With the rapid development of 5G base stations, the demand for 5G radomes is also increasing. If radomes are still manufactured with traditional way, they will inevitably suffer from the limitations of limited production capacity and unstable quality. It is precisely because of these difficulties that the pultrusion customized production technology and manufacturing process of FRP radome has been upgraded. The 5G radome is manufactured mechanized by pultrusion. For traditional radomes, the 5G radome with customized pultrusion of FRP radome has the following advantages:
Surface: The brushed radome has a smooth surface with the same thickness, and the hand-laid radome has a smooth surface with different thicknesses.
Inside: The combination of drawing machine and drawing die makes the force of each part more uniform, which effectively compensates for the defects of artificial hand lay-up radome with uneven thickness, uneven air gap, and many edge burrs.
Features: The radome produced by the pultrusion process has strong tensile and compression resistance and long life.
High efficiency: FRP radome pultrusion customization adopts automatic mechanical molding, modular assembly, high production efficiency, and convenient transportation and assembly.
At present, the 5G antenna’s requirements for the transmission rate are still not met, so there is still a long way to go for the pultrusion of FRP radome. This requires the concerted efforts of many glass fiber reinforced plastic manufacturing enterprises, and continuous innovation in existing processes and technologies, whether in structural or material aspects, can make a bright future for the communications industry.
