(b) Use annotated sketches and/or notes to show how the frame of a tennis racket would be
manufactured as a batch of 200 from a composite material.
Identify any relevant materials, quality control checks and specialist tooling.
Your response must demonstrate the processes involved. (8marks)

Hiya!!!
So what you would do is describe what material you would use, and then what process to use that material. So (I haven't taken DT in a year now so half my knowledge has left my brain but I'll give it my best go), I've forgotten all composite materials so you'd have to be more specific that just using a thermapolymer but for my sake I'll just say that. I would probably say I'd injection mould a tennis racket so I'd go through a step by step process of explain the injection mould, probably doing a few diagrams to just describe what I'm doing. Then as I go I'd also explain all QC checks and what tools I was using (gloves, injecting moulder, plastic granules etc.) Honestly because it's been so long this might not be so helpful, give the mark scheme a check that's what I used.
