At the beginning of its application, carbon fiber is usually widely used in high-end fields such as military and military. With the in-depth research on carbon fiber materials, the successful production of all carbon fiber subway cars some time ago has made carbon fiber play a more important role in the field of rail transportation. In this article, let’s take a look at the advantages of carbon fiber used in rail transportation.
Reducing energy consumption and reducing self-weight are inseparable. Rail vehicles need to consume huge amounts of energy during running. These energy are mainly used to overcome the resistance of trains in high-speed operation. As an excellent weight-saving material, carbon fiber has a density of only 1.7g/cm3, which can reduce the weight by 30% compared with aluminum alloy and 45%-50% compared with steel materials. It can effectively reduce energy consumption and improve cruising range.
The mechanical properties of carbon fiber composite materials are also very prominent. In the production process of rail vehicles, its service life needs to be considered, and there will be no fatigue failure during the working process. Carbon fiber composite materials have excellent anti-aging ability and can ensure their own service life. . And carbon fiber composite materials also have a certain tensile force and minimal deformation.
China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. was established in 2005 and has a production workshop of more than 5,000 square meters. It is a professional manufacturer of carbon fiber products, which can meet the application of carbon fiber products in rail transit, automobile industry, medical equipment, and other fields. Insist on bringing high-quality carbon fiber products to customers.
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%.
