About Carlton Badminton Company:
Carlton sports, a leading sports equipment manufacturing company from UK. Its research and develop wing is located at Camberley, England. Carlton is known for innovative ideas and new technology in racket sports. Checkout Wiki
Following are some innovative ideas developed first time by Carlton Sports:
- Carlton first time developed plastic shuttle using injection moulding which proving superior quality shuttle. This new innovation changed the complete idea of shuttle manufacturing. With new injection moulding , now manufacturer can produce better quality shuttle with minimum time.
- Carlton first time developed complete metal body racket: This is again a new concept and change the overall racket manufacturing process. All metal racket developed by Carlton offers better strength, Flexibility and power.
- Carlton first time developed One Piece Racket: With Power flow series, Carlton first time developed with complete one piece racket. One piece racket provides better racket characteristics.
- Carlton first time developed the Flex System: Flex is very important in badminton racket. By controlling he Flex, overall racket playing characteristics can be manage like power ,control , repulsion and speed.
New Technologies Developed by Carlton in Badminton :
Carlton Aero Slim Frame Technology:
Carlton research team identity the need of rigid and strengthen frame. Rigid and Strengthen frame could offer better stability and more power on smashes. Carlton developed new technologies in rackets in which construction material is reduced from unwanted area and increased the material within the shaft at more power generating are of the racket. Carlton redesign the cross section of racket frames and reduces the section profile has been minimized as compare to other racket frame cross sections. By doing so, Carlton could give best in class racket frame design for professional badminton players. While amount of material is reduced from cross section area, on other hand Carlton add additional material on shaft cross section to improve the rigidity. This will add more stiffness to racket shaft which result into lightening fast racket repulsion.
Carlton doing research and development & studying the bio-mechanics behavior of the badminton swing. In order to improve the racket swing, Carlton developed new Bi-Axial frame profile more efficient in comparison with other competitor frame and improve the frame shape to get best aerodynamic from racket frame. As aerodynamics of the frame is improved so racket frame will face less air resistance results into better racket swing speed. Eventually, you will get super fast badminton racket swing.
TRIPLE TAPER TECHNOLOGY:
Carlton used additional graphite content at top of racket frame. With additional graphite content racket become head heavy with more rigid configurations. This type of configurations gives better power in badminton shots. Player can effectively place the smashes while 3rd line shots can be easily cleared.
Technologies in Carlton Head Geometry:
In order to create the powerful hit with perfect timing, Carlton increased the sweet spot area. This is accomplished by increasing the main string length. Large sweet spot area will provide you more opportunities to hit the powerful shots.
In order to increase the air-flow and control, Carlton combines the large sweet spot of the isometric frame. This is done by the OPTIMETRIC head geometry which will provide you better swing speed and control.
Technologies in Carlton Frame Construction
With 40 years of manufacturing experience in the field of badminton equipments manufacturing Carlton produces world class sports equipments for different level of players. All the higher end Carlton rackets are handmade by skilled operators of Carlton Factory. With the help of skilled manpower Carlton produced State-Of-Art badminton rackets for professional players
J HM Carbon:
Carlton used Japanese HM Carbon which is having higher carbon content available in the market. Carlton frame will give you better performance as compare to other construction material. With the help of Japanese HM Carbon, player will get better response time and perfect stability which will result into perfect shot placement with more accuracy.
Carlton develops new technology i.e. called NANOPULSE. Carlton’s new technology having carbon construction with nano resin which is combined the carbon fibers of frame profile. During frame manufacturing process, Carlton creates an ultra compatible and constant construction frame which will provide you higher molecular uniformity. As a result, the frame remains constant on shuttle impact as compare to other standard carbon construction which will provide you improved frame performance with higher control and accuracy.
RAZOR GUIDED TECHNOLOGY:
In this technology, Carlton improved the manufacturing process of frame in which Carlton eliminates the Grommets and direct allows string to move in direct contact with frame. In this frame, Carlton increased the synergies between two racket frames which will provide you better feel and touch when shuttle impact on the string. As a result, Carlton frame provide you better shots and control with more accuracy.
Carlton done the bio-mechanics studies of badminton swings to develop the frame profile in which racket is easily moved through the air. Carlton used unique vortex geometry frame which will provide you twisted aerodynamics frame profile and increased the racket swing speed and mobility. According to the bio-mechanics study of badminton swing, racket has to work to complement your badminton shots. This new innovation of racket geometry helps badminton player to perform accurate badminton shots with more control.
XTREME TENSION FRAME:
Carlton has done the research to enhance the frame material as a result of that Carlton develop new frame material which will provide you more strengthen racket frame. This strengthen racket frame can sustain 11% higher string tension as compare to other racket frame. With the help of this racket frame players get the more repulsion power.
Technologies in Carlton Grommet construction:
MICRO GROMMET SYSTEM:
Carlton developed Micro grommet system which results into improving badminton shots with better control and decreased aerodynamics drag. In Micro Grommet system, Carlton having tapered edges as compare to traditional circular Grommets shape. As a result, Carlton increased the frame profile process which will provide you better shuttle feedback with more control.
PRO V12 GROMMETS:
In this grommet system, Carlton did the softening of the grommet which will provide you perfect string motion through the grommets.
Technologies in Carlton Handle Construction:
DIRECT FIBER TRANSFER:
Carlton has done the research on handle of the frame. By putting the carbon in internal layer and PU in outer layer in which the carbon is placed between the shaft and the handle and form a unit which works as close link. By doing so Carlton increased the strength and offers a stable racket shaft during shuttle impact.
Carlton changed the design of racket handle cap and invented the new 4 convex channel into it. New Cab design with 4 convex channels increased the stiffness of handle geometry and offers into better stability.
