The light linear shaft made of carbon

The shaft made of CFK Composite is especially light and strong

The carbon linear shaft is a lot lighter than linear shafts made of aluminium or stainless steel. The carbon shaft is used wherever weight needs to be reduced in design.
The X-ray transparency is another advantage of the carbon fibre. So the material is often used in medical or measurement technology.

  • Extremely lightweight
  • X-ray transparent
  • High strength and resistant
  • Non-metallic
  • Non-magnetic
