Industrial automation and robotics are a field starting to realize the benefits of carbon fiber designs. For many applications, the ability to reduce weight and increase structural stiffness reflects directly in faster response time and reduced motor and actuator loads. This in turn results in improved productivity and longer maintenance cycles. In the business of automation, where machines often run as fast as possible to 24/7, reduced inertial loads due to the replacement of heavy metal components with optimized carbon fiber structures can in turn reduce part fabrication time, dramatically increasing profitability. In such applications, the return on investment due to increased material costs associated with carbon fiber is often very short.
Xinbo Composites large diameter tubes, gussets, and carbon fiber sheets can easily be assembled into frameworks for a wide variety of robotic applications. For uses where loads and deflections are of major concern, Xinbo Composites can also customize the carbon fiber layup or dimensions to meet the customer specifications.
Xinbo Composites manufactures a wide variety of carbon fiber tubes useful for idler rollers, ranging from standard modulus tubes with stiffness comparable to aluminum up to ultra-high modulus tubes more rigid than steel.
The challenge with large tools, particularly aircraft production tools, is that they can be very large, and thus heavy and difficult to move. Xinbo Composites regularly helps customers reduce tool weights by 50% or more. Using FEA (Finite Element Analysis) calculations, weight reductions up to 75% are possible in some cases when compared with older aluminum and steel tools and fixtures.
The telescopic poles for reach and rescue, e.g. water rescue, key feature is that it quickly and accurately deploys a flotation or other rescue tool to a victim while significantly reducing risks to rescue personnel.
The telescopic poles for reach and rescue are manufactured by multiple layers of the highest-grade carbon fiber giving the entire pole system outstanding strength, rigidity and light weight for ease of deployment. Having a strong and lightweight rescue system gives users control and ensures accuracy and speed in vital rescues.
