Adjustable carbon fiber tie-rods

Epsilon Composite supplies a complete range of adjustable tie rods.

These adjustable tie rods are commonly used in the aerospace industry as structural elements, for attaching equipments or for flight controls.

Epsilon Composite has developed and qualified on various aircraft programs (including Airbus aircrafts) a solution without bonding of the end-fittings that guarantees the reliability of the parts obtained, in order to ensure the safety of flights.
This solution is based on industrial processes such as pultrusion and thermoplastic composite injection, which allows us to offer high-performance products at optimized costs for medium and large series.

Non-destructive testing of the tie rods makes it possible to prove compliance with requirements (material health & dimensions).

Versatile technology recognized in different sectors of activity

Besides the aerospace industry, this technology has also been qualified for the production of structural struts and robotic arms for manufacturing and agricultural equipment industries. This innovation was rewarded with the Global Industrie Award 2023. Read more: “Global Industrie Award 2023“.
