Production of Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is a material consisting of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon, used as a strengthening material, especially in resins and ceramics. The properties of carbon fibers, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports.

What you see in the video below is a industrial braiding machine that is used to construct parts out of the super strong weave. Even if you saw how big the machine was and knew how it worked beforehnd, this process that this giant braiding machine does is so damn impressive.
