Aluminium Tooling for High Quality carbon fibre parts
HIGHER QUALITY PARTS FROM NEW TOOLING METHODS.
Light Black Design is currently working with Richard Faulkner Composites in the UK to design and produce tooling to allow Richard and his team to manufacture multiple carbon fibre parts with an extremely high quality surface finish.
To allow them to repeat the quality over and over again I recommended that they machine moulds from aluminium and engaged a machine shop that will produce the tools for a competitive price.
Despite the higher initial investment, the overall cost of producing the 18 carbon parts is lower due to the reduced amount of preparation work required on the tools before each part is made, with very little finishing needed on the parts.
