In old filament winding machinery it is obvious to replace the controls if possible. Also carriage components can be renewed and executed more accurately.

Due to higher process requirements, the creel system can be also renewed. A simple bookshelf creel can replaced with a mechanically tensioned pallet creel. But also a pallet creel can be replaced by am electronically tension controlled servo creel.
