Study on Network Structure C-Cu Composites of Pantograph Slide Plates
novel pantograph sliding plate, the network of carbon-copper composites, composed of carbon fiber cloth, copper powder, graphite powder, et al. The physical and mechanical properties of the new samples were tested. Compared with the commonly used pantograph sliding plate, the novel one has lower resistivity, higher bending strength, enhanced impact toughness and better mechanical properties. The new material is suitable for producing the pantograph sliding plate of the electric locomotive.
