5-Axis Machining & Carbon Fiber Parts
5-Axis Carbon Fiber Composites
The last decade has witnessed an explosion in the use of Carbon Fiber composites in product design. Due to its high strength to weight ratio it has found its way into industries such as aerospace, automotive, and drone manufacturing. The ability to produce complex shapes from a composite layup has enabled carbon fiber parts to replace metal parts that would have required extensive amounts of machining. Because often times carbon fiber parts are complex in shape, trimming and drilling them requires sophisticated multi axis machining capabilities.
Digital Product Definition and Model Based Definition Approved
Complex composite parts requiring machining are almost always defined digitally. Having an approved DPD (Digital Product Definition)/MBD (Model Based Definition) is essential to properly controlling these models to ensure the right part is produced the first time. Upland Fabrication’s DPD/MBD system has been approved by multiple Aerospace primes such as Boeing and UTC Aerospace.
