Fabrication methods
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.

Natural fiber composites: Market share, one part at a time

Natural fiber composites: Market share, one part at a time
Suppliers and adventurous composites fabricators put the “feel good” aspect in the rearview mirror, winning customers by competing on price and performance.

The rise of HP-RTM
Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.

The markets: Automotive (2014)
A revitalized auto industry emerged from the Great Recession in 2012 leaner and, in terms of health-related concerns, cleaner, too, but faced a one-two punch in terms of fuel economy and carbon-dioxide (CO2) emission standards that put intense focus on vehicle lightweighting.

Auto composites quest: One-minute cycle time?
Faced with high fuel prices and ever-more stringent restrictions on tailpipe emissions, automakers are taking composites into their own hands.
