In measuring technologies as well as in optics, accuracy and dimensional stability are paramount. This is exactly where CFRP components offer great potential. For example, their thermal expansion coefficients can be set to very low values. This is of great importance for many dimensionally stabilizing components used in precision and measuring machines.
SGL Carbon offers complete support for an optimal adaptation of the components to your needs – along the entire value chain, from the fiber via composite materials to the finished SIGRACOMP® component.
Application examples of SIGRACOMP® CFRP components for measuring technology and optics are sensor tubes, columns, optical scissors, camera plates and lens mounts.
In high-tech applications requiring high strength and stiffness combined with light weight, our carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) components are indispensable. The properties of CFRP materials bring to bear precisely when other materials reach their limits. CFRP is considerably lighter than aluminum or steel, while being extremely durable.
