A computer-integrated environment has been created around the filament winding process, including design, production and quality control. In the design phase, computer-aided design, finite element analysis and fibre path calculation techniques are integrated. Two filament winding machines have been developed for production: a two-axis filament winding machine and a robotic tape winding machine. The collision-free robot program is generated completely off-line. For quality control, a robotic ultrasonic C-scanning cell has been developed.
