Stacking based on continuous carbon fibre tow

Because the process is automated, the cost for producing pre-forms is typically much lower than hand-laid manufacturing. © Seriforge San Francisco-based Seriforge has developed a new Z-axis fibre stitching process which addresses a number of issues in processing advanced multi-ply preforms.

Such composites, the company points out, are more complicated to process than traditional materials like metals, being anisotropic, with different properties in different directions due to their 2D ply layer build-up. They are also not scalable for cost effective mass production and are predominately built up manually and subject to variability in their performance from part to part.
