The long history of braiding has proven the technique as a means getting the best out of a range of fibres. For use with composites braiding offers the opportunity to harness an established high volume production method to produce preforms with enhanced performance under torsion loading and energy absorption applications.
The highly automated braiding process provides economies of scale and repeatable production at the leading edge of composites. The economies of scale possible in production can be seen in product runs as short as 50 metres.
Post-processing of the braided preforms can be completed by the client or in-house. Burgmann Packings provides a range of options, from basic resin transfer moulding to press moulding. In-house we have a range of pneumatic and hydraulic presses offering up to 200 tonnes of pressure and 3 sqm press area.
