3D woven joints and preforms are widely used in aircraft, missiles, satellites, spacecraft, helicopters, vehicles and more. By means of the low cost, fast production and lightweight solutions, 3D woven carbon fiber composites are the products of the present and the future.
Advantages of using 3D woven composites, instead of common 2D laminated composites:
3d woven carbon fiber preform
T shape woven preform
Directly woven into complex net shapes.
High fiber volume and strength.
Improved impact resistance and Compression After Impact (CAI).
Consist of X, Y and Z yarns.
Yarns can be controlled according to stability, strength and shape desired in the end product.
Possibility to choose different fiber types such as carbon fiber, aramid, glass etc. in the weaving process.
Practically zero delamination between the layers.
Reduce the cost of composite parts production.
