Carbon Fibre – Major Industries we service


From the very beginning: due to the advent of the first high performance jet fighter plane, Sutton Tools has provided assistance and support with tooling for the R&M sector of “whole of life” air frame maintenance, plus the OEM of new generation High Carbon Fibre Composite components for the new generation commercial aircraft.

Sutton Tools have been closely involved in the development of tooling solutions for the Commercial & Defence sectors of this rapidly advancing industry. We have extensive experience in VHM Rotary Shank tooling to match the outcomes now expected from this Industry. In conjunction with our ongoing R&D projects specifically our joint venture with the Australian Defence & Technology Organisation in the area of Aerospace Machining & Finishing we can manufacture made to order Tooling for most applications.


Technological advancements through Innovation constantly push industry to strive for green-solutions, which necessitates the use of Carbon Fibre composites.

As a result of the continuous push for strength increases and weight reductions being specified, more and more CF Composite & Kevlar materials has to be used in critical Motor vehicle manufacture. Driven by these industry advances, Sutton Tools continues to develop and manufacture VHM rotary shank Tooling to satisfy the needs beeing generated. This enables us to provide a fast solution for tools in automotive manufacturing, including the high-performance and motor sport sectors.


We have the tools for high tech recreational vessels, ocean racing and defence, that use high end carbon fibre composites. We design solutions for these applications.
