- Carbon fiber
- Carbon fibers or carbon fibres (alternatively CF, graphite fiber or graphite fibre) are fibers about 5 to 10 micrometers (0.00020–0.00039 in) in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms. Carbon fibers have several advantages including high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion.
Svecom P.E. has created a new business unit, SVECOM CARBON FIBER that combines the experience of over 50 years of production of expandable shafts with the advantages of carbon fiber: this results in a solution that maximizes mechanical performance and lightness.
The process includes a new production plant in which shafts of different sizes can be processed according to customer requirements.
The new production plant allows the construction of tubes of different sizes and mechanical characteristics for the construction of shafts and rollers according to customer requirements.
The tubes can be made using two technologies: Filament Winding and Roll-Wrapping.
