Our FW machine is used for creating composite material structures. The process involves winding filaments under varying amounts of tension over a mandrel. The mandrels rotates while a carriage moves horizontally, laying down fibers in the desired pattern. The process can be well suited to automation, where the tension on the filaments can be carefully controlled. Filaments that are applied with high tension results in a final product with higher rigidity and strength; lower tension results in more flexibility
