Steps in the manufacture of a composite part


Composite parts are made by layering composite material onto one or more molds. Getting the mold design and manufacture right is crucial to a good end result. With Mouldbox all you need to do is upload a part design and with a click you will receive a mold ready for lay-up of composite material.
