Tri-axial overbraiding of structural beams

Old Method:

Manual wrapping of cores with  glass fabrics.
Result: Labor intensive and bulky results.
 
New Method  with Overbraiding
 
  • Automated Tri-axial braiding (Bias + UD fibers)
  • Sides have Bias/UD ratio 59/41 ,top  and bottom have 22/78
 
Result: Tight, repeatable preforms, ready for injection
