Despite its complex shape, it needs to be lightweight and strong enough to support the weight of a cow. Because of these combined complexities, composite materials offer an ideal solution here. 

Why are composites used here?

Lightweight
Experience shows that the use of carbon fibre can realise a weight decrease between 20 – 400%.  The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.
