Carbon Fiber Cutting Methods

Security First – Usage Security

Carbon Fiber dust can cause itching, or you will have problem breathing if you inhale it. Carbon fiber dust can trigger asthma easily. Proper Safety Measures will prevent this from happening:

  • Long sleeves or a Tyvek paint fit
  • Gloves, nitrile is okay. However, leather or mechanic gloves are much better when utilizing or cutting power tools
  • Dust mask or respirator
  • Excellent ventilation, rigging a store vac or using a downdraft table to gather the dust is much better
  • Eye defense, mainly when using power tools

Preparation

Investing a little time in advance for excellent preparation is a fundamental part of producing quality work, and it will save time and disappointment later on. Follow these excellent tips to prepare for the cutting procedure:

  • Measuring tape, keep in mind to measure two times and cut once!
  • Masking will help you to make detailing cuts which will allow you to make more accurate marks.
  • Marking tool, a metal silver Sharpie works excellent on the carbon fiber. You can also use a pen or pencil on top of the masking tape.
  • The backing product assists in minimizing blow-out and splintering. You can use wood or thick foam insulation to secure your carbon fiber sheet to.

Method #1 – Rotary Tool

If you have a rotary cutting toolkit such as a Dremel, this is a terrific starting point for cutting carbon fiber. Get a Diamond Coated Cutting Wheel which is used for cutting tile and use this only if you have a lot of cutting to do. Get an Aluminum Oxide Grinding Bit, or you can also use a Rotary Sanding bit for more complex shapes. Both of these kits will be available in your Dremel tool kit.

Method #2 – Angle Grinder

 An advanced approach for the rotary cutting tool is an angle grinder. It can make simple work of cutting straight lines in carbon fiber. An elemental metal cutting abrasive wheel is the tool of option for this type of cutting.

Finishing Cut Edges

After a part has actually been cut, we advise using a sanding block or hand tools to correct the alignment of out and clean up your edges. We use a range of various sanding blocks and hand tools to assist with whatever from long straight edges to intricate cuts, corners or holes. As soon as your cut edge has actually been appropriately sanded or submitted, you can secure the sides of your part by just blending a little batch of resin and thoroughly using it to the cut edge.

SPARTEC COMPOSITE HISTORY OF BOAT BUILDING

Spartec composite boat making history goes back to 1930s when steel and iron were widely used in boat making but planked in wood. With the introduction of new technology, Spartec is now using the best innovation to make the components used in boat building. with the introduction of glass fibre reinforced plastics, their innovation, and unrivaled technology is being used  to produce the right components to be used in manufacturing all types of modern boats which are used for military, fishing, recreation, cruising, hunting, speedboats and for conducting scientific research in lakes and waters all over the world. Around the 1960s when fiberglass became a constant feature in boat building, Spartec started making superior fiberglass which is non-corrosive and resistant to rot and rust.

In the last 30 years or so, Spartec has perfected the technology of using carbon fiber because of its weight and stiffness. It best suited to make masts, rudder stocks, and hulls. Other  parts that Spartec is using today to manufacture superior boats components are listed  below:

ANCHOR:  This is a heavy device attached to a boat’s stem by a warp and chain.

BILGE:

This is the lowest part of the hull’s interior, just below the sole. Water and fuel tanks are accommodated at the bilge to lower the boat’s center of gravity.

BILGE PUMP:

This is placed at the lowest point in the bilges where water is collected when the boat is in an upright position to guard against blockages.

BOW: This is the front and rear end of the hull.  Its specifically made to reduce the resistance of the hull, when cutting through the water. Its height should be capable of preventing water to wash over the deck of the hull.

BREAST HOOK:

This is a triangular-like component fitted across the stem of a ship to strengthen the fore part and unite the bows on each side. Breasthook may be fitted where no decking laid.

PLANING HULLS:  They allow a boat to rise above the waters as the speed picks up and are bowed in shape.

DISPLACEMENT HULLS:  They bear a shape which cannot accommodate planning. They are heavy and cannot have the right power to achieve planning. They travel through the water at a limited rate which is often defined by the waterline length.

CHINED & HARD CHINED HULLS:  These are made up of flat panels which meet at a sharp angle. Chined hulls range from flat bottomed boats to skiffs where the bottom is arch
