The Future of COPV Tank Winding: Exploring the Benefits of Automated Fiber Placement Technology

Updated: Apr 3

Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessels (COPVs) are essential components in numerous industries, including aerospace, automotive, and alternative energy. With the demand for lighter and more efficient pressure vessels growing, the adoption of Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) technology in the manufacturing of COPVs has become increasingly popular. This blog post explores the benefits of AFP technology and its innovative applications for COPV tank winding.

The Benefits of AFP for COPV Tank Winding:

Improved Material Efficiency

AFP technology enables the precise placement of composite fibers, resulting in optimized material usage and reduced waste. This not only lowers production costs but also contributes to a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process.
