Optimization of carbon fibre production using the Taguchi method

  • Jim-Shy Tsai
Papers

Abstract

Since the variation of carbon fibre mechanical properties is very large, the Taguchi method was used to produce carbon fibre in a pilot plant, and to improve the properties of carbon fibre. Due to the production conditions of the Taguchi method, the tensile strength, modulus and breaking elongation of carbon fibre are increased by about 20, 13 and 26%, respectively.
