Forming method - Sheet winding (SW) method

Key features

  • Suitable for forming tubular products.
  • Better than the FW method when forming small products, achieving high shape accuracy and high productivity.
  • Use of prepreg (intermediate material) results in high carbon fiber content (Vf) and allows for forming of high-performance products.

Application examples

Golf club shaft, fishing rod, roll, etc.
