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!
