A combination of processes is necessary. In many cases, combining two or more processes in fabricating a single part, thus creating a hybrid process (for example automated fiber-placed skins with staged pultruded stiffeners, all co-cured in one cure cycle) appears to be the most efficient approach. In general, co-curing as large parts as possible and combining with as much automation as possible seems to have the most promise for parts of low cost, high quality and consistency. Of course, the degree to which this can be done depends on how much risk is considered acceptable in a specific application and to what extent the investment required to implement more than one fabrication processes is justified by the size of the production run.

Also, because fibers are pulled, if the pulling direction is denoted by 0 , it is not possible to obtain layups with angles greater than 45 (or more negative than – 45 ). Some recent attempts have shown it is possible to obtain longitudinal structures with some taper. The process is very low cost. Long parts can be made and then cut at the desired length. Material scrap is minimal. With press molding it is possible to create small three-dimensional parts such as fittings. Typically, composite fittings made with hand layup or RTM without stitching suffer from low out-of-plane strength.
