Symmetrix Composite Tooling is a Supplier/Technical Partner with New York Yacht Club American Magic, the U.S. Challenger for the 36th America’s Cup.
To provide the necessary patterns and molds for American Magic’s two AC75 foiling monohulls and for the 26-meter tall mast, Symmetrix used its large format CMS Poseidon 5-Axis CNC machine, measuring 26 meters long by 6.2 meters wide. The vast size of the machine allowed Symmetrix to produce the patterns and molds within sub-millimeter accuracy. The patterns were used in a unique process to create high-temperature carbon fiber molds used to build the hulls of American Magic’s two boats.
Symmetrix Composite Tooling and American Magic have been partners since 2017 when Symmetrix helped create a mast for The Mule, the team’s testing platform. Symmetrix also provided molds for DEFIANT, the first hull, that launched in Rhode Island in September 2019, and for PATRIOT, the final hull, which recently launched in New Zealand, host of America’s Cup in March 2021.
