Carbon-Drive GmbH

lighten up machining!

Discover Our cutting edge motor spindles made out of carbon fiber

Why Choose Carbon-Drive?

Carbon reinforced plastic has unbeatable stiffness to mass ratio and 20-100 times better damping properties. It is very light and, when properly designed, has no thermal elongation. This offers clear advantage over steel. We are able to tailor the material behavior to our customers`need. That´s the key to build superior electric drives, that meet the increasing demand for dynamic, but durable and energy saving drives.

Specs: HSK-40 / Weight 4.9 kg / Power 10 kw / Lenght 190 mm / OD 109 mm / Speed 30.000 RPM

Whats your Benefit?

Are you ready to revolutionize your machining game? Look no further! Our cutting-edge Carbon Fiber Motor Spindles are here to redefine performance, efficiency, and thermal stability.

Vibration? What Vibration?

Carbon fiber’s innate damping properties turn your system into a zen master. No more jitters or wobbles – just smooth, uninterrupted motion. Whether you’re sculpting intricate details or hogging out material, your workpiece will thank you.

Zero Thermal Drama

Say farewell to thermal expansion woes! Our carbon fiber motor spindles remain rock-solid, even when the heat cranks up. Shorter warm-up times mean you’re in the zone faster, and your tool center point stays put throughout the operation. No more frustrating recalibrations!

Light as a Feather, Powerful as Thunder

By crafting motor spindles from carbon fiber, we’ve slashed the weight while turbocharging the power density. Imagine a featherweight champion packing a knockout punch! Say goodbye to sluggish movements and hello to lightning-fast precision.
