Strong, ligthweight but ...

Carbon lamination is a well-known process that allows for the manufacture of composite parts using carbon fiber and epoxy resin. The process involves superimposing layers of resin-impregnated carbon fiber fabrics, followed by pressing and heating them in a vacuum mold. To achieve an optimal result, manufacturing requires the use of an autoclave as a common requirement.. 

Making frequent changes or occasional adjustments is more challenging and expensive because each time they have to recreate a new specific mold that corresponds to the new design.

These manufacturing processes have another gap: carbon fiber is only strong in the length-directionUsually, they use multiple weaved carbon fiber fabrics to ensure that the part is strong enough for the underlying forces. The result is that carbon laminating processes use much more carbon as it would be necessary, which makes the composite part more expensive and also little bit heavier.
