At high speeds, scanner beams need to be able to hold scanning cameras completely still. For this purpose, carbon fibre composites offer the ideal solution.

Carbon scanner beam

The combined advantages of light weight and stiffness of composite materials are put to a good use in this situation. 

Why are composites used here?

High stiffness to weight ratio
The stiffness to weight ratio of a high modulus carbon fibre construction is typically 5 times higher than steel or aluminium.

The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.
