Sample text

The technology consists of embedding previously cured reinforcement fibres into a thermoplastic foam that is then placed on top of a prepreg, or dry fabric, lay-up and vacuum bagged. 36). This method can be used during the normal autoclave cure of prepreg and for both prepreg and dry fabric can be performed whilst the lay-up is on the tool surface itself, thus saving extra steps in the manufacturing process. A version of this technology can be used at room temperatures as it utilises an ultrasonic horn that heats up a local area of the z-pin foam and preform, thus allowing a plunger to push the pre-cured reinforcement yarn into the lay-up.

Thus the production of long lengths of the preform can be slow due to the need to re-stock the yarn carriers. One of the greatest current disadvantages however is the fact that the 3D braiding process is still very much at the machinery development stage. Therefore there are limitations to the type of preform that can be made commercially and there are very few companies that have the necessary experience and equipment to manufacture these preforms. 4 KNITTING Knitting may not at first appear to be a manufacturing technique that would be suitable for use in the production of composite components and it is arguably the least used and understood of the four classes of textile processes described here.

1988; McConnell and Popper, 1988). Unlike the 4-step process, the 2step includes a large number of yarns fixed in the axial direction and a smaller number of braiding yarns. 17) and the braiding carriers are distributed around the perimeter of the axial carrier array. The process consists of two steps in which the braiding carriers move completely though the structure between the axial carriers. This relatively simple sequence of motions is capable of forming preforms of essentially any shape, including circular and hollow.
