ArCarb-HPS

High Precision Structures

ArCarb-HPS is specifically tailored for high precision systems where co-efficient of thermal expansion of a component can highly influence the output of a system. ArCarb-HPS combines fiber architecture and design expertise to obtain near zero co-efficient of thermal expansion along with significant weight reduction.

Advantages

  • Near zero coefficient of thermal expansion for highly accurate mechanism
  • Lightweight structures due to low material density (1.9 g/cm3 ) and thin walled geometries (t ≥ 0.15mm) for fast moving components
  • Environmentally stable. No swelling or detectable outgassing in vacuum allows the use of our composite near optics

Application Domain

  • Lithography
  • Laser
  • Calibration
  • Opto-mechanical
  • Medical equipments
  • Analysing equipments
