composite materials (Fibre Reinforced Polymers - FRP) refer to materials that are not available in nature and resulting from the combination of at least two chemically different materials that retain their identity and properties in the final compounds without fully blending into each other.
To make composite structures, carbon fibres are first interwoven and arranged together to create actual carbon fabric “cloths” and then, once placed in pose, they are immersed or assembled to the resin matrix.
Of the main features of the carbon fibre, it is worth mentioning its high mechanical strength, low density, thermal insulation, resistance to temperature changes and the effect of chemical agents, along with good fireproof properties.
Compared to glass fibres, carbon fibres (which are more recent) have substantial benefits: very high elastic modulus, low density and a very low thermal expansion coefficient.
They are therefore ousting glass fibres in all fields where high structural properties are the objective of the project, as well as low weight, high rigidity or a remarkable dimensional stability with temperature changes.
The manufacturing costs of carbon fibres are noticeably higher than glass fibres, but they are very popular because of their high mechanical features.
With our machines we offer a wide range of dimensional and technological solutions to meet, as best as possible, the milling and trimming needs of all components made with composite materials, with specific solutions that come with protection systems against dust generated by milling.
With our consultancy service, you will always know which is the best-suited solution for your project.
