Carbon fiber materials have very high performance and performance advantages, which are concentrated in light weight, such as low overall density, lighter weight and higher strength, which also makes carbon fiber products very well used. When purchasing carbon fiber products , found that the price of carbon fiber products is generally relatively high, what is the reason that the price of carbon fiber products will be much higher? This article follows the editor of the Be-cu prototype to take a look.
The reason why the price of carbon fiber products is expensive is that the value of carbon fiber products is relatively high. On the whole, there are three aspects.
1. Raw material prices
The price of carbon fiber composite materials will be more expensive. If you want high-performance carbon fiber, you will choose foreign carbon fiber raw materials, and foreign carbon fiber machining will be much more expensive, which leads to the price of carbon fiber composite materials will definitely be high. out a lot. The extraction steps of carbon fiber precursors are also more complicated, so the cost of carbon fiber precursors is relatively high. In addition, carbon fiber precursors are made into carbon fiber products, and resin needs to be welcomed, and the resin matrix also requires a certain cost. If the resin is high temperature, the cost will be higher.
That is different from metal materials, such as how much is a ton, and how much is a kilogram of carbon fiber composite materials, so the price of raw materials for carbon fiber products is relatively expensive, which is an important reason for the high price of carbon fiber products.
2. High labor cost
The production and machining of carbon fiber products requires a lot of manpower, and the entire production and machining of carbon fiber products requires a lot of labor costs, such as laying materials, upper molds, etc., such as closed machining of molding, etc. In addition, the needs of carbon fiber products of different production processes The equipment is also different. The entire equipment investment and technical learning have strong requirements for the production of carbon fiber products, which all cause the price of carbon fiber products to be more expensive after production.
3. High cost of proofing
In the production of carbon fiber products, they will be applied to molds. Many people’s products are just beginning to be developed, so they are all in the early stage of proofing. In this case, only a few carbon fiber products will be produced, and then spread to the The cost of the mold will also feel that the price of carbon fiber products is relatively expensive.
Under these problems, the price of carbon fiber products is relatively expensive. We see an important reason for the higher cost of carbon fiber products. In this case, the price of carbon fiber products will undoubtedly be higher, but from a long-term and performance point of view , The service life of carbon fiber products is longer, the overall cost will be lower, and the performance advantages of carbon fiber products are also higher, which makes the market prospect of carbon fiber products very good, after all, a good horse is equipped with a good saddle, and every penny is worth every penny. Goods, so customers who need carbon fiber products are welcome to come to consult the editor of the Be-cu prototype. China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. has ten years of rich experience in the carbon fiber field. It is engaged in the production and machining of carbon fiber products. It has complete molding equipment and perfect machining machines, and can complete various types of carbon fiber products. Production, customized production according to drawings.
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%.
