Technical braids in aerospace engineering

Space stations, spacecrafts and conventional aerocrafts require technical braids.

In the field of aerospace engineering, lightweight and robust technology is key. Technical braids are helpful in a range of applications, as they weigh little and stabilise flexible materials effectively.

How exactly are technical braids used in aerospace engineering?

The material used in satellites is subject to extreme temperature variation in space – it needs to ensure maximal functionality without the option of maintenance. Technical braids made from special fibres offer thermal protection, flame retardation and insulation functions; they flexibly bundle cables and seal plugs in extremely hot environments without generating dust. In aviation, the requirements are less extreme than in aerospace engineering, but the applications are nevertheless highly demanding. Please feel free to get in touch and tell us about your specific requirements – our development team will be happy to create the right product for you.

The Wedo wick-configurator

To ensure the best possible burning results, the wick must be well adapted to the candle system in question. Our wick-configurator allows you to easily define key candle parameters – it then automatically lists a number of suitable wicks for testing.

Let us forget our age of high technology for a second and have a purely scientific look at the mechanics of a candle flame. When we light the wick of a candle, the heat of the flame melts the wax.

Wick positions

Ideal wick position: The wick protrudes from the candle in a straight line and bends towards the flame boundary, entering the “glow zone”, where it burns fully at the highest temperature under the influence of oxygen.

Temperature distribution

The flame of a candle is separated into different glowing and temperature areas, which are easily visible to the naked eye: (1) Candle (2) Wick (3) Blue zone: Usually outside of the luminous zone Hottest zone due to oxygen contact
