DO IT IN COMPOSITE
Glass / carbon fiber tactical masts – Solutions for specific lifting
Specific mechanical characteristics / Lightness / Economical
SOLUTION FOR GREAT-HEIGHT PRUNING
Located in the Isère region, the Eliatis company and Plasticon Composites France have developed a triple telescopic mast made of fiberglass / epoxide matrix. Thanks to its hydraulic engine, the mast spreads out over 23 m, which enables the activation of a 700-mm-in-diameter saw blade at its end.
Road-approved, this machine makes it possible to prune with complete safety, in forest areas, notably along high-voltage power lines (insulating characteristic of the composite mast). The « Alti-coup » system is a registered trademark sold around the world by the Eliatis company.
Mechanical characteristics of the epoxy resin :
-Density : 1200 kg/m3
-Elastic modulus : 3200 MPa.
-Poisson’s ratio : 0.37
-Compression resistance : 120 MPa.
-Traction resistance: 74 MPa.
-Shearing resistance : 43 MPa.
Mechanical characteristics of the E-Glass fiber :
-Density : 2600 kg/m3
-Elastic modulus : 73000 MPa.
-Poisson’s ratio : 0.22
-Compression resistance : 1155 MPa.
-Traction resistance: : 1916 MPa.
-Shearing resistance : 1155 MPa.
GLASS / CARBON FIBER MILITARY TACTICAL MAST
Non-magnetism / Economical / Cost-weight ratio / Specific mechanical characteristics.
Mast composed of 12 telescopic tubes of variable length and a 3-mm thickness, carbon-fiber-epoxy-resin made. The mast is locked in place by means of aluminium clamping clips.
Height when spread out = 18 000 mm
Height when retracted = 2500 mm
Locked in place by means of aluminium clamping clips
The mast is shrouded on 3 levels by a total of 9 cables.
