|Abstract:||High Temperature Engineers Limited of Fareham, Hampshire, have spent three years in the study, development and application of carbon fibre technology and, with the aid of various authorities, including the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough, have gained wide knowledge and experience leading to the practical application of carbon fibre. When considering the commercial viability of potential products, it was accepted that structural tubes and push-pull, or torsional control rods, as used in the aerospace industry, would be ideal for manufacture in carbon fibre and could be offered at competitive prices. The Company is now equipped to produce economically precision tubes for such applications with tolerances on longitudinal accuracy, wall thickness and material consistency as good, if not better than seamless, drawn aluminium alloy and steel tubes.|
