Braiding entails three yarns or more that are intertwined mechanically: no yarns are twisted around one another. The continuous nature of the braids enables the load to be equally shared throughout the structure. The fibers are folded into a helix that resembles a spring wire.
Braided technology is capable of creating optimal designs of braided composites. The technologies can be applied to varying methods used in molding for different configurations. Properties of the braided composite are customized through choosing design parameters.
Braids can be popularly and easily manufactured and used as a fabric to enable free standing with the right and stable positioning or angle for a certain diameter.
There are various ways to use braiding technology in the manufacturing sector. Some of the primary applications include:
- Use in commercial aircraft to make a containment for the fan blade
- Used in structures that are characterized by the absorption of
