What is Filament Winding?
Filament winding is a composite manufacturing process in which continuous fibers or rovings are applied to a shape, known as a mandrel, to create a composite part. Common filament-wound parts include pressure vessels, tubes and drive shafts. The use of a CNC filament winding machine provides maximum control over fiber placement and uniformity. Once cured, the mandrel can be removed leaving a lightweight hollow composite part.
