What is Effective Filament Winding® ?


The First Ever Integrated System to ensure profit-making in the Filament Winding industry

WHY implement the Effective Filament Winding method?


In GRP technology, a unique recipe, a unique raw material or mix of raw materials that would ensure the optimal cost, an optimal process or a perfect configuration of the Continuous Filament Winding process, which would work in any worldwide GRP production plant, does not exist.

In order for your GRP pipes to perform in the best possible way, they must be designed and produced with the infrastructure design and the installation conditions being taken into consideration, because different temperatures, different raw materials and different working conditions can’t be faced with the same GRP production plant layout, the same equipment or the same recipes.

The implementation of the EFW allows you to have a perfect understanding of the project requirements and it allows you to fine-tune your design and perform the right actions in the correct sequence.


HOW is it different?


Unfortunately, the Continuous Filament Winding providers that you normally find on the market try to sell you their products, promising high production speeds, complete know-how and fantastic recipes. They are ready to give you a project proposal immediately, without knowing all the conditions on the GRP production site.

If you eventually do not achieve the expected results in your GRP production, the reasons for the potential downfalls will be due to the raw materials or due to your personnel; but if you approach the raw material suppliers for assistance, they will tend to allocate the blame to the failure of the GRP plant equipment. At the end of the day, you will still have problems and no solutions.

Compared to that, the implementation of the EFW approach and the data you collect through it, allow you to know exactly where the problems lie and, in this way, help you decide on your next move to fix them.


HOW it works?


Our Effective Filament Winding method works through 3 important phases:

Phase 1: Apply the Effective Filament Winding in your manufacturing Plant.
Phase 2: Improve the working phases that have been identified as critical for the profit optimization.
Phase 3: Fine tune your design and raw materials to increase your profit even more.

Combined with our high-performance Continuous Filament Winding Plants, which are prepared to help our customers implement the EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING® method in the easiest possible way, and also equipped with special and precise sensors (for example for resin viscosity, resin and sand temperature, roving tension, etc.) you will be able to easily implement the EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING optimization phases.


Which steps does EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING® lead you through?


Our Effective Filament Winding method helps you perform the next steps:

  • implement the measurement of the correct data within your industrial process;
  • clearly define the results you need to achieve;
  • perform reverse engineering;
  • correct the activities that do not allow you to achieve the goal;
  • and finally, re-start the process again.


Some of the additional CONCEPTS that the EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING® encompasses:


  • be effective and only then you can be efficient;
  • fight against the statement: “We’ve always done it this way”;
  • develop a detailed understanding of your production process;
  • clearly define the results you need to achieve;
  • correct all the activities that don’t allow you to achieve these results;
  • re-start the process optimization loop once more.

EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING® method helps you become effective and get immediate positive results through small changes, while considering all stages of your production.
