Manufacturing technology of carbon fiber parts

Productive process

how we work with carbon fiber

We start the production cycle of carbon fiber car components with the 3D scanning of the original parts, followed by the creation of mathematical models in Catia V, Iges, Step, and Dxf formats, which are used for the 5-axis milling of models in Ureol and metallic inserts in machining centers. Subsequently, we carry out rapid prototyping using 3D printers and we use the style models for the lamination of production molds in carbon fiber or aluminum.

We then proceed to the Clean Room for the lamination of the prepreg carbon fiber skins with an epoxy matrix, previously cut with a Cutter Plotter, in rooms with controlled temperature and humidity. This operation is performed by specialized operators who handle the deposition of individual layers following a ply book that specifies the type of materials, the orientation of the fibers, and their arrangement.

Once the vacuuming of the components in their respective molds is completed, we proceed with autoclave molding at high pressure (4-8 bar) and temperature (125°C), following preset and recorded polymerization cycles. These cycles are designed to ensure perfect coupling of the individual layers, the absence of interlaminar voids, and the thermal and dimensional stability of the final components at the required operating temperatures (-40°C / +100°C), resulting in their deformation resistance over time.

We conclude the cycle with the trimming of the components, which can be carried out manually or via CNC, the structural bonding of accessory and metallic components in the positioning jigs, protective painting with anti-UV transparent acrylic in a booth, following preset thermal cycles, and finally, dimensional testing and aesthetic inspection.

We carry out the entire process in compliance with ISO 9001 Quality Control, ensuring the traceability and conformity of the produced components.
