The LUVOCOM® XCF product family offers carbon-fibre reinforced compounds for increased requirements. Machine components subjected to a high dynamic load require a low weight combined with good mechanical strength and a high degree of rigidity. LUVOCOM® XCF compounds impress with tensile strengths of up to 530 MPa, elastic moduli of up to 52 GPa, high impact strength and elevated thermal conductivity.
Benefits of XCF compounds for engineering:
- Exceptional mechanical properties
- Easy processing
- Reduction of costs and component weight compared to metal and composites
Cost benefit from injection moulding and 3D printing
Wherever tensile strength, dimensional accuracy and impact resistance are demanded, injection-moulded components with LUVOCOM® compounds represent an excellent alternative to metals. They give the design engineers a chance to deploy lighter and generally more economical parts. Typical applications are fast-moving components in the construction of machinery and apparatus – for example thread carriers, pump impellers, gear wheels, cams and connecting rods. Our materials have also proven their worth as an alternative to aluminium in the fabrication of casings.
In addition to classical injection moulding, 3D printing has also established itself as a production method for volume components. In terms of quality, selective laser sintering offers the best opportunities in this field. We offer proven solutions for this technique with our materials in the LUVOSINT® product series.
