CTG's structural components provide a light weight solution to transfer load
CTG’s structural technology can transfer load in several different conditions with a number of joining solutions. One of the composite to metallic interfaces is designed to be pre-loaded, resulting in a fatigue proof component and can withstand large loads up to >1000KN. Others rely on a similar joint to the transmission shafts providing a lower costs and weight solution. Depending upon the application, these components are structurally designed to resist compression, tension, bending and torque loads.
CTG has a committed research and technology team that drive new technologies throughout the business. CTG patented structural technology has a wealth of applications from interior tie rods to centre wing box struts to hold open rods on engine nacelles. The composite solution provides a significant weight saving over metal equivalents, typically 30%.The additional stiffness can provide longer and stiffer components and the patented joining technology will provide a weight and cost saving to other composite solutions.
CTG has a team of experienced engineers who would be happy to discuss your specific aerospace requirements and installation to design, make and qualify a solution for your application.
