Originally developed for the aerospace industry, Carbon/Carbon composites have now been recognized to provide an extremely cost effective solution for furnace fixture applications. The unique attributes of CCI’s Carbon/Carbon composites offer important advantages over both metal and graphite fixtures.
CCI’s manufacturing technology allows a wide variety of sizes and geometries to be fabricated.
We would welcome the opportunity to discuss which grade is best suited to your application.
Unlike metal fixtures, which twist and warp over time, Carbon/Carbon composites will remain flat and actually increase in strength at elevated temperatures. You reduce scrap and maintain tighter part tolerances.
The high strength to weight ratio and low specific heat of Carbon/Carbon composites allow you to load more parts in each furnace and reduce the cycle time.
Cracks will not propagate catastrophically as occurs with molded graphite fixtures.
