Title : The 3 axis portable filament winding machine embedded with wireless technology


Filament winding process is a traditional composite fabrication technique, which is mainly produced for open or close end structures such as vessels, pipes, tanks and domes. Filament winding technique has three winding patterns: hoop, helical and polar winding. Compared to other fabrication processes, filament winding process offers higher fibre volume fraction, higher degree of automation and low-cost characteristics. It is used in many application fields such as infrastructure, military, aerospace and mass transportation. Nowadays, filament winding machine has developed to advance its application with different axes. For axes perspective, the 6-axis winding machine has the highest axes level, which offers 3 linear and 3 rotation motions. However, several available filament winding machines provide complicated and copyright control system, which is typically used wire method. In order to design a portable winding machine with minimum-axis demand, the 3-axis filament winding machine has developed with wireless method using Bluetooth and WiFi modulus. The 3-axis winding machine has been tested to evaluate the winding performance, which refers to winding circular test and winding angle measurement test. Further, the 3-axis filament winding machine have produced several filament wound composite products such as tubes and vessels. For winding angle scope, it can offer 20º to 90º degree with ±1º winding angle standard deviation. The control system of this machine is mainly selected Arduino Uno and CNC v1 shield module, which has an inexpensive and open-source control system features. In conclusion, wireless technology is successfully applied to this laboratory scale 3-axis portable winding machine control system, which makes a significant contribution to control system methods.
