SHOW NEWS: High performance composites from Lentus

LinkedIn +

Lentus Composites has developed a range of CFRP propshafts and flexible drive couplings for motorsport applications. These products have been designed to meet demanding applications, with a focus on fatigue performance, reliability and weight. These propshafts and driveshafts are designed to meet the requirements of each application for an optimised solution. Typical applications for these parts would be DTM, Japanese Super GT and the FIAGT categories.

Lentus’s filament-wound CFRP pressure vessels and accumulators offer considerable weight savings. Processes and facilities are in place to allow for validated parts to be designed, manufactured and delivered in very compressed timescales – customer focus is key to Lentus.

Lentus produces composite sleeves for motors, generators and energy storage flywheels used in the energy recovery systems that are now widely applied in top-level motorsport.

Manufacturing is controlled under ISO 9001:2008 quality systems and business processes. Inspection and testing facilities enable mechanical testing to take place for product validation and qualification as well as physical characterisation of the composite, NDT and dimensional inspection.

Come and see Lentus at the Professional MotorSport World Expo on 11-13 November 2015, Stand 3052.
