Title: METHODS FOR FABRICATING PREFORMS FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE ULTRA-LONG FIBER REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC TUBING
Abstract:
A method for fabricating a preform for hollow parts includes cutting a fiber prepreg material into pieces (1 2) each having an appropriate length; spacing each of the cut pieces (12); orienting each of the cut pieces (12) at an appropriate fiber angle; and securing each of the cut pieces (12) to the other cut pieces (12). A method for fabricating a hollow part includes fabricating a preform for hollow parts and molding the hollow part using the preform.
