Do you have a requirement for carbon fibre tooling?

The in-house design team at Axiom have plenty of experience designing and building bespoke carbon fibre tools for various automotive customers to assist with specific areas of the manufacturing process.

Their most recent work included a design brief calling for a light weight but strong component and carbon fibre offered the obvious solution. Once the in-house design was refined, the bespoke tooling was manufactured using Axiom’s high-spec 5 Axis CNC machine.

Once again Axiom demonstrates its capabilities for customers wanting in-house bespoke design, high precision machinists and accurate tooling resulting in well thought out manufacturing solutions.

Acetal parts for medical industry

Axiom PD have been producing some high-speed machined Acetal parts for a client in the medical industry. The brief was for high tolerance, precision engineered parts made from Acetal, a thermoplastic material which offers low friction, high stiffness and excellent dimension stability.

Our highly skilled machinists were able to programme, machine and finish the products in the quick turnaround required with the help of our precision DMG machines and skilled operators. Axiom PD specialise in the quick turnaround of projects and the ability to react efficiently to customers design, material and engineering requirements.

Carbon manufacturing tooling

The Axiom in-house design team have designed a bespoke tool for an automotive customer to assist with the application of paint lines onto vehicles.

The design brief was for a light weight, flexible strong component. Once designed the tooling was manufactured in-house using 5 axis CNC machines. The image shows the carbon fibre parts that were produced from the Axiom designed and manufactured tools.

Great demonstration of the skills and experience of the team at Axiom as well as the advantages of having an in-house design team alongside the highly skilled machinists and top class DGM 5 Axis machines. Winning combination!
