CTG's transmission systems provide a light weight alternative to metal
CTG realised that the aerospace market would not favour reliance upon adhesives joining the metal flange to the composite structure. Therefore the company developed a patented composite to metal interface which allows the reliable transfer of torque with zero reliance upon adhesives, reducing risk of failure. CTG has also developed other elements for a transmission shaft system, including universal joints and TORQdisc couplings; these further contribute to part reduction and weight savings.
CTG, a Collins Aerospace Company is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of advanced composite products and systems. The company has established an international reputation for innovation, quality and successful development of composite solutions. CTG is at the forefront of filament winding technology, specialising in precise fibre placement techniques and innovating new technology in joining metals to composites. Transmission systems benefit from CTG's patented metal to carbon composite joining technology to deliver an overall low weight solution.
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.
