Abstract

A new one‐step process for manufacturing press hardened steel–carbon fiber reinforced (thermoset) polymer hybrid parts with potential for reduced cycle time, infrastructure requirements, and energy consumption compared with traditional two‐ and three‐step processes is developed. The process combines...
