In composites prodution it’s vital to reduce waste, both from cost and environmental perspective. If we zoom in on the cutting & kitting operation, we discover that Automation unlocks the potential of smart nesting and optimisation algorithms to minimise the material waste. Want to know more?
In this Point of View, we explore the opportunities for automation and digitalisation in the honeycomb potting process. Read about processes used today and their challenges, the current market dynamics and what the future holds.
In the space market, there is an increasing demand for small satellites: in the next decade many thousands of these smallsats must find their way into Earth orbit. But without access to launch, how can newspace companies get their smallsats to space and meet demand?
