Infinitely Configurable ◾ Design Flexibility ◾ Creative ◾ Strong Yet Lightweight

CARBONNect is a system of joint connector kits that can be used to create an almost infinite variety of structures. We’ve designed this system using three sizes of standard, off-the-self carbon fiber tubes and any carbon fiber plates. Rock West Composites offers the connector kits, kits, tubesplatestoolkits, as well as design and assembly services

Advantages of the CARBONNect™ System

  • Lightweight:  About 1/3 that of aluminum or steel comparable technologies
  • Strong:  Appropriate for aerospace and industrial applications
  • Modular:  Can be reconfigured
  • Mechanical Connections:  Eliminates potential adhesive and bond failures

The product line is made up of 24 different kits, which include connectors made of CNC-machined, aircraft-grade 6061-T6 black anodized aluminum and screws with 170,000 PSI tensile strength.  You can use 1-inch, 1.5-inch and 2.0-inch Interior Diameter (ID) round carbon fiber composite tubing of varying thicknesses and any plate thickness.
