What is the Best Method to Process a Carbon Fiber Prototype?

Whether you’re designing a prototype or looking for the next lightweight alternative to steel, you’ve probably encountered carbon fiber, the silk-like composite material used in aviation, sports equipment, and everything in between. Despite concerns that carbon fiber composite polymers can be brittle, they’re excellent for prototyping. Just as there are different uses for carbon fiber, so too are there many different methods its manufacture. Here are the top carbon fiber manufacturing methods, and how they’ll help you build your next prototype. Compression Molding One of the quickest methods of developing a carbon fiber prototype is to simply press the fiber […]
