Automated Braiding of Dry Carbon Preforms for Aerospace Structural Components

Video presenting the different steps for automated manufacturing of braided preforms: 1) Mandrel geometry definition, 2) Braid geometry definition, 3) Robot path planning and simulation, 4) Robotized braiding, 5) Braid angle inspection by automated image analysis, 6) Braid thickness inspection by non contact laser measurement.

Necessary rock studies of the gabbro and andesite basalt groups for the suitability as the raw material base for the production of continuous basalt fiber (CBF). A unique technique including laboratory melting and pilot-industrial melting at the high-tech equipment.
