Tension-compression struts are frequently used in mechanical engineering
and are subjected to very high mechanical stresses as well as accelerations
and decelerations. Increasingly, the reduction of the component mass is of
great importance for the application. Components made of fibre composites
offer these advantages.
A current new development from CirComp is the IsoGrid carbon strut.
In contrast to a winding tube with a closed surface, the IsoGrid strut has
deliberately defined diamond-shaped openings. The load-bearing fibres are
optimally placed and used for the respective requirements of the component.
This makes it possible to create particularly light and, at the same time, high-
