Evolution of Preform Manufacturing
“TCWM” Composite Fiber Sewing Machine

TCWM is a composite fiber sewing machine specifically designed for sewing reinforced fibers. Carbon fiber and other reinforced fibers can be formed into shapes close to that of the finished product, enabling mass production of high-precision preforms with minimal waste. Practical applications continue to expand, with examples including aircraft window frames, stools, brake boosters, and camping goods.

Combines high precision sewing and productivity

Any reinforcing fiber material, of whatever sort—glass fiber, natural fibers, aramid fibers, carbon fiber roving, etc.—is processed at maximum speed. And use of the TFP process, which combines lightness, high strength, cost performance, and environmental performance, permits design orientations that make the most of the material’s capabilities.

The TFP process, a Modification of the CFRP Concept

The TFP (Tailored Fiber Placement) process is a process in which reinforcing fibers are sewn onto a base material to form a preform that meets the required properties. Reinforcing fibers such as carbon fibers that exhibit strong anisotropy, which provides strength only in the direction of the fiber’s orientation, can be arranged continuously and freely, making it possible to design a composite material structure that provides the necessary strength in the required direction.
