The ALPHA STRUT design has been successfully tested to over one million load cycles at load limits in both tension and compression

Park introduces its new composite Alpha Strut for aerospace applications

ALPHA STRUT™ (patent pending) is Park's new proprietary composite strut design. The ALPHA STRUT, which is designed for aircraft and other aerospace medium to high load bearing applications, joins Park's patented SIGMA STRUT™, which is designed for space and other aerospace very high load bearing applications. The ALPHA STRUT and SIGMA STRUT designs provide significant weight savings and load carrying reliability by utilizing unique end-fittings, which are co-cured into each end of the struts. This technique allows the fittings to transfer the full load through the strut body without having to rely on bond areas to carry shear loads as with typical designs.

The ALPHA STRUT design has been successfully tested to over one million load cycles at load limits in both tension and compression.
