3D Weaving

The concept of weaving a 3D shape in a single piece, using materials such as alumina, carbon and glass fibre woven in the X, Y and Z directions to make a real 3D structure is a reality! The combination of a computerised design programme and a purpose-built weaving machine, which is capable of producing fibre pre-forms in T, U and I shaped cross-sections, can provide a composite that is lighter and stronger than many conventional metallic components: it’s also cost-competitive.
