Vacuum Infusion Technique: Achieving High-Quality Carbon Fiber Products
At kopp-voracek, we use the vacuum infusion technique to create high-quality carbon fiber plates and molds from 3D printed patterns. This process involves laying the dry carbon fiber fabric into a mold, sealing it in a plastic bag, and then removing the air with a vacuum pump. The resin is then infused into the fabric under vacuum, resulting in a strong, lightweight, and high-quality product.
One of the key advantages of the vacuum infusion technique is that it ensures that there are no air bubbles in the finished product, which can compromise its strength and integrity. This technique also allows for a higher fiber-to-resin ratio, resulting in a stronger and lighter product. It is also an environmentally friendly process, as it generates minimal waste and uses less resin compared to traditional hand layup techniques.
To achieve the best results with the vacuum infusion technique, it is important to carefully select the appropriate resin and fiber combination for the specific application. The right combination of materials can ensure the desired strength, durability, and finish for the end product.
At kopp-voracek, we have years of experience in using the vacuum infusion technique to produce high-quality carbon fiber products. Our team of experts can help you select the right materials and optimize the process for your specific needs. Contact us today to learn more about our vacuum infusion services.
