If you could make a one piece preform, with varying ply thickness and fibres aligned with impact load direction would this be a big step forward?
With a ShapeTex preform we believe we can make a single preform for a variety of helmets.
Most helmets are made by laminating lots of plies into a tool by hand. We expect this could be done in a single preform in a semi automated process.
Do you have an application where a ShapeTex preform would make your manufacturing process more efficient?
