A method for dispensing reinforcement fibers to make a preform or laminate includes winding a continuous length of a reinforcement fiber into coils around a form having a longitudinal axis, moving the coils axially with respect to the form to engage a cutter, cutting the coils to form discrete length reinforcement fibers, and dispensing the discrete length reinforcement fibers.
[ I claim:] [1.] A method for dispensing reinforcement fibers comprising winding a continuous length of a reinforcement fiber into coils around a form having a longitudinal axis, wherein the winding step forms each coil into an elongated shape having two generally parallel lengths, moving the coils toward a cutter and axially with respect to the form to engage the cutter while maintaining the two lengths of each coil generally parallel to each other, cutting the coils with the cutter to separate the two lengths into two discrete length reinforcement fibe...
