The robotic arm is a highly nonlinear, multiple-input multiple-output, and strong-coupling complex system, which has been widely used in industrial assembly and other fields because of its unique operational flexibility. At present, more and more manipulators are made of carbon fiber composite materials. In this article, let’s take a look at the advantages of carbon fiber manipulators.
In terms of specific gravity, the weight of the robotic arm will affect its own movement speed and power consumption energy, and it also needs to have good controllability. The density of aluminum is 2.7g/cm3, the density of steel is 7.85g/cm3, and the carbon fiber is only 1.7g/cm3, which makes the robot arm more convenient and easy to control during operation.
In terms of strength, in addition to its own weight, the robot arm also needs to bear the weight of the work, which requires that the robot arm cannot have cracks and strains when receiving the load. Although carbon fiber composite material is a kind of fiber material, its mechanical properties are very outstanding. The tensile strength of commonly used T300 carbon fiber can reach more than 3000MPa, and the comprehensive index of specific strength and specific modulus is the highest among existing structural materials, and the higher the The grade of carbon fiber performance is more significant.
The working environment of some robotic arms is relatively harsh. Carbon fiber is a non-metallic material with low electrochemical activity. It has excellent corrosion resistance and anti-aging properties. It can adapt to a variety of complex working environments and prolong its service life. The carbon fiber composite material has a small thermal expansion coefficient, which basically does not change with the working temperature, ensuring the operation accuracy of the robotic arm.
China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. is a professional manufacturer of carbon fiber products.

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%.
