For example, a completely automated process, i.e., no human being is required,
has a great attraction for use in radioactive or clean environments. In the area of
fabrication of composites, it has led to two very important techniques: automatic
tape placement (ATL) and automatic fiber placement (AFP). Another ...
Automated tape placement (ATP) has gained wide acceptance for part fabrication
in the aerospace industry; examples include aircraft wings, body skins, and
control surfaces.

This research in conjunction with the FreedomCar program at the United States
Council for Automotive Research (USCAR) indicates that the price of carbon fiber
has to fall to $5 to $7 per pound (about 50 percent) before it can be cost
competitive for high-volume automobiles ... The processing (part fabrication)
process will likely run differently, and may operate much slower than the
incumbent material (e.g., molding is much slower than stamping, sometimes by a
factor of 10). USCAR ...
