Flashback Friday

By | All News, Industrial News, Media | No Comments

Today we are blowing out the cobwebs and looking back to 2010 when we made the most highly loaded tube in CST history. Transitioning the 95,000 kg working loads into the laminate made it an extremely complex tube to engineer as well as manufacture. We had to ensure that the safety factors were sufficient which resulted in the laminate thickness in some areas exceeding 75mm. Many new production processes were developed for this project, ranging from thick laminate curing to incorporating the metal threaded ends during the winding. This was a great milestone in CST history.

CST was proud to receive the GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN INTEGRATION AWARD at the Endeavour awards last night in Melbourne. We were in good company as we were able to edge out other finalists such as Boeing and BOC. The award is recognition of our success at being able to tap into global supply chains with innovative and cost competitive components while still being based out of Australia. Chis Dixon, CST’s GM was on hand to accept the award.

Ten years active in the Moth Class and the NEW 2018 Deck Sweeper masts

By | All News, Marine News | No Comments

It’s been 10 years since CST composites released the one piece M351. This mast was a revolution at the time, cutting the mast diameter from 50mm to 40mm. The Moth Worlds 2008 were won by Australian John Harris at ‘Windy’ Weymouth in July 2008.

The class has come a long way since then and we at CST are stoked to support the class and excited to celebrate the recent 8th victory with CST spars. Below is a breakdown of CST’s victories over the last ten years.

To celebrate this latest world championship win we will be releasing the production “Deck Sweeper” mast. The world championship winning mast and boom are now available:

  • Deck Sweeper DS1 Mast: Used by Paul Goodison to win the 2018 worlds and is targeted at the top end of the fleet.
  • Deck Sweeper DS4 Mast: This mast is a little stiffer and easier to sail downwind and will help the good sailor become better.
  • Tapered Bent Boom: Also used by Paul Goodison to win the 2018 worlds.

The Elite range of masts is still available and suitable for conventional sails which are still fast and current. The most popular being the Elite 21, Elite 22 and Elite 24.
