This is our (Solar Åter, or KTH Solar Powered Recycling, 2018 #kthopportunitiesfund recipients) final design of the solar thermal injection molder, built by the folks at a workshop called #WeDoo in the north of Denpasar, #Bali . We are excited to finally try this out tomorrow, and just transported it today to #RoleFoundation . It's based on the designs by #PreciousPlastics . After visiting their headquarters in Eindhoven last November to see the latest developments (I also gave a talk on potential solar thermal for their machines), I felt more confident that this would work and to keep pursuing it. The final results will be #opensource and a thread on our project already exists over in the Precious Plastics forum.
Although #kthopportunitiesfund doesn't cover this build this year (the funds go to the much needed #solar#PV system), the funds we received from them in 2017 allowed for the construction and development of the first prototypes, so I'll include updates of this machine this week as well! It's being developed in parallel to the solar panel installation we were granted funds for. Without the initial funding from #kthalumni we never would have gotten this far! We are so grateful for everyone who has believed in our idea since 2017
Our previous prototype reached 210C, but this one uses a compound parabola and we hope will reach higher temperatures. It has got heating elements to boost the temperature further as needed with electricity - so we can boost it from the power here, part of which is solar panels that are being installed as the grid isn't so reliable. It makes even 3D printing tough as 220/230V often jumps down to 150V... We still have a couple issues like insulation to sort out tomorrow but will keep you posted on how well it works!
