Abstract

Circular braiding is a composite material manufacturing process for production of bi- and triaxial tubular preforms that are usually impregnated and cured using Resin Transfer Moulding. The process currently lacks automatic generation of optimum machine control data. Helping to solve this problem, a newly developed geometry-based procedure for take-up speed optimization is applied to various complex mandrel shapes to assess its strengths and weaknesses. As a result, the error of the virtual braid angle could be reduced to a few degrees. However, in order to assess the validity of the generated process settings, it is recommended to take into account the manufacturing constraints regarding the prevention of yarn slack and fiber slip.
