SVECOM P.E. Carbon fiber

Carbon fiber shafts production

CARBON FIBER SVECOM P.E. has created a new business unit, SVECOM CARBON FIBER which uses the experience gained over 50 years in shaft production combined with the new technology of carbon fiber. This results in a solution that maximizes the advantages of reduced shaft body weights and high mechanical performancs.

The process involves a new production plant in which shafts of various dimensions can be manufactured to meet customers demand. To produce carbon fiber, the carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber as the crystal alignment gives the fiber high strengthto-volume ratio (making it strong for its size). Several thousand carbon fiber's are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric. The properties of carbon fiber's, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion, make them very usefull in shafts sector.


CARBON FIBER PNEUMATIC LUG SHAFT This Carbon Fiber Pneumatic Lug Shaft is recommended for unwind and rewind applications when using cores. It will increase productivity when compared to existing steel shafts it has the advantage of being lighter in weight, can be carried by a single operator without assistance, and run at higher critical speed. The shaft body is made of high strength carbon fiber, fabricated through filament winding technology. The shaft has two important features: the lug seats are made of new technology high-strength steel designed to avoid any possibility of surface cracking, and to distribute the load uniformly over the whole carbon section.

The carbon fibre body-ends have a specially designed steel-carbon interface to safely transmit the torque through the steel journal ends. We provide expanding carbon fiber shafts to suit cores of a maximum 400 mm diameter and up to 6000 mm in lenght.



Idler carbon fiber rollers with a wide range of surface treatments. We can provide non-expanding rollers utilising carbon fiber technology to produce rollers up to: Maximum diameter of 400 mm. Maximum length of 6000 mm. Dimensions and specifications can be designed to meet customers exact requirements.



We have developed, with the help of our American affiliate Goldenrod Corporation an extremely rigid, lightweight carbon fiber shaft in the easy-to-use Multiple Bladder design. Long high modulus carbon fiber's, wetted with epoxy, are kept straight and pulled through voids in the aluminium profile. After drying, the fiber's become set at zero degrees, resulting in an extremely lightweight air shaft with the rigidity of steel. The carbon is completely protected on all sides by aluminium and cannot be cut into or damaged. Due to its low inertia, the shafts can quickly accelerate and run at very high speeds that are unapproachable with steel or even wound carbon lug models.
