CENTA Carbon Fibre Technology

Light weight drive shafts to satisfy most demanding applications
Advanced Technology for Boat and Ship Propulsion
Light-weight drive shaft made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic

For energy-efficient power transmission while simultaneously permitting increased velocities of the driven machines.

Developed in cooperation with the Technical University of Darmstadt and leading classification societies. Strength and stability comparable to steel, but significant savings in weight. Combinable with a variety of flexible couplings and connecting elements for optimum adaption of the torsional situation. Extremely durable and noise damping. With low thermal expansion, fatigue-free and corrosion-proof.

Availabe in any length with up to 10 metres per section. Further handling, maintenance and cost benefits by the omission of additional components, such as bearings and foundations.

Why rely on CENTA Carbon Fibre Technology?
Proven results, longer life and higher quality

Long Span

Almost any length is possible by combining sections that can be at 12m each.

Adaptable

Accurate torque limitation prevents costly downtime

Highly Engineered Design

The CENTA Carbon has been developed to satisfy the most demanding applications for boat and ship propulsions.

Lightweight

Up to 70% of weight saving compared to conventional steel shafts. Supporting bearings and pedestals can be omitted, resulting in real cost savings.
