Shape Machining’s Innovative Carbon Fiber Suspension Links

September 30 2019

Shape Machining Ltd. has designed, manufactured, and successfully tested a carbon fiber suspension link for a high-end automotive manufacturer (OEM).

The impressive design uses ShapeTex and epoxy thermoset resins technologies to make a part that can be pressed in very short cycle times. The advantage of this technique over a formed aluminum part is a 45% weight saving. Managing Director, Peter McCool, said “This is a fantastic combination of technologies that we have developed, in-house, to exploit the growing market sector for advanced structural composite components in the automotive and aerospace sectors.”

Shape provided all the engineering, design, tooling and manufacturing services to complete this project. Shape offers these same services to all customers across a variety of industry sectors.
