Abstract

A flexure element 10 is fabricated by placing a piece of resin covered tape 12 containing continuous glass fibers in a preform mold 14. The fiber ends 13 extend beyond the platens 16 which control the thickness. Along the fiber ends 13 a bead of resin 15 is formed and cured, which then becomes an anchor for the flexure element 10 when it is placed as an insert in the final mold for bonding in the final structure 18.
