She is an absolute novelty in the carbon processing. BMC names its new technology of load Specific weave (LSW). This means that with the high-tech weaving wheel can be woven varying material thicknesses and thus load distributions. On this innovative way, the later frame tubes can be adapted individually to the requirements of each individual frame game. After braiding the carbon fabric in the so-called molds “with epoxy resin impregnated and ago hardened in moulds which give their final form, the carbon tubes. Constant drying In the aftermath of the forms, the carbon tubes must harden and dry depending on the wall thickness and size between 15 and 120 minutes. Again, nothing is left to chance. BINDER ovens of series FED provide a constant dry climate with constant humidity and a temperature of 80 C at BMC.
To offer the best possible outcome, for the curing of epoxy resins. Ovens from BINDER be used also during final assembly and finishing of the parts of the frame. For the drying and curing of coatings, printing and the BINDER ovens of series FED Assembly adhesives play a significant role. With a capacity of 53 400 l up to and possible temperatures up to 300 c they adapt particularly well the most diverse requirements. And they can be a particularly good: saving energy.
Thanks to its 60mm thick insulation layer BINDER ovens have an extremely low heat emission. Fleet-footed success BINDER’s high quality products fit seamlessly into the world’s first automated production process of carbon fiber frame. Period of only four years, the developers of BMC made the ground-breaking system on the legs. It has paid off: an impec carbon frame by BMC takes on average only about 1 kg on the scale. The overall concept would show how successful then after a short time in practice, even a little surprised perhaps even BMC. Swiss BMC racing team could go in 2010 to the world champion of Cadel Evans in the Tour de France for the first time on an impec at the start.
