Where? Delft, The Netherlands
What? Arceon manufactures novel materials for a range of challenging applications, such as aerospace, energy or machinery.
What, exactly? Engineering new materials is a huge field of activity, because today’s (and even more tomorrow’s) applications are more demanding and sometimes dangerous than yesterday’s. The challenge is to manufacture materials that are lighter than metals but also resistant to corrosion, radiation and/or extreme heat. Lighter spacecrafts mean a larger payload or a cheaper flight. Lighter transport means are also cheaper and less polluting, too. Resistant materials mean safer factories and less maintenance, etc.
