Carbone | BMC



Here is a photo of their carbon fiber weaving mechanism they like to call “The Stargate”. Basically, that orange robot arm feeds this silicon sleeve into the Stargate. All of the carbon strands are then weaved around the silicon sleeve in a pattern dependent on the tube being made. It’s fascinating to watch. The whole process from start to finish is a completely new way of frame building, however the first part of the process shown below is similar to that of another manufacturer (as seen in the first 30 seconds of this video)
