S GL Group announces cooperation with AMC that patented 3D winding technology using continuous composite fibers (e.g. glass, basalt or carbon).
Automotive Management Consulting (AMC)
SGL Group has contributed its experience in fiber-reinforced composites and technologies for automation of manufacturing processes. Thus, using SGL Sigrapreg TowPreg products, a bicycle handle bar stem, chainring and bottle holder were manufactured according to the innovative technology and exhibited at JEC World 2018.
3D winding process involves winding pre-impregnated fiber bundles (TowPreg) on tubes of different configurations between cylinder guides.
Winding thickness, filament tensile force and fiber placement can vary depending on requirements to create 3D products with preset parameters. If considered necessary, the final component can be further processed.
