Carbon fiber is a high-performance structural material. In practical application, carbon fiber is usually combined with some matrix resins to form carbon fiber composite materials. Carbon fiber products have been used in medical equipment, rail transit, automobile industry and other fields. Let’s take a look at the commonly used molding processes for carbon fiber products.
Compression molding: First, place the carbon fiber prepreg between the upper and lower molds, and place the mold on the hydroforming table after mold closing. After a certain period of high temperature and high pressure to cure the resin, carbon fiber products can be obtained. In the production process, attention should be paid to the control of pressure and temperature. The temperature determines the heat transfer of the mold to the material, and has a great influence on the melting, flow and solidification process of the material. The pressure can close the mold tightly and densify the material, which ensures the flow of the melt and the pressure generated by the volatilization of the material in the balance cavity. The surface of the product obtained by this process is smooth and flat, and the strength retention rate is high.
Autoclave forming: This process requires the help of certain auxiliary materials. First, the carbon fiber prepreg is attached to the surface of the mold, and the whole is put into a vacuum bag, evacuated to a vacuum state, and then placed in an autoclave, and vacuumed by a vacuum pump. , after a period of vacuum heating to solidify the resin to obtain a carbon fiber product blank.
China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. masters advanced and efficient composite molding, bag pressing, inflation, winding and other molding processes, and provides complete facilities for high-performance carbon fiber composite products. The products produced by our company are popular in China. , and related carbon fiber products have been exported to Europe and the United States for a long time.
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%.
