You can theorise all you like, have many Phd boffins doing detail calculations, ...but nothing convinces an engineer more than a basic physical test.
These are some of the first CompoTech Carbon Fibre beams with composite Dynamic Damping, cDD, being tested relative the same beam without the damping material.
These beams are destined for lightweight robotic applications where they are expected to improve the speed and accuracy of the tasks being performed.
CompoTech Carbon Fibre Composite beams have been deployed reliably for many years in many applications. The combination of the unique CompoTech manufacturing process, innovative composite, and clever design detail have resulted in stronger stiffer and lighter beams of all shapes. The addition of damping technology completes a portfolio of technology that will drive forward productivity for many CompoTech customers in a range of industries.
CompoTech has been working on the engineering of an unstayed carbon fibre structure for the Seascape 18 wing mast, known as Wingscape. The Wingscape was developed by Seascape, Ori Wingsail and One Sails based on the patented Omerwing, a soft wing with camber control and reefing capabilty giving up to 20% increased performance.
CompoTech’s Graphite fibre composites technology allows a 3.2m cutting width of the Esko’s Kongsberg C cutting table. The composite traverse beam is long enough to allow todays large format printing size without compromising on performance.
CompoTech has been working with Czech Formula motor racing to produce a monocoque chasis for the race car. The resulting shell, made from a single AFL process, has much higher torsional stiffness than previous shell, laminated and assembled from various pieces.
