Work In Progress: 3D Triaxial Braider

Gallagher has been selected to build an innovative 3D triaxial braiding machine to reduce the risk of delamination of composite components.

When completed, the braider’s five rows of migrating carriers will braid a seamless sock with five layers of interlaced fibers, adding significant strength to the finished form.

In this video see our work-in-progress, from design to prototyping and on to the full-scale build.
