HAAS VM6 Machine Center

Carbon by Design has acquired a new Haas VM6 large format tooling center (pictured) and new 26 foot long convection oven to increase our ability to process larger UAV tooling and Tier II sized fuselage assemblies.

Carbon by Design has acquired its fifth Haas CNC in less than three years to complete the planned capacity build-out to allow for the manufacturing of extremely large, monolithic aluminum tooling.

Dominick Consalvi, Owner, said: “This machining center will allow Carbon by Design to manufacture tooling in-house in a size format which was previously unavailable to us.” In conjunction with the CNC purchase Carbon by Design has completed the construction of a 26 foot long convection oven specifically suited to large fuselage assemblies. This oven was designed, manufactured and tested in-house and is a design which is propriety to Carbon by Design. The curing oven is PLC controlled and equipped with twelve channels of data logging capacity.
