Several companies are now manufacturing reinforced composite products and researchers are developing manufacturing methods without a reference that thoroughly covers the manufacturing guidelines. Composites Manufacturing: Materials, Product, and Process Engineering fills this void. It encompasses all of the aspects of high-quality, low cost composite parts manufacturing. The author presents a fundamental classification of processes, helping you understand where a process fits within the overall scheme and which process is best suited for a particular component.
