COMPOSITES EXCHANGE by E-Learning Composites Academy
JEC World 2022 DAY 3:Innovative 4.0 training dedicated to the transformation processes of thermoset and thermoplastic composites
Andy Whitham will present Cygnet Texkimp's pioneering development work in the field of high-speed, high-volume filament winding. He will explain how the company's Multi Axis Winder and 3D Winder technologies are helping to overcome the challenge of achieving volume through filament winding and how Cygnet Texkimp is supporting future demand for high-volume composites particularly in the aerospace and automotive markets, including the manufacture of hydrogen storage tanks. Using industry case studies, he will show how the integration of specialist fibre handling techniques, automation and third-party monitoring equipment can increase speed and production rates, while maintaining accuracy and repeatability.
