Custom Carbon Fiber Fabrication

Macy Industries, Inc., can provide you with our custom carbon fiber fabrication services. We have the capabilities and processes to produce unique parts or components to meet specific requirements or tolerances. We make our own molds, giving us complete control over the design, testing, and final product. The use of carbon fiber materials is now being implemented not only in advanced military applications but also in general manufacturing, recreational and medical applications. Contact us to see how we can help your application.

Pilot Innovations

Macy is one of the few companies utilizing carbon fibers in New Hampshire. Carbon fiber provides an alternative to conventional materials such as aluminum, fiberglass, and steel, at reduced weight. Carbon fiber can provide users with characteristics that include:

  • Optimized Load Bearing Designs
  • High Machinability & Tolerances
  • Increased Physical Strength
  • Thermal Resistance
  • High Wear and Corrosion Resistance
  • Vibration Damping

The Carbon fiber fabrication/assembly processes used in our construction methods can be designed to provide centralized strength characteristics in optimized load bearing areas.

  • Physical strength, lightweight, machinability.
  • Low CTE – parts can be manufactured with closer tolerances which reduce both component size and weight, minimizes warping, and maintains structural integrity of components.
  • Quieter operational use, higher resistance to withstand fracture when under repeated stress from varying loads, and longer component life.
