Carbinium Engineering

When you need something unusual come to Carbinium!

The new series of Spitting Images on Britbox turned out to be a TV debut for Carbinium Engineering’s products.
When Spitting Image producers Avalon needed some remotely controlled eye mechanisms for the Spitting Image puppets, they turned to Carbinium Engineering for a design and build solution.
Anyone who has seen Spitting Image will know that every puppet is unique and so is the mechanism that controls the movement of the eyes and eyelids.

Using parametric 3D modelling, Carbinium produce an eye mechanism to the exact size requirements for each puppet.

Carbinium Engineering are best known for their marine projects, but the Spitting Image project showcases the company’s ability to design and manufacture one off custom solutions whatever the challenge.

Carbinium Engineering are proud to announce our contribution to the recently launched Spirit 111 including 3D machined solid timber, composite mould tools, hydraulically powered deck gear and multi-link hinges.

The majority of our work is for yacht builders such as Spirit Yachts; other projects have ranged from prototype components for supersonic rockets through to parts for sub-sea surveys.

We specialise in making one off and low volume items alongside regular small production runs.  One of the things which makes us different is the shear range of materials we work with, using carbon fibre as well as metals, plastics and timber.

In 2019 we moved into new premises at the Scottow Enterprise Park in North Norfolk. At the same time we expanded our offering which includes 3 D Design and CAM services, CNC machined plugs and moulds, 3, 4 and 5 axis CNC milling, turning and routing.

Our parts go from design to manufacture completely within our internal systems without the need for any printed drawings and instructions.  It’s great to be able to work on such a variety of projects, all under our own roof.

We have made a great start to 2020 by installing our third new HAAS CNC machine.

This latest addition is a new Haas VM3 vertical milling centre in preparation for a busy 2020.

The VM3 is designed for mould making and other precision work.

With a table size of 1372 x 660mm and a Z travel of 635mm, the VM3 is capable of handling large work pieces and is being supplied fully equipped with wireless probing, high speed machining and through spindle coolant.

Carbinium have also installed the latest Haas TRT160 5th axis trunnion for the machine giving them the ability to offer simultaneous 5 axis machining for parts that will sit with a cylindrical envelope size of 250mm tall x 250mm diameter.

We are delighted to launch 2020 with such a broad range of offerings for our growing list of clients with 3, 4 and 5 axis CNC milling capabilities alongside CNC turning and CNC routing.
