Company Carbonautica specialises in the design and manufacture ...
Carbonautica specialises in the design and manufacture of high quality Carbon Fibre and GFC( Glass Fiber Composite) components Since its foundation in 1998 , Carbonautica has produced specialist carbon parts for applications as diverse as professional racing bicycles, rotors for radiocontrolled helicopters and marine steering wheels.
With a manufacturing facility in Slovenia (EU), our main area of business is currently in the Marine sector where we make carbon and GFC components for many of the world’s leading yacht manufacturers as well as supplying Around the World yacht racing teams. Our current products include monocoque carbon fibre and
GFC steering wheels, lightweight carbon gangways and high performance carbon or composite rudders. Carbonautica was the first to produce a true monocoque steering wheel for racing yachts with no bonds or seams and the quality of our work remains unrivalled. Our customers include CNB, XYachts, Elan.
After investment in 2004 Carbonautica has continued to grow, moving twice to bigger facilities, allowing improvements in technology each time. Our own R&D houses 2.5m x 1.6m CNC milling machine, 3D printer, CNC foam cutter, laser cutter and laser engraver allowing us to make small compex or big moulds up to five metres in length which we do in ceramic for series
productions or in aluminium. It has allowed us to become independent from sub-contractors for design and mould manufacture and also gives us necessary tools and knowledge to develop new products or parts. We have a 6m x 4m custon-built heated downdraft spray booth, and our curing oven can take objects up to 6 metres long.
Customers can now send us 3D rendering directly from their design departments and from that we can produce both the mould and the finished product to very critical tolerances. Many of our products have required and have been awarded CE (European Union “Kite-Mark”) certification.
