Manufacturing

Where imagination meets reality

blank

To produce high-quality fiber composite products, we at Carbonin use various process and manufacturing technologies to achieve the relevant component requirements and planned production quantities.

Our highly experienced and knowledgeable development team will advise you regarding the right design, materials, and technology needed to achieve your goals in the best way. They continuously monitor trends in composites manufacture and research, test and develop new technologies and processes to meet your needs in faster and more efficient ways.

In our complete in-house manufacturing premises, we are very flexible in our production processes and can support you with a prototype production, test series or manufacture of thousands of products.

What we can do for you

Welcome, have a look around our manufacturing premises.

3D three-dimensional computer-aided design (CAD) of the product

We use scanned 3D Computer Technology to enable a 100% accurate part to be produced.

Autoclave process

Autoclave processing, in which materials are laminated layer by layer in a tool and then vacuumed in the autoclave with the desired pressure and temperature parameters, is the most common method used for curing thermoset prepregs.

Autoclave manufacturing requires a lot of manual work, enables flexibility in design, and is cost-effective.

With Carbonin, products in sizes up to 2,000 mm in length and up to a 900 mm radius can be made using the autoclave process.

Vacuum curing technology

Vacuum curing technology is the process employed to create mechanical pressure on a carbon fiber composite during its cure cycle. During the process, trapped air between layers is removed, shifting of fiber orientation is prevented, the resin is equally distributed throughout the fabric, and the fiber-to-resin ratio in the composite part is optimized.

This process offers a more consistent, thinner, lighter, and stronger product in comparison to wet lay-up. Additionally, because the vacuum bag creates pressure on its own, the need for autoclave curing is often eliminated, which allows us to be faster and more cost-efficient.

With Carbonin, products in sizes up to 2,000 x 1,400 x 1,200 mm can be made with a vacuum bagging process. For research and prototypes, we often use a smaller oven (Size: 1070 x 430 x 500) which allows us to be more flexible, faster, and more energy-efficient in the process.

Press molding

Press molding is a closed-mold fiber composite manufacturing process that is efficient and versatile in applications. It is an appropriate fabrication system for producing uniform, larger quantities of complex, high-strength composite structures fast.

It uses matched metal molds with the application of external pressure. The pressure remains on the mold throughout the cure cycle, which usually occurs in an oven. Hot pressing enables low to mid-volume production of parts that require quick manufacture.

Mold production

We produce molds from wax, foam, wood, plastic, epoxy block, polyurethane block, aluminium, or metal via CNC machining or handcrafting, and some we 3D print. The selection of mold material depends on the size of the product, its shape, the labor required, the lead time needed for mold fabrication, and the cost-effectiveness of the chosen material.

Automated cutting

Our automated computer-run cutting machine for carbon fiber prepreg fabric enables us to be faster, more accurate, and reliable in the cutting phase. It also reduces labor costs and material waste.

Painting & polishing

Avio fiber products need painting and surface treatment to prevent deformation and discoloration. Finally, carbon and avio fiber products are polished to achieve that distinctive shiny finish – carbon parts with no extra varnishing required!

THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERTISE OF THE CARBONIN TEAM CAN BE APPLIED TO MANY OTHER INDUSTRIES THAT WOULD BENEFIT FROM HIGH-QUALITY, STRONG, AND LIGHT FIBER COMPOSITE SOLUTIONS.

We love new challenges!
