How is our carbon made? The first stage of the manufacturing process is to build a solid (computer cut) pattern, from which a mould for the panel is produced. The moulds are constructed by laying layers of pre-impregnated (with resin) carbon fibre on top of each pattern to produce the mould.
The production of the mould takes place in several stages, involving vacuum treatments, de-bulking and heating processes. The mould then has to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for use. The next phase is the actual fabrication of a part, made from sheets of pre-cut, pre-impregnated carbon fibre, which are carefully laid inside the moulds. It is thereby vital orientate the carbon fibre sheets in pre determined directions in order to achieve the desired strength. A total of 5 layers of carbon fibre are laid, forming the outer skin of the part (to achieve a final, cured thickness of 1mm, a total of 3-4 layers of carbon fibre must be laid down).
The next stage of the process is to cure the carbon fibre in an autoclave. This exposes the carbon fibre to a number of temperature/pressure cycles according to the specific requirements of the materials and components being processed. During this treatment, the resin impregnated in the carbon fibre flows into the surrounding fibres and is activated, thereby curing the carbon fibre. Once the outer skin has been cured and cooled down, a layer of fibre glass is fixed onto the outer skin by a sheet of resin to ensure the materials stick strongly together. The chassis panel then returns to the autoclave for curing.
After having cooled down again, one more layer, consisting of a number of pre-impregnated carbon fibre sheet is placed on top the existing skin, and again treated in the autoclave for a final time. When the part is completely produced, it is sent to an evaluation department, and when proven good, it can be deemed fit for sale.
There are many different types of carbon fibre, the two most used in the motorcycle industry are plain weave & twill weave. Below are two pictures of the different weave.
Plain weave: This weave is mostly used for manufactures such as Ducati & MVAgusta
(Picture above is gloss plain weave)
The other weave "twill" is mostly used with manufactures such as Aprilia, BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki & Yamaha
(Picture above is satin/matte twill weave)
