The drive shaft is an important part of the machine tool and is used to transmit the power source to the actuator. The drive shaft in small and medium-sized machinery can be made of ordinary steel, but large-scale machinery has higher requirements on materials. The bending resistance, strength, and rotation accuracy must meet certain requirements. Although the strength of metal is high, it has high density. The drive shaft will become very difficult to process, install and debug. If carbon fiber material is used instead, it will achieve very good results.
Carbon fiber material has excellent properties such as light weight, high strength, strong designability, shock absorption and drop resistance, high temperature resistance, friction resistance, etc. Compared with traditional metal materials, it has low noise, low vibration amplitude, light weight, and no life Rust, not afraid of corrosion, easy maintenance, energy saving.
The drive shaft keeps rotating during work and rubs against other components, so the friction resistance must be good to be used for a long time. The friction resistance of carbon fiber is as good as that of metal, and it can be used instead. In terms of weight, the current machinery is developing towards light weight. The density of carbon fiber is only 1.8g/cm^3, which is a quarter of that of steel. It is very lightweight, saves energy during operation, and is easy to replace. The contact between metal and moisture in the air is easy to oxidize and rust, and regular maintenance is required. Carbon fiber does not have this concern.
The benefits of carbon fiber drive shafts are very many, and they have begun to be used in machinery instead of metal. If you need carbon fiber product machining parts, welcome to Be-cu prototype consultation. The prototype of Be-cu has successfully cooperated with high-end enterprises such as China South Locomotive Group, China North Industries Group Corporation, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Tesla Motors and so on. He has certain experience in automotive industry-grade rail transit structural parts.
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.
