Custom carbon fibre parts could be the ideal solution for your project. In this post, we outline what you should know about how to make custom carbon fibre parts.

How are Custom Carbon Fibre Parts Made?

Custom carbon fibre parts are made through a process called carbon fibre composite fabrication. There are many steps that need to be taken to achieve your desired finished product. The first step in custom carbon fibre part making is to design the part using computer-aided design (CAD) software. After a design has been chosen, mold preparation begins.

Once the design and mold have been created, it is time to begin the process of making a carbon fibre part. In most cases, prepreg cutting, layup, vacuum bagging, curing and demolding are all required to create a custom carbon fibre part. Depending on the unique needs of your project, other steps may be involved. Consulting with proven experts should always be your first step when looking to create custom carbon fibre parts.

How are Custom Molds for Carbon Fibre Made?

When looking into how to make a mold for carbon fibre parts, you’ll want to turn to an experienced composite fabricator. The process of making a mold for custom carbon fibre parts includes mold design, choosing the mold material, and making the mold itself. There are many factors that need to be considered when creating a mold for custom carbon fibre parts and the mold type will depend on the unique needs of your project. Some of the possible mold materials that could be used include fibreglass, aluminum, or even other composite materials.
