Shikibo Ltd has developed a production technology for carbon-fiber composite materials that can be used to make large, complex shapes for rocket tail fins, frames and other main components.

Shikibo has developed a device that can accurately line up about 600 carbon fibers in one movement and layer them, among other tasks. This enables users to simultaneously and three-dimensionally sew large amounts of carbon fibers.

Technically, the device can simultaneously control several thousand carbon fibers and create structures up to 20-30 meters long. The company aims to apply the technology for mass production in four or five years with the cooperation of plane manufacturers and other firms.
