Cutting the Fiber -- Carbon Fiber, that is

Jul 11, 2013

Automating your carbon fiber cutting process will help bring unmatched accuracy, precision, and ease of use. Carbon fiber robotic cutting, also known as waterjet cutting, is attractive because of the expensive nature of the material. Manufacturers need a dependable source that will quickly and accurately cut the size they need.


Car­bon fiber is an extreme­ly strong poly­mer made up of car­bon fibers. The mate­r­i­al is light­weight and has sev­er­al uses in an array of industries.

While car­bon fiber can be a lit­tle on the expen­sive side, the mate­r­i­al is used heav­i­ly in the auto­mo­tive and aero­space indus­tries. Car­bon fiber com­pos­ite is found in sev­er­al trans­porta­tion vehi­cles like sail­boats, bicy­cles and motorcycles.

Oth­er indus­tries have start­ed to use car­bon fiber because of its strength. It is used in com­mon items like tent poles, golf clubs and helmets.

Car­bon fiber can be cut either with a reg­u­lar cut­ting appli­ca­tion that uses a knife or saw end-of-arm-tool­ing. It can also be cut with an abra­sive water­jet process that uses a steam of high-pres­sured water mixed with abrasives.

Car­bon fiber robot­ic cut­ting or water­jet cut­ting is attrac­tive to man­u­fac­tur­ers when cut­ting pieces of car­bon fiber because of the expen­sive nature of the mate­r­i­al. Robot­ic cut­ting appli­ca­tions have accu­ra­cy and pre­ci­sion that is unmatched by man­u­al applications.
