What is carbon fiber tube??

Carbon fiber tubes have numberless uses in our daily life. There are many uses of carbon fiber tubes in many applications such as aerospace, RC planes, and in many other applications. The most commonly used raw material for carbon fiber tubes is polyacrylonitrile. The graphite fiber tubes are Used in tactical ladders, trusses, beams and in many other applications. These tubes are very useful for us in our daily work.

Uses of carbon fiber tubes:

There are many uses of graphite fiber tubes but their main uses are discussed below:

  • Robotics and automation
  • Telescoping poles
  • Metrology instrumentations
  • Idler rollers
  • Drone components
  • Telescopes
  • Light weight drum
  • Industrial machinery
  • Guitar necks
  • Aerospace applications
  • Formula 1 race car components
  • Music technology
  • Unmanned vehicle
  • Radar systems

and in many other applications.

Carbon fiber tubes have following characteristics:

There are many characteristics of carbon fiber tubes, some of these are described below:

  • These tubes have high tensile strength and high stiffness. Now these tubes are used instead of aluminium fiber tubes and platinum fiber tubes.
  • The weight of these tubes is less, because of its light weight these tubes are used in most applications. The weight of carbon fiber tubes is three times less than that of aluminium.

What is meant by custom carbon fiber tubes?

There are different sizes and different shapes of carbon fiber tubes are available. Their size ranges from 4 inches to 42 inches. But you can also order these graphite fiber tubes according to the size and style you want. There are many companies that provide customized carbon fiber tubes. Customized carbon fiber tubes mean that you can order these tubes according to your requirement. Here we have described complete detail of a company that provides custom carbon fiber tubes.
