These connectors are sure to revolutionize the connection of carbon fiber tubes.

DragonPlate has been granted a patent for their Modular Carbon Fiber Tube Connectors. Using these anodized aluminum connectors, 0.5", 0.75" or 1" carbon fiber tubes can be connected to form disassemblable complex structures. Both 2D and 3D joints are possible. No complex fixturing, screwing or drilling of tubes is necessary. The patented design creates a superior bond that does not require drilling of holes that can compromise tube strength.

Connectors are available in many different configurations allowing for creation of hundreds of joints and an unlimited number of light-weight rigid structures can be built. “These connectors are sure to revolutionize the connection of carbon fiber tubes.”, commented Andy Morabito, marketing manager of DragonPlate. “Previously, there has not been a practical way of connecting carbon tubes in a way that doesn’t compromise the integrity of the tube and takes full advantage of carbon fiber tube strength.”, he added.

Currently, they offer more than 30 connector types with more planned for the near future. For more information about Modular Carbon Fiber Tube Connectors, visit http://DragonPlate.com/Modular-Carbon-Fiber-Tube-Connectors
