Carbon tubes - Glass fiber tubes
Fiber composite tubes/Carbon tubes
HA-CO Carbon is your specialist for the design and manufacture of large wound composite tubes and rings.
We realize the idea of your fiber composite tube! Depending on your interest, we wind for you from carbon, glass, aramid or basalt fiber with different filament counts.
We realize fiber composite structures with diameters between 40 mm and 4 meters and component lengths up to 40 meters. Our machinery includes long conventional winding machines and a worldwide unique, patented tension winding machine. On this machine, different component lengths can be produced core-less or on core. HA-CO Carbon accompanies you from the specifications to prototype construction to series production of long carbon tubes (CFRP tubes) and glass fiber tubes (GFRP tubes). We look forward to discussing your specific requirements with you.
- Component diameters: 40 mm up to 4 meters
- Component lengths: 0.50 meters to 42 meters
- Different cross-sections (also square/multi-edged, ...)
- Irregular shapes
- Coreless winding possible
- T-hedgehog (wrapping of flanges possible)
Wound from carbon, glass, aramid and basalt fibers (rovings) with different filament counts from any manufacturer
- Resin/hardener systems optimized for the application (standard: epoxy)
- Foams, honeycombs and other core materials for sandwich tubes
Fiber angles from 0 degrees to 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis of the pipe can be combined as required to adapt to the mechanical requirements of the individual composite pipe and/or the assembly
The connection between metal end-bottles and the carbon tube can be made in different ways:
- Positive-locking, e.g. with pins
in this case, the outer surface of an insert or flange is fitted with pins. During subsequent processing, these semi-finished products are then wrapped directly into the CFRP tube to achieve an optimum form fit.
- friction-locked, e.g. bolts
- material-locking, e.g. bonding
HA-CO Carbon uses a process patented by IMA in Dresden, which guarantees complete bonding gap coverage and thus extremely high load-bearing capacity when flanges are bonded into our carbon tubes.
Applications for fiber composite tubes
Wound carbon tubes and glass fiber tubes are used in the following industries, among others:
- Jig and fixture construction
- Special machine construction
- Optical systems
- Drive technology (CFRP torsion shafts)
- Shipbuilding, boatbuilding
- Transport and handling systems
- Mast construction
- Coil formers
- and much more!
