Winding techniques with carbon cloths

Schunk started within the HITHEX project to manufacture tubes with carbon cloths via a winding technique. The materials were characterized and can be further developed and improved based on the test results. The winding of carbon cloths offers the potential of a high speed manufacturing technique for cylindrical composites with bidirectional reinforcement. Such reinforcements are required in case of internal pressure loads. The technique can be used for CFRP-as well as C/C-and CMC-components.

Further improvements are necessary to use the full potential of the properties of carbon cloth. Reliable processes are feasible by an investment in an optimised winding-up device, which will not be realized within the project.

The technique can be used after completion of the project and contributes to a broader manufacturing technology.
