MSI Video about Carbon fiber winding driveshafts – Space technology in driveshaft tubes

  • Spools of carbon fiber filament to unwind on guides      
  • Line guides are pulley to stretch for alignment of fiber for resin  
  • Resin is applied to the proper thickness  
  • Filaments are transferred to the winding head    
  • Helical layering of the  carbon fibers in the set pattern for the application  
  • Dual head flips to the correct speed and angle  
  • Carbon fibers get layered to the proper thickness and strength.
  • Each mandrel takes hours for braided and then move to the curing ovens.
