Orbex Rocket Factory in Scotland

December 02 2019

The UK bases startup plans to create the next generation of the renewably-fueled orbital launch vehicles that will take payloads into space. The company also unveiled its new Mission Control Centre that will be used to monitor rocket launches, as well as engine tests from its two propulsion test sites.

The company has installed several new production systems, including one of the largest carbon fiber winding machines in Europe. This 18-metre long machine automates the rapid weaving of intricate mixes of materials to build the main rocket structures. Orbex has worked for several years to investigate and perfect the carbon fiber blend used in the patented construction of its Prime rocket. Due to its choice of design and materials, Orbex Prime will be 30 per cent lighter than similar-sized rockets, allowing acceleration from 0 to 1,330 km/h in just 60 seconds.
