Craft Manufacturing Of Carbon Fiber Tubes

Help us to design a new solution to craft manufacture epoxy carbon fiber tubes using the wet lay-up technique

UPM Racing is an INSIA-UPM engineering students’ project. Every year, they design and manufacture two formula student vehicles (an electric one and an internal combustion engine one).

It is a student competition between universities with strict standards. Therefore, the production of formula student vehicles,with low economic resources, requires a high level of imagination and implication from the students when designing and producing each part:

  • Simple and economic manufacturing processes are required so that students can produce a high number of parts. In addition, they must produce them with the sufficient efficiency to achieve the best results.
  • Weight is very important when designing the vehicle, so producing parts with resistant and low weight materials is crucial.
  • Actually, carbon fiber tubes are manufactured with the wet lay-up technique, producing the two sides of the tube independently and combining them afterwards.
