Self-Learning Inspection System for Carbon Fiber Manufacturing
Helicopters, planes and racecars use carbon fiber parts because of their strength and lightweight construction. Demand is so great that the global carbon fiber market size is projected to reach $6.3 billion (USD) by 2025.

With this increasing demand for carbon fiber companies manufacturing it are confronted with serious challenges:

  • Increasing production of carbon fiber with specific properties, such as stiffness and strength, while maintaining quality;
  • Ensuring adaptability of carbon fibers into different manufacturing processes, starting with braiding directly from the roving spool, through resin-impregnated towpregs reinforcement fibers for winding and automated laying processes to fabrics scrims, which are draped manually or robot-based;
  • Complying with the stringent safety requirements of the aviation industry.
