DESIGN

The performance of the composite shafts is crucial for the systems to work effectively in a wide variety of industries such as automotive and aerospace.

Most used cases are:

  • Propeller blades, propulsion shafts, propellers
  • Truss section decking, landing pads
  • Autobodies, chassis, driveshafts
  • Biomedical devices

Main purpose of a composite shaft is to transmit torque and forces efficiently as well as providing weight reduction. In this case, acquiring desired performance and efficiency are only possible with accurately connected parts. With our knowledge and gained experience about adhesive technology, we offer composite shaft design which provides of the proper contact and transmission between shaft and couplings (mostly metals are used).

PROCESS

In order to manufacture high-quality composite shafts, we use two cutting-edge technologies; Filament winding and Braiding + High-Pressure RTM.

The filament winding process is preferred for standard composite shafts with desired ply orientations.

For more specific mechanical requirements, braiding and high pressure resin transfer moulding technology is used which focused on composite shaft geometry.

MARKETS

By focusing on your usage area, we are offering the most proper composite shaft and couplings to satisfy your requirements with well-engineered solutions.

Automotive & Motorsports

Driveshafts are mostly used in the automotive industry to transmit torque as a lightweight alternative. Superior advantage of stiffness to weight ratio allows vehicles to be fuel-efficient by weight reduction. High torque value can be achieved by benefiting from the mechanical properties of carbon fiber and its manufacturing processes.

Marine

In marine applications where high fatigue behaviour and torque transmission capacities are required, composite shafts come into action to provide long life and satisfying mechanical properties mostly used on engine subsystems.

Industrial Applications

From small scale to large scales, composite shafts are preferred in a wide range of industrial applications. Depending on their geometrical shape and the main purpose of composite shafts, they are mostly used for weight reduction, torque transmit capacity, durability, long fatigue resistance which are the pioneering properties.

Aerospace

Composite transmission shaft usages are rapidly increasing in the aerospace industry as well as other composite materials in this industry. Composite shafts have huge benefits on the aerospace industry by having long fatigue life, high stiffness to weight ratio, high durability as well as offering weight reduction.
