The drone industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. According to the report The new Drone Market Report 2022 from Droneii the drone market is worth an estimated US$30.6 billion. Their updated market model forecasts a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 7.8% until 2030. Drones are increasingly being used in various industries and areas. Transporting goods is one of the drones’ most important functions. Intensive work is therefore being done to develop drones with a focus on maximizing payload capacity in a safe and appropriate way.
Windtec has received several requests from manufacturers who wants to know if we can develop components that can reduce the overall weight of the drone. The answer is undoubtedly: Yes we can! We have extensive experience in developing weight-reducing components without compromising the strength or durability of the drone.
How can Windtec help increase the drone’s maximum payload?
To increase a drones payload capacity, one of the keys are weight reduction. Based on the research we have done, we see a common potential for weight reduction of both the drone frame and the cargo containers that is attached to the drone. With our winding technology we have the opportunity to make composites with extremely low weight but yet satisfying strength and stiffness. This happens as a result of the fiber being placed very accurately and continuously around the entire component. Using this method, we are able to create a coherent component without weak points. In addition, Windtec has extensive experience with compounds of resin for various purposes. This ensures that we find the best compositions based on desired purposes and specifications.
