Carbon fiber is becoming a more common practice in the aerospace and automotive industries. Also more popular than ever due to the material’s longevity, lightweight composition, and corrosion-resistant nature.As the leading manufacturer of CNC machining Carbon Fiber parts for over 25 years, Worthy Hardware is well equipped with 35 sets CNC Machines, including 3 sets 5 axes,4 sets 3 axes, 12 sets turning and milling compound. These machines could allow us to make prototypes, small-batch, and mass production parts for Carbon Fiber.
What is CNC Machining Carbon Fiber?
Carbon Fiber is a polymer high-strength and high-modulus fiber with carbon content above 90% it is composed of carbon atoms bonded together to form a long chain. The carbon content is more than 90%. Then it is very strong and light-weight.These makes carbon fiber could make many kinds of complex parts using CNC machining process. In 1879 Thomas Edison used bamboo, linen or cotton yarn as raw materials, and first made carbon fibers and obtained a patent.
CNC machining carbon fiber is a process that applies computer-controlled digital technology to remove the extra material and complete any necessary cutting, turning or milling. This can be done with machine tools depending on what's needed for your specific programmings before getting an end product from carbon fiber in their final form.

What are the benefits of CNC Machining Carbon Fiber
CNC machining carbon fiber differs from machining metals, including aluminum, as carbon fiber conducts heat poorly and at the same time transfers little heat during milling. Therefore risk is higher due to overheating of the resin that provides bonding for carbon fibers and local damage to material undergoing cutting. At the same time, carbon fiber is a very demanding material as regards the tools used – CNC carbon fiber sheet machining rapidly blunts the cutting edge, requiring frequent tool replacement.
Thanks to over 25 years experience in the field of carbon fiber sheet machining service, we deliver details and components free of any defects such as bulging, with smooth edges, sized perfectly to specification and with appealing aesthetic appearance.
1) Good corrosion performance: Carbon fiber material can not only resist the damage of UV, but also has good corrosion performance. It can still work normally in harsh and complex environments.
2) Good abrasion resistance: Carbon fiber material also has abrasion resistance and impact resistance, which has obvious advantages over general materials
3) Good permeability: Due to the good permeability,carbon fiber is very popular in the medical industry. The medical bed board has a high X-ray transmittance, which can reduce the radiation damage of X-rays to patients.
4) Excellent electricity and thermal conductivity: Carbon fibers have low thermal conductivity and electrically conductive.It is used by aerospace engineers in making asphalt in airports.

Justin, CEO of a lighting company
I inspected the top two pieces of all five boxes. Everything is beautiful! BEAUTIFUL! You remove so much stress from my shoulders. I know that when we pay you to manufacture a product, it will be made perfectly. The glass bead blasting and anodizing is always beautiful. I am so very happy! You make it easier for us to run our business. There is no trouble! With most factories, I have a moment of fear before I open their boxes. Will the components be made correctly? Do they care about quality? It is often a war. And Dennis has to fight the war, treating most factories like small children! But, not your company. You’re company is world-class. You make beautiful components!Thank you very much for your hard work. We will work together for many lifetimes!
David, General manager for a family owned business
I’ve been working with Chinese manufacturers since 2004 and had some really unfortunate partnerships until 2012 when we partnered with Worthy Hardware. At first,we only gave them small orders to test and make the start. However,their response speed was very fast ,and their engineers help us improved our designs more simple, this helped us reduce a lot of cost.Our cooperate is more and more stable! We trust Worthy Hardware always ,very responsible. Your guys are great! .Worthy Hardware is by far my favorite, because of the way they handle business and the quality of what they make.If you are from USA and would like to know more about Worthy Hardware,i would be very happy to be as an endorsement.
CNC Machining Carbon Fiber FAQ
1. What are the applications for CNC Machining Carbon Fiber?
Carbon fibers have versatile functions based on their properties. Consequently, it is an important material in many industries for example automotive, aerospace, and military. Aerospace: The fiber material of carbon is a good choice for space applications because it reduces weight and provides strength. Aerospace companies can use this product to make planes, satellites or rocket engines that fly into outer-space; reducing their consumption of fuel, while increasing the efficiency in achieving higher speed with less noise pollution since China has developed its own composites using these materials over plant based options like steel alloys which requires large amounts resources just due to production costs Military: In Military Space, the use of carbon fiber materials for new weapons is more important than ever before. Sporting goods: Carbon fiber materials are used in making sporting goods such as tennis rackets, bicycles,fishing rods, bats, etc., due to their high performance. The material is ideal for such use since it is light and strong. Medicine: Carbon fibers are also important in medicine. For example, due to being transparent on x-ray images, it is used in x-ray equipment. Also, because it is strong and light it is applicable in making prosthetic limbs. Anyhow, with CNC machining and 3D Printing machines, you can also fabricate carbon fibers from the comfort of your home. For example, you can make use of the material in making furniture, utensils, and even fireproof clothes.
