for producing a composite material component with an integrated electrical conductor circuit, comprising:a) applying the electrical conductor circuit to a surface of a support,
b) applying a thermally activatable adhesive to the conductor circuit with a print head, wherein a position of the print head can be controlled in order to follow a profile of elements or conductor tracks of the conductor circuit,
c) placing the surface of the support, which surface is provided with the conductor circuit, onto a component blank composed of composite material which is still to be cured, and
d) curing the component blank in an autoclave at a temperature above the activation temperature of the adhesive, so that the adhesive is activated and adhesively bonds the conductor circuit to the component.
