Full-Carbon Struts D32


With more than 10 years of flight heritage, our space qualified full-carbon struts ensure high quality, high performance and low weight of the structures they compose. Serial manufacturing is now possible thanks to the development of AFP (Automated Fiber Placement) means.

Full-Carbon Struts D32

Industrialization process improves lead times

A combination of fiber type and layup

High quality referential with ISO and Space Agencies Certification


Standard Tube Diameter 32.05 mm
End-fitting interface Titanium thread M10
Length up to 1570 mm
Specific developments On-demand
Full space qualification File provided

Space Full-Carbon Struts are manufactured by MECANO ID from Carbon Tubes and Carbon end-fittings with central Titanium M10 threads. These struts are space qualified.

Our space qualified full carbon struts are validated by a series of acceptance tests.
In accordance with performance requirements of the application, full-carbon struts allow weight savings, temperature and corrosion resistance. Strut length is adjustable by choosing adapted tube length.
For Carbon Tubes, three levels of development are provided:

  • Level 1: Standard tubes defined in our catalog with pre-defined diameters and layups
  • Level 2: Tubes based on our molds (Ø15 to Ø70), for which it is easy to adapt a specific layup (fiber type, plies number and orientation)
  • Level 3: Specific tubes to answer our specific customers requirements

For Carbon end-fittings, adapted threads can be chosen.
