Filament winding is a type of composite manufacturing process where controlled amounts of resin and oriented fibers are wound around a rotating mandrel and cured to produce the composite product.

Because of their high rigidity, reliability and superior corrosion resistance, filament-winding process have been used for a wide variety of modern engineering applications. Typical application included are composite shafts, pressure vessels, rocket motor cases, aircraft fuselages, wing parts, pressure pipelines. Glass or carbon are the most common filaments and are impregnated in a resin bath, as they are wrapped on the mandrel.

Fibre tension is important for the operation of a filament winding process. It depends on the type of fibre, part diameter and winding pattern such as ply orientations. Main advantages of filament winding process are;

  • High fiber volume is obtainable
  • Fiber and resin costs are low
  • Automated process
  • High mechanical properties
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Desired ply orientations

As we are capable of filament winding technology, we have filament winding machine that completely developed by us including mechanisms and algorithms to achieve most reliable results and desired ply orientations which affects mechanical and fiber properties.

Our filament winding machine;

  • Desired ply orientations
  • Own process algorithms
  • Four-axes
  • Own build mechanism
  • Specialised on composite shaft production

With our four-axes filament winding machine and own algorithms, we can achieve desired ply orientations on composite shaft depending on the analyses which shows the best results.
