Carbon fiber is the lightest and strongest material available. The market for carbon fiber parts is growing by 13% annually, and will reach $35B per year by 2020. The leading sectors for carbon fiber parts are aerospace, automotive, and energy,
Lightweight parts are expensive, because current composite manufacturing processes are costly and do not scale to mass production rates.
- Labor cost
Composite fabrication requires highly skilled technicians.
- Quality cost
Expensive quality controls and testing are required to mitigate human error.
- Scaling cost
Training and additional equipment costs limit scalability.
Seriforge reduces this cost with our automated carbon fiber preforming process.
