Our filament winding machinery is compatible with almost all advanced off-line software programming tools for designing and modelling complex filament wound designs.
Autonational Composites has chosen to supply filament winding machines machinery provided with industrial PLC control, often supplied by manufacturers such as Siemens. In this controls, a g-code program or pattern can be freely programmed or specialized winding software can be linked.
For off-line programming, we recommend CADFIL. This software program generates the code needed by CNC equipment to produce filament wound composite products. This program is in fact a set of software packages that generate the patterns needed by CNC equipment to produce filament wound and fiber placed composite parts.
