AIREX Air Shaft Carbon Type
When air is inserted, many lugs (tabs) will protrude, and the core can be clamped.
- Weight saving
By using the steel shaft made out of carbon (CFRP,) approximately half the original weight can be reduced. *Comparison is of the main body part only, not including the shaft ends.
Specific density comparison: Steel (7.86,) aluminum alloy (2.8,) carbon (1.6.)
- High strength and minimum deflection
By reducing weight by using aluminum alloy for the shaft body, the strength will reduce significantly compared to steel, and deflection will also increase, so it may not be suitable for heavy loads. With carbon (CFRP,) there is minimal reduction in strength or increase in deflection, so like steel, it is suitable for heavy loads.
- Low inertia and eco-friendly
A carbon (CFRP) shaft’s GD² (intertia) is approximately half of that of aluminum alloy, and approximately 1/5 of that of steel. Therefore, it can reduce the energy consumption of the rotational motion, making it an eco-friendly air shaft that matches with the current times.。
- Beautiful appearance
The perimeter of the carbon pipe features a beautiful plaid cross-winding finish. Also, it will not rust due to high corrosion resistance of CFRP.
