To cut carbon tubes, use a Dremel motor with an abrasive cutting wheel for the cleanest cut possible. You can also use a fine-toothed hacksaw. Be sure the carbon tube is held securely in place, and use a gentle touch so as not to crush the carbon tube. Tape around the area to be cut to prevent splintering or separation of fibers and cut through the tape or between the tape wrappings. Wear eye protection and a dust mask for safety.
Wrapped carbon tubes are created by wrapping carbon fiber material that is pre-impregnated with resin (called pre-preg) around a steel mandrel, wrapping it in compaction tape, baking it, and then extracting the mandrel. We then trim the ends or cut the tube to size. Wrapped carbon tubes can be tapered or straight and in a multitude of different profiles. We have the ability to make the walls very thick by wrapping the carbon pre-preg multiple times around the mandrel or very thin with only a few wraps. We can even wrap carbon around wood dowels or other carbon or fiberlgass rods or tubes. Call us for details and help creating your own custom wrapped carbon tube!
