There is a rise in demand for composite materials across industries such as construction, aerospace, automotive, marine, wind energy and more.
Composites typically holds a higher strength to weight ratio than traditional materials. In addition to this, composites offer other advantages including flexibility, durability, resistance to corrosion, easy maintenance, and it is freely bondable with non-composite materials as well.
Every industry has their own set of use cases for using different types of fibers in their composite mix, including glass and carbon. However, one challenge that cuts across all these industries and materials, is the lack of technological innovations that can help curve the composite panels.
Adapa cooperate with experts from the field of composites, to help them shape their composite material for unique curved applications.
One mould can take multiple shapes, and it can do so within minutes. This means that you have:
The Adaptive Mould eliminates the need for manufacturing unique tooling for every panel and because of this you have:
The Adaptive Mould significantly reduces your potential waste of disposable moulds, which means that you have:
Ideal for Glassfiber designs with double curved geometry.
Ideal for Glassfiber, Thermoplastics and Composites in general, with double curved geometry design.
Ideal for a wide range of composite materials, with complex double curved geometry design.
