Top Three Benefits of Using Carbon Fiber To Build Robots

The Society of Robots reports that carbon fiber has become an essential material for robots now and in the future, because it is very strong in compression and tension while being exceptionally lightweight. Robotic components, particularly , can be fabricated into any size or shape with the benefit being:

  1. Reduced weight
  2. Increased part stiffness
  3. Improved automation processes

Industrial automations’ increased speed and greater precision is vital for improved efficiency, and one way to achieve this is through reduced weight and increased stiffness of robotic parts. The benefits of carbon fiber, as explained here by Antonio Gervosi, from CarboSix, translate directly to:

  • Increased speed on the production line
  • Higher precision
  • Reduced motor and actuator loads
  • Improved reliability
