Braiding is generally used for the mass production of composite parts. The braiding process consist of the yarns that follow specific paths to braid the fibers. They build binding patterns quite similar to woven fabrics, but they run at the desired angle in both directions like a helix around the tube.
The braiding process is suitable for axisymmetrical geometries such as cylindrical, rectangular cross-sections. The process provides winding filaments over a rotating mandrel in desired orientations. Dry fibers are wound to the mandrel and after the winding process, the resin is needed to create a composite matrix for the braided part.
Since braiding provides a high level of fiber ratio and superior mechanical properties, braided parts are used for special applications where specific properties of the composite are required. In addition, braiding needs to be completed with a suitable resin injection such as High-Pressure RTM in order to get durable composite parts.
Advantages of braiding:
- Superior mechanical properties
- Outstanding durability
- Suitable for mass production
- Precise fiber orientation
