THE COMPOSITE TECHNICIAN PROFESSION:
Composite technicians and fabricators assemble both finished products and the parts that go into them. They use tools, machines, and their hands to make engines, computers, aircraft, toys, electronic devices, and more. Composite Materials Technology allows fabrication in manufacturing parts and assemblies for a variety of applications. These parts are formed by combining at least two different materials that are very different from each other to create superior properties; such as strength, heat resistance, and being lightweight. The different materials work together to give the composite unique properties that are more beneficial than standard manufacturing materials.
