Design and manufacturing of a mastermodel/plug based on a CAD model
Prototyping / first sample production and moulding for the serial production. Suggestion for the technology according to the size of the serial.
Production of glass, kevlar and carbon fiber reinforced cover elements with RTM technology
Plug and direct aluminum tool milling on 5-axis CNC equipment
Production of soft, hard and integral foams by high-pressure reactive injection molding machines
Surface preparation and high - gloss or structural painting of parts by acrylic or PU two component paints
Carbon Composites Ltd. was founded in 1992, with the main goal to produce carbon surfboards for the world championships. In 1994 we shifted our focus more and more towards the automotive industries, technologies were adjusted for highly productive, closed mold processes.
At those times, Hungaro Lada was our main partner. Carbon Ltd. produced PU-RIM exterior parts for the classical Lada Niva vehicle. In the meantime, Ikarus and NABI appeared as customers for prototyping and seral production of big interior covers for long range buses.
The opening of the western markets for German OEM-s resulted for Carbon Ltd. with long term contracts. We became certified suppliers for the special vehicles of the VW group member MAN Bus & Truck company as well for Daimler AG.
By developing our equipment, automating our processes we could also enter the aviation industries with Diehl Aircabin, and the Railway industries with the Hungarian State Railway Holding. The high performance and low weight reinforced plastics also found the niche in the medical equipment industries and in military applications
Our production competences can be divided into 2 groups. For oversized products, with high mechanical properties we build molds for closed techniques, such Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) with glass fibre reinforcement. After the part production the mechanical finishing, such as trimming and drilling are done, followed by the surface preparation and the painting. The size of the production is up to few 1000 de-moldings per annum.
The other main technological feature is the Polyurethane section. The high pressure dosing units, and the presses are used to create 3D shaped parts in aluminium molds. The variety of the row material provides the withstanding possibility to produce soft foams, light weight elastomeric parts, integral foams or compact systems. This highly productive technique is the solution for mid- or high production size, even as an alternative for injection molding.
Our company is located in the heart of the Balaton National Park, in Central Europe, therefore we are committed to a sustainable, environment friendly production. On a total industrial zone of 35. 000 square meters the production facility covers 3,200 square meters. Our state of the art production halls are using renewables, such as solar energy for the electric system, and biomass for the heating. The groomed environment around us is maintained by over 50 Galloway cows.
