The Molding Process Of Carbon Fiber Motorcycle


Carbon fiber is a new type of composite material with low density, high specific strength, high specific modulus, small thermal expansion coefficient, high temperature resistance, shock resistance and strong designability. Nowadays, some well-known motorcycle manufacturers in Europe, the United States and Japan have invested huge human, material and financial resources in the research of new forms and prototype motorcycles, and carbon fiber has been widely used. So what is the molding process of carbon fiber motorcycles?

 

1. Pasting molding process:
The prepreg is pasted on the mold by hand and then cured to form. The biggest advantage of this method is that the process equipment is simple, the more complex operations can be completed manually, and complex parts can be manufactured, but the labor consumption is large, the size of the product is difficult to control, and the efficiency is low.
 
2. Filament winding molding process:
After pre-impregnating the carbon fiber with resin, it is wound on the core mold according to a certain rule and cured. It is the earliest continuous molding process developed, with a high degree of mechanization and a short production cycle, and can arrange fibers according to a specific law according to the direction of the force of the product.
 
3. Pultrusion process:
After carbon fiber is impregnated with resin, it is placed in a heating mold and cured, which can press products with complex shapes at one time, but the molding equipment is also more complicated.
 
4. Resin transfer molding process:
Now a very popular process, the carbon fiber preform is put into a closed mold and cured by hot pressing. The process is simple, the environment is clean, and automation is easy to achieve.
The molding process of carbon fiber motorcycle is mainly the above, and its selection depends on the shape, physical performance requirements and use of the product. China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. has strong technical force and masters a variety of molding processes. It has cooperated with well-known foreign companies to process carbon fiber motorcycle accessories such as fenders and exhaust pipe tail throats, and has been well received by 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%.
