Winding Guru is our in house developed Filament Winding Software that is capable of winding axis symmetric mandrel structures ranging from simple cylinders to pressure vessels. The software comes with a fully interactive 3D viewer for winding visualisation, Mandrel geometry design wizard, and a vast array of customisations for fibre path generation. The friction modelling engine allows the user to model the possible fibre paths and chose the most optimum path required.
Winding Guru Software
The Software generates the required machine codes in G-code that can be used by many filament winding machines. With options to define machine boundaries and feed eye head profiles, the chances of collision and misalignment produced by other factors can be minimized.
The Software supports G-Code Generation from 2Axis up to 5 axis machines, with different winding modes support including modes defining feed eye locations from the mandrel, and different speed modes of operation
