Products and Industries

Over the years FAPS has made sophisticated components in carbon fiber for many different uses where utmost performance is required in terms of weight, rigidity, strength, reduced mass, higher critical speeds, fewer vibrations, corrosion resistance and thermal stability only possible with composite materials, particularly CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers) and unobtainable with conventional materials such as steel, aluminium or titanium.

Due to the different manufacturing technologies used by FAPS composite components can be made with extremely high physical-mechanical characteristics, very high percentages of fiber (the greater the fiber content the higher the mechanical performance achievable). Where these are not required, elements can also be made with lesser characteristics, according to the specific needs of the different industries, considerably reducing production costs.

INDUSTRY
These components are made to customer specifications, using the Finite Element Method FEM to analyse structural behaviour and deal with critical aspects before the construction and testing stages.
USES: automatic articulated arms, control instruments, robotics, packaging, composite slabs with thicknesses of a few tenths up to 40mm, motorized rollers, idle rollers, printing rollers, expansion shafts, connections, transmission shafts, hydraulics, pumps, vessels, support beams, pivots, parts to drawings, and windings for magnetic rotors.

Why make pipes and rollers in epoxy-based composite material?
ADVANTAGES: less weight and greater rigidity than metal, reduced bending and vibrations, higher speeds achievable, possibility to orient and regulate the flexibility of the part involved, easy to work, easy to join to other metal and plastic elements, excellent chemical resistance, reduced heat expansion, customizable roughness, reduced mass and inertia, high balancing levels and optimization of frequencies.

SPORT
USES: top end sports gear for professionals or amateurs in: cycling, motor biking, sailing (booms, spinnaker poles, bowsprits, race double, and cruisers), ski poles, fishing (rods and accessories).
ADVANTAGES: less weight and greater rigidity than metal, strength, customization, adaptable shapes, flexibility during processing, production of complex parts, and controllable rigidity according to application needs.
CYCLING
We make simple or complex parts and components for cycle frames for top level professionals and amateurs. Our components boast numerous successes and world records in different cycling specialities for the most prestigious makes. The components are made to our customers’ specifications and where necessary make use of FEM analysis of structural behaviour so as to deal with any critical points before the construction and testing stages.
FISHING
For over thirty years FAPS has been synonymous worldwide with perfection and innovation in the fishing rod industry. Research into ever higher production quality standards, careful choice of technologically valid materials and our complete supply chain in Italy are still at the heart of our products. Continuous technological development and the unique nature of each individual product made in our Italian facilities mean that our products are particularly sought after by the professionals of this sport which, like few others, make great demands on the structural characteristics of their tackle.


SAILING
Faps has proven experience in the nautical industry and it manufactures particulars in composite materials either for professional or for amateurs. Studies, experimentation and tests at sea have enable Faps to develop a range of products and innovative applications, easily adaptable to every kind of sail and boat.
USES: Tiller/Stick, Tiller extension, bow sprits, battens, spinnaker poles and jib booms with cylindrical, cylindrical-conical and biconical profiles and "pali per tendalini".
ADVANTAGES: Less weight and greater rigidity than metal, strength, customization, flexibility during processing, production of complex parts, controllable rigidity according to application needs and a great resistance against chemical attack.
