The Advanced Products Group at Bally Ribbon Mills has developed a unique weaving technology that opens the door to a rapidly expanding list of applications.

img_8410Our Polar woven and Spiral woven structures are responsible for recent developments in:

  • Carbon brakes
  • Flywheels
  • Aircraft engine containment systems
  • Missile structures
  • Radomes
  • Bulkheads
  • Reaction wheels for gyroscopes
  • Power storage devices in satellites

Spiral weaving involves the interlacing of two sets of yarns, hoop and radial, into one material with a constant thickness, fiber volume, and distribution of hoop-to-radial fibers. In Polar weaving, the preform has a varying thickness, fiber volume, and distribution of hoop-to-radial fibers.

Always ready to adapt our technologies to your specific requirements, Bally Ribbon Mills can even vary the properties across the width of the Polar weave.
