Toyota has recently released a video that showcases a stunning new circular loom technology that is capable of weaving carbon fibers together into 3D structures. The loom was developed as a means of producing these lighter, stronger materials in a more precise, yet cost-effective manner. The parts generated from the machine will be injected with plastic resin to form elements of the chassis for the Lexus LFA. As this technology continues to evolve, the resulting materials and parts will find their way into more aspects of the vehicle’s design.
