The heart of the company's approach is a high-speed automated lay-up process that eschews the use of woven mats in favor of the precise positioning of individual carbon fibers. A proprietary lay-up head design applies 50-mm wide strips of fibers while concurrently impregnating them with resin to form a "tailored blank." Dwight says this method offers several advantages over working with woven fabric.
