Job Summary and Requirements:
Composite is a material that is synthesized from two or
more different materials, aiming to create a new material, superior and durable
than the original materials. Composite materials include base material and
reinforcement. The base material ensures the bonding of the aggregates to each
other, which makes the material consist of many monolithic, continuous
components, which ensure the composite’s thermal strength, strength and
endurance when the material is defective. disabled. Base materials of the
composite may be polymers, metals and carbon. Composite reinforcement materials
have elastic modulus and mechanical strength. Composites can be short
particles, powders, or fibers such as glass, polymer, fiber, and carbon fiber.
Composite material is a material whose properties depend on its coordinates (Carbon
Fiber Training | Composites Training, n.d).
Our company needs an experienced composite technician for
the research and development group. The applicant must be knowledgeable is all
facets of composite material layup, bagging techniques, and oven and autoclave
curing. The technician should be able to perform composite break out and trim
the composite parts to engineering specification. The technician should be
familiar with Microsoft Office software so that the appropriate documentations,
schedules, and planning can be made.
The company provides job training for employees
including: qualifications, knowledge, experience, skills, qualities following:
