Tape Wrappers

Robust, Cost-Effective Machines for Creating Aerospace Structures

Engineering Technology Corporation has been producing tape wrapping machines for over 50 years. Tape wrapping machines are specialized composite manufacturing equipment specially designed to create carbon / phenolic structures, which excel in applications where high heat and pressures are encountered. These structures have a been a staple of the aerospace, defense, and space exploration industries since the 1960’s.

As interest in carbon / phenolic structures has increased, Engineering Technology Corporation has worked hard to provide the next generation of tape wrapper machines. Engineering Technology Corporation’s is pleased to offer new standard tape wrapping machines that offer more precise tape placement, better control over process variables, and require less operator interaction than previous machines. Two standard sizes of tape wrapping machine are available for maximum structure diameters of 30 or 60 inches, with custom sizes available for larger structures.
