Carbon Fiber

Lighter, stiffer and more harmonically stable tools made from high modulus, graphite carbon fiber.

Marrying the carbon fiber structures at the joints first

Bilsing has invested significant time and research into the development of lighter, stiffer and more harmonically stable tools made from high modulus, graphite Carbon Fiber(Cf). Our Cf solutions deliver increased strength and rigidity without being brittle – yet weigh less than half of traditional materials. Well-suited for crossbar beams, loading and unloading beams, destacking beams, panel loading t-booms, and tooling supports for bodyshop, pressroom, injection molding and other operations, Cf can improve production rates by up to 20%.

A unique fastening methodology was developed by Bilsing to secure the joints on our carbon fiber tooling booms, resulting in a joint as strong as a steel weld while lowering manufacturing costs. This innovation marries the Cf structures at the joints first with an adhesive and then reinforces it with steel bolts through the core. To achieve this level of joint strength, previous technologies required the Cf profiles to be laminated over the joints leading to higher manufacturing costs.
