Biteam AB has produced a unique boot-like profiled solid type pre-form of carbon that enables savings in weight of the composite material part and the space requirement besides offering improved performance.
The fully integrated woven profiled beam incorporates a tapered section at one side of a vertical section to provide increased base area while it also simultaneously supports and strengthens the vertical section of the beam. This construction is said to reduce the use of oversized beams.
The newly developed pre-form is intended for supporting aero engine guide vanes and other engine components. The pre-form can be woven directly in either straight or with a required radius of curvature. The pre-curved type is considered more suited for the engine application because the relatively wider base offered by the integrated tapered part of this pre-form can sit on and match with the required curved member while the vanes are fastened to it.
Together with the recent selection of Biteam’s 3D-weaving technology for a project that aims to produce a variety of profiled solid pre-forms for making modular construction elements for use in aircraft construction, Biteam is hoping to establish itself as the manufacturer of woven profiled pre-forms for primary load bearing application in the aerospace industry.
Biteam will exhibit the novel boot-like profiled pre-form, as illustrated, at the JEC Show 2006, on stand R20.
