P05 – AIX2SPACE
Modular Aachen Planetary Exploration System
“Space colonization is getting closer every day, new forms of habitat must be designed and created. IGLUNA allows new generations to participate in this progress and shape the next steps that will change the future of humanity”
During IGLUNA 2020 under the „AMPEX“ team we developed and constructed a miniaturized spinning unit, which is able to produce endless fibers from processable raw materials by the nozzle drawing process. The aim this year is to enable the production under vacuum conditions, so we are a step closer to produce under Moon settings.
The system in this work is looking to perform the process with minimal human interaction. The complete automation of industrial fiberglass production plants has not yet been realized, and the AIX2SPACE spinning unit will be the first to achieve automation in these systems.
