Filament Winding Machines
With over 40 years in the field, Engineering Technology Corporation is, without question, the most experienced manufacturer of filament winding machinery. ETC has built more multi-spindle filament winding machines than any other manufacturer and single-handedly changed the face of filament winding by producing the world’s first computer-controlled filament winding machine.
With over 10 years of pultrusion experience, ZOLTEK and Engineering Technology Corporation are adept at innovating solutions for any pultrusion challenge. Thanks to our wide range of pultrusion and peripheral equipment, we provide that ability to select a completely tailored process system that optimizes goals within a set budget.
Our pultrusion machines are designed to accommodate all possible composites processing parameters and incorporate the most reliable control and drive components available. Designed for flexibility, the machines are easy to operate and maintain. Product profiles can be changed on the line with minimum downtime. Simply, ZOLTEK and ETC provide the most reliable, efficient and cost-effective process systems available.
Engineering Technology Corporation has developed a platform for fiber placement, plug fabrication, water jet cutting, trimming, inspection and part handling, which gives customers a cost-effective solution for their need with fiber placement and industrial routing. Being the industry leader in composite machine manufacturing, ETC has the experience and knowledge needed to make good companies even better.
Engineering Technology Corporation’s heavy-duty gantry machines offer many benefits; the workcell is capable of complex composite structure fabrication.
Any of the feed, cut and material guidance components can be removed and serviced in minutes keeping equipment downtime at a minimum. The heavy-duty steel frame adds stiffness and increases the accuracy of the machine. In addition to these advantages, a fully integrated vacuum and duct system can be installed.
With over 40 years’ experience, Engineering Technology Corporation is the world’s leader in filament winding machinery and software. This expertise has allowed the creation of FiberGrafiX™, a superior software application for filament winding pattern generation and optimization. It was introduced more than twenty years ago as the worlds first pattern generation program. Since then FiberGrafiX™ has continued to lead the industry and is now used on more machines around the world than any other similar application. And now, patterns generated by FiberGrafiX™ can be output to any filament winding machine’s computer control system.
