Carbon-fibre passerelles and gangways

Great attention is always paid to the aesthetic result, even for secondary hardware. Each project includes:

• 2D drawing and 3D modelling
• FE analysis and optimisation
• Kinematic controls and optimisation
• Development of electro-hydraulic components
• As-built structural testing
• As-built functional testing

Each component, unless otherwise requested, is laminated with pre-preg carbon-fibre fabrics, cured at high temperatures and vacuum consolidated.

All stainless steel AISI 316L and 6083T6 aluminium fittings are CNC machined and verified through thorough quality-control procedures.
