Revolutionizing Industrial Torque Reaction Solutions with Carbon Fiber

Ideal for low torque application and applications that require torque tools to reach broad areas.

GCI Engineered Solutions (Garfield, MN) announced its carbon fiber torque tube. The lightweight composite solution weighs approximately one-third of its steel counterparts. 

Two key tests were undertaken in the design process: a durability test to examine fatigue and a max load test to determine the torque tube’s breaking point. The durability test involved running the tube through 100,000 vertical torque cycles, 50,000 horizontal torque cycles and 50,000 cycles with a 30-pound offset load. For the max load test, the applied load of a torque tool was continuously increased until the point of failure was reached.

Features:

  • Ideal for low torque application (< 200NM) and applications that require torque tools to reach broad areas
  • Compatible with overhead bridge and jib crane systems
  • Improves safety and ergonomics of repetitive processes
