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.


Never waste a good prototype

We worked hard to develop a proof-of-concept prototype for a new 3D triaxial braider so we didn’t want to just scrap it!

Here’s the results. The Gallagher Duck Rally that premiered at CAMX 2022 in Anaheim. Now, we’re wondering how Peeps would do on the track for Easter. Hmmm…
