Filament Winding – The Basics

Filament Winding

Filament winding is the process of winding fiber material and resin around a shape, known as a mandrel, to create composite product. The process of filament winding is typically used to create circular composite products with a hollow core. The filament winding process can utalize many different fibers and resins to achieve desired characteristics for the finished component. The end result is an extremely efficient process to create low cost, lightweight, and strong composite materials.
