Ultrasonic sewing is an alternative method to the conventional sewing methods. Ultrasonic sewing is
only applied to thermoplastics and their blends and is not required any sewing yarn. Nowadays,
chain and lock stitches are used for the production of the multiaxial structures. In this study,
multiaxial fabrics were produced by using ultrasonic sewing for the first time. Polyester was used for
the multiaxial fabric production. Polyester multiaxial fabrics were sewn by using ultrasonic, chain and
lock stitches then produced multiaxial structures were used as reinforcement for the production of
the composites. Mechanical properties of the produced composite structures were investigated.
