As a high-performance structural material, carbon fiber is used in medical equipment, rail transit, automobile industry and other fields. The commonly used molding process for carbon fiber products is compression molding. In this article, the editor of Be-cu prototype will introduce to you. Advantages of carbon fiber product molding.
The molding process uses the characteristics of each stage of the resin curing reaction to realize the molding of the product, that is, the material flows and fills the mold cavity, and the resin is cured. During the flow of the molding material filling the mold cavity, not only the resin flows, but also the reinforcing material flows, so the molding pressure of the molding process is higher than that of other processes, and it belongs to high-pressure molding. Therefore, it requires not only a hydraulic press that can control the pressure, but also a metal mold with high strength, high precision and high temperature resistance.
The main advantages of compression molding: the loss of raw materials is small, and it will not cause too much loss . The internal stress of the product is very low, and the warpage deformation is also small, and the mechanical properties are relatively stable. The wear of the mold cavity is small, the cost of the molding equipment is low, the mold structure is relatively simple, and the manufacturing cost is usually lower than that of the injection mold or the transfer molding mold. Larger flat products can be molded, and the size of the products that can be molded by molding is only determined by the clamping force of the existing molding machine and the size of the template. The shrinkage of the product is small and the repeatability is good. A mold with a larger number of cavities can be placed on a given template, with high productivity. The product has high dimensional accuracy and good repeatability. The surface is smooth and no secondary modification is required. It can form products with complex structure at one time. Mass production, the price is relatively low.
China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. is a professional manufacturer of carbon fiber products. The company has large-scale hot presses, autoclaves, hydraulic forming tables, CNC high-speed milling machines and other large-scale equipment. Japan and other well-known brands of raw materials production, quality assurance.
ISO 9001 certified. BE-CU Prototype Offering CNC machining carbon fiber and other manufacturing services for carbon fiber marterial. Various capabilities include notching, labeling, drilling carbon fiber, grinding, laser cutting carbon fiber, finishing, plating, marking, CNC milling carbon fiber and turning carbon fiber.We stock high quality 3k carbon fiber sheet in a variety of thickness, types and finish. Its a great material used in applications where light weight and strength are needed such as drones. Unlike other workshops, we have no min order and are often filling orders with a single part. We also don’t make you pay for the full sheet and you only get charged for what is used. With a large selection of material, you should find everything you need to make your project come to life. We are also able to handle larger production runs and provide a competitive pricing. If we don’t have the material or finish you require, we are more the willing to look at bringing it in for you.
What Is Carbon Fiber?Carbon fiber is made of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) (or pitch, viscose) and other organic fibers by carbonization (removal of most elements except carbon) by pyrolysis method under inert gas at high temperature above 1,000 °C. Inorganic polymer fibers with a carbon content of more than 90%.
