The winding pins developed by the Leichtbau-Zentrum Sachsen make use of state-of-the-art methods of engineering and additive manufacturing to increase the efficiency of traditional filament winding processes. Automated geometry creation and additive manufacturing enable tailored design, rapid availability and cost efficiency.

The industrial use of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRPs) is constantly on the rise, due to the necessity of energy and resource efficiency while improving component properties. Furthermore, the scope of applications is no longer exclusively restricted to the aerospace and high-performance sports equipment industries. FRPs are becoming increasingly attractive in the automotive sector as well as in mechanical and plant engineering - particularly as a result of more efficient manufacturing processes. Not only savings in weight but also the high achievable stiffness achievable and the excellent corrosion resistance have expanded the range of applications of these...
