Composite Vessel Design Software

With the philosophy of providing fully integrated solutions, Mikrosam is able to supply its own internally developed Composite Vessel Design Software for creating, editing and simulating filament winding programs.  Its user friendly interface is intuitive and enables the user to get up to speed quickly with the flexibility to create winding programs that can then be fully executed on our machines using our Winding Commander software.  It can also import designs from other common cylinder design or CAD programs.


Cylinder designs can include all of the standard winding patterns such as circumferential (hoop), helical, transitional as well as custom defined layers and programs.  It is also possible to create winding programs for either standard axis-symmetric geometries like tubes, vessels and cones, or complex non-axis symmetric geometries.

Final designs can be exported to any Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program so that its mechanical properties can be analyzed before exporting the design to the filament winding machine.

Composite Vessel Design Software

Winding ExpertTM is Mikrosam’s in-house developed software solution for creating, editing and simulating filament winding programs. It is user friendly software which allows the composite designer flexibility to create winding programs that will completely fulfill the product requirements. It has the possibility for circumferential (hoop), helical, transitional and other custom defined winding layers and programs. Features for winding path simulation and winding pattern simulation provide the designer with powerful tool for easy and precise creation of the composite parts using filament winding technology.

Winding Expert has a module for export of all necessary data to any Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program, which is necessary for the calculation and analysis of the mechanical properties of the filament winded products.

In Winding Expert there is possibility to create winding programs either for standard axis-symmetric geometries like tubes, vessels and cones, or to import CAD mandrel data from any popular CAD program for complex non-axis symmetric geometries.

Winding Expert  comes with Multilanguage interface.
