Carbon Inserts

Space Carbon Inserts are bonded into CFRP honeycomb panels. They allow weight savings, good/adequate thermoelastic behaviour and stability.

Carbon Inserts

Industrialization process improves lead times

A combination of fiber type and layup

High quality referential with ISO and Space Agencies Certification


Thickness From 3mm to 48mm
Specific developments On-demand
Full space qualification File provided

Space Carbon inserts are manufactured by MECANO ID from Carbon fabric / Epoxy resin using RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) plates as a raw material. These inserts are space qualified.

Our own specific manufacturing processes and tools ensure uniform and repeatable high quality level.

Inserts are machined depending on customer design and allow complex geometry. Their characteristics are adjustable with respect to specifications by choosing adapted basic materials and optimized fiber orientations. They can be manufactured individually or by batch.

Our space qualified inserts are validated by a series of acceptance tests: mechanical compression, ultrasonic, micrography, void volume ratio determination and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
In accordance with performance requirements of the application, carbon inserts allow weight savings, adequate/good thermoelastic behavior and corrosion resistance.
