The SM+ filament winding machine is ideal for high-rate part production. This machine is built on a modular platform and provides flexibility for future expansion. The SM+ filament winder can be easily extended for up to a five-spindles. This multi-spindle winding machine allows up to nine spindles to significantly increase production throughput. An overhead offset carriage beam facilitates loading/unloading, improves cleaning, and removes trip hazards from the floor. Composite part manufacturing is streamlined with an easy-to-use interface and winding software: FiberGrafiX®. The SM+ is greatly suited for any pressure vessels, including CNG and CHG tanks.
The SM+ filament winder is a standardized filament winder with all the standard product line benefits such as optimized price, reduced lead time, trusted reliability, and flexibility for future expansion. This model may be customized and automated to any customer requirement level.
