This article describes processes and equipment that are used to produce composite tubular parts. The processes include sheeting, pattern cutting, tube rolling, shrink tape debulking, and finishing. The article provides a discussion on materials that are most suitable for tube rolling. These include preimpregnated materials and unidirectional tapes. The article discusses the wrapping techniques, such as convolute and spiral wrapping, of cylindrical and tapered tubes.
