Title (EN) INTEGRALLY-REINFORCED BRAIDED TUBULAR STRUCTURE AND METHOD OF PRODUCING THE SAME
(FR) STRUCTURE TUBULAIRE TRESSEE A ARMATURE INTEGREE ET PROCEDE DE PRODUCTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of producing a generally tubular, reinforced structure (50) including an inner layer of braided material (16) having a predefined indentation configuration (12, 14), the method including the steps of providing a mandrel (10) having a shape and configuration of indentations (12, 14) of the inner layer (16), providing a plurality of support members (26) in the vicinity of at least some of the indentations on the mandrel (10), the support members (26) protruding a predetermined distance radially outwardly from the mandrel (10), depositing the inner layer over the mandrel and the support members, and removing the support members to a position in which the support members do not protrude the surface of the mandrel.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de produire une structure (50) renforcée sensiblement tubulaire comprenant une couche interne de matériau (16) tressé présentant des empreintes de configuration particulière. Ce procédé comprend les étapes suivantes : on prend un mandrin (10) présentant une forme et une configuration d'empreintes (12, 14) correspondant à ceux de la couche (16) interne, on pose une pluralité d'éléments (26) de support dans le voisinage d'au moins une partie des empreintes du mandrin (10), les éléments (26) de support dépassant dans une direction radiale sur une distance prédéterminée à l'extérieur du mandrin (10), on dépose la couche interne sur le mandrin et les éléments de support puis on retire les éléments de support dans une position dans laquelle ils ne dépassent plus à la surface du mandrin.
