In foreign countries, the earliest production of carbon fiber shaft is the driving shaft of the Morrison company, mainly for production of large trucks, then gradually applied to the automotive field. With the development of economy, more and more people are using cars. The transmission shaft is one of the key components of automobiles. Its quality affects some properties of cars. Now let’s introduce the performance advantages of carbon fiber transmission shafts.
The traditional carbon fiber drive shaft is generally used in iron and steel materials, and the material transmission shaft bending frequency is small, when the car at high speed and poor performance, the general steel shaft adopts the two section structure, there are many disadvantages, and carbon fiber composite drive shaft of superior performance, lightweight the car has been the pursuit of the goal, and realize the light to start from some parts of weight loss, the density of carbon fiber composite material is about 1.7g/cm3, used to make the transmission shaft can effectively reduce weight, compared to the steel shaft, to lose weight about 60%. Reduce energy consumption during the driving process. Moreover, the mechanical properties of carbon fiber composites are outstanding, and strength, stiffness and hardness are all better than most metal materials. It is one of the most widely used composite materials nowadays.
The transmission shaft keeps rotating when it is working, and it will cause friction with other components. Therefore, it has a certain ability of friction resistance. The friction resistance of carbon fiber composite materials can not be lost to metal materials, so it can be replaced completely. At the same time, the working temperature of carbon fiber composite material is high, fire retardant and flame retardant, which fully ensures the safety of the working process.
Carbon fiber composite material also has a series of advantages, such as energy absorption, resistance to corrosion, easy maintenance and so on. It is the choice of making the transmission shaft.
