Aircraft and Aerospace Fields

Space Satellite

Carbon fiber composite materials are widely applied and actually used in aircraft and aerospace fields, such as for civil and military aircrafts, rockets for space development and artificial satellites etc..

Sport and Recreations Fields

Bicycle

Fishing rods, golf shafts, tennis rackets, bicycles and in marine sports fields such as yachts, cruisers, racing boats, canoes and masts.

Environment and Energy Fields

Wind power generation

In order to reduce the degree of dependence on fossils fuel or atomic energy, utilizing such natural energy as wind and tidal power, solar heat etc. is being highly developed together with solving environmental problems. Carbon fiber composite materials are used also in these fields.

Medical Science Fields

CT-scanning medical equipment

CT scans and X-ray instruments in medical science fields and wheelchairs and care supporting equipments.

Automotives Fields

Automotives

Anti-pollution and fuel saving of automobiles are big tasks for the industries around the world. For this purpose, carbon fiber composite materials are used for structural parts of automobiles to attain the weight saving, which makes further acceleration to the development of their anti-pollution and lower fuel consumptions.

Building and Civil Engineering Fields

High-way Road

Due to the characteristics of the lightweight and high stiffness of carbon fiber composite materials, they are widely used as reinforcing materials in building structures, pier of expressways and Shinkansen bullet trains. Recently, they began to be used as earthquake-proof or its supportive materials for buildings.

Electronics Fields

Note Personal Computer

Due to the characteristics of the high strength, high stiffness and low specific gravity of carbon fiber composite materials, they are widely used in slim-type or weight- saving notebook and tablet PCs.

Industrial Fields

Robot Parts for accemble line

Carbon fiber composite materials are used in various kinds of parts of industrial machineries, such as robot arms and rolls for paper industry.
