In the composite industry, untwisted and continuous fibers are referred to as a tow. Its size varies depending on the manufacturing process. In filament winding, around 12,000 tow lengths or more can be employed.
Fiber volume ratio is the proportion of fiber volume to composite volume. When it comes to composites reinforced with fiber materials, the fiber to volume ratio is critical. Usually, the mechanical qualities of a material are improved by a higher volume ratio.
Curing is accomplished by exposing the composite to a higher temperature for a period of time, prompting the composite material to harden.
The winding process can be accomplished with a variety of fibers. Carbon fibers are the most commonly used fibers for filament winding. Carbon fibers are preferred because of their exceptional mechanical properties compared to other fibers.
- High strength-to-weight-ratio due to high fiber volume ratio
- Desired fiber orientations to satisfy requirements
- Lightweight and non-corrosive alternative
- Cost-effective composite manufacturing with a low labor cost
Of course, we can replace the product you want with a lighter composite counterpart. For more please information Contact Us.
Our filament winding machine can wind up to 6 meters in length and 5 meters in diameter. For more information please Contact Us.
