Nose Cone Winding

I am the team lead for our manufacturing division for our college rocketry club. We are looking to move to all in-house production, and one of the more dificult steps is nose cone production. Has anyone dealt with widing nose cones? How did you produce the mandrel to wind on? What was the process of setting and running the X-Winder to deal with the varying diameter as it would near the tip of the cone? Any help is appreciated, thank you!

  • Hi! did you end up having any luck on that front? We're doing the same project for a capstone and experience significant errors when we try to wind on a non constant diameter (unpredicatble behavior each wind, sometimes stopping completly, sometimes, the DH speeds up, moving significantly in the wrong direction
