Filament winding is a controlled, automated process in which fiber rovings are pulled from large spools through a polymeric resin and wound upon a mandrel. The orientation and tension of the fiber can also be carefully controlled so that successive layers are applied or oriented differently from previous layer. The winding requirements are programmed and managed using specially designed winding software. Once the winding is complete, the part and tool are cured to a specific computer controlled heat cycle, which solidifies the composite part.
Expert Composite Filament Winding Environments in Southern California
If your company depends on specific environmental specifications to ensure the quality of your COPV (composite overwrapped pressure vessel) or other composite filament winding application our HVAC services can help you by designing, installing and maintaining the controlled environment to fit your needs. How? It is a straight forward issue of experience: We know that composite filament winding resin polymers can rely heavily on maintaining a static environment for quality adhesion. We have experience designing systems to maintain your specific temperature and humidity specs effectively and reliably.
Why COPV Lab Experience Matters
Temperature variations outside of your measured control specifications can cost you time, wasted product, money and potentially the ability to maintain existing or acquire new clients. The Cutting Edge Services team understands the science behind the process as well as the ISO standards that you need to achieve to maintain your quality standards. Our team has installed specialized HVAC, refrigeration and heating systems for winding applications in aerospace, manufacturing and other industries.
