Tianbing Technology has fully mastered the development capabilities of large-scale composite cabin sections and achieves another major breakthrough in the development of high-quality, high-efficiency, low-cost products“, says the Chinese company.

The rocket fairing is located at the front end of the rocket and is an extremely important and complex section of the rocket. The TL-3 large fairing has a diameter of 4200 mm and a length of about 13 meters. It is made entirely of carbon fiber composite materials. It is the largest fairing in domestic commercial aerospace and the largest full carbon fiber fairing in China. It is also the first domestic fairing that is customized for satellite internet constellations. It can be called the most advanced composite fairing in the country.

Through innovative technology, the development cost of the TL-3 fairing was reduced by 30% and production efficiency was increased by more than 20%, which greatly shortened the product development cycle and ensured the success rate of mass production of Tianbing Technology’s subsequent products and high-intensity launch missions, according to the company.
