Triaxial Braiding System
In 1975, CEI purchased our first industrial braider and began to use its tri-axial braiding capability to fabricate spars, shells and other components. For spars, thickness can be dialed in to achieve mast design specs at every dimension. For shells, this meant box section carbon tubing for the keels and gunwales, a unique feature of Van Dusen boats.
