I have worked with this winder for few weeks now. I'm still unable to get DH Linear to work properly. The problem seems to be that the executor software doesn't recognize the position signal from the motor. If i check "Help"-> "about"
Hello everyone, Great to be part of this forum for this machine, already thinking about how I can redesign the squeeze without even winding yet. I have been having extensive trouble and been trying to get my 4-axis X-winder up and working over the pa
Hey guys, we tested out a few new mods to our machine, and had some great success with our last wind.We removed the plate/roller/lucky band squeege system as it was proving inconsistant.We made a new bracket for the squeege roller, out of two 90 alum
The 4 axis machine currently looks pretty good at winding pressure vessels. But I would one day like to wind complex bicycle related parts like T joints and elbows. These seems to be able to be filament wound (videos below) and I was wondering if the
I just checked out the 3 axis winding demo and it looks like it would allow for a better part than the 2 axis, by providing better pressure distribution. How much difference would this make to the parameters (bending stiffness to weight ratio etc)?
The upgrades to the new 2 and 4 axis models look great and I am looking to do the following upgrades and was wondering whether anyone had some feedback on these proposals or had thought of doing something similar?
I have been having some problems getting a grade A finish on my parts and was wondering if anyone is achieving this? My problem is that as the tape contracts it leaves some impurities, like resin rich areas which then have to be sanded back, which ta
So, after producing 15 or so poles on my x winder I was wondering what everyone has been using for their mandrels? So far it looks like cardboard is popular, but I imagine this would be too inconsistent for my parts. I have read that mandrels should
How have you been going with winding angle selection? I understand the 90’ is optimal for burst strength (which many of you will use for rocketry), but I am generally trying to optimise bending stiffness. I started out using all 45’ p
