AEC's Cutting-Edge Contributions to Missile Technology and Beyond
Composite braiding technology is another core strength for AEC. AEC’s facilities offer braidings of continuous fiber-reinforced components with complex shapes and high-temperature for commercial aerospace and defense applications. Composite braiding involves the intertwining of continuous fibers, such as carbon or glass, to form a three-dimensional structure. The fibers are precisely aligned and interlaced in a specific pattern to create a tubular or flat structure, known as a braid or a braid preform.
High Production and Complex Patterns
Automation plays a significant role in advancing the efficiency and quality of composite braiding processes in aerospace. Automated braiding machines use computer-controlled systems to precisely interlace fibers according to the desired pattern for high precision, high volume production
