Thermoplastic composites and the winds of change

JEC Korea DAY 3 Speaker: Cole NIELSEN, Founder & CTO @ Orbital Composites

- The massive use of composites in the wind industry is creating a massive, non-recyclable waste problem
- Cost-effective, robotic, mobile single-tow fibre placement with recyclable thermoplastics is essential to increasing structural efficiency and removing cost barriers
- Orbital Composites has created a scalable robotic 3D printing system that is adaptive to the needs of the modern wind industry
