Lightweight composite material reduces the load on the aircraft


The Israeli company Kanfit presented a hybrid metal composite material currently underway at the Singapore Air Show, which significantly reduces the weight of military components.

Shachar Fine, director of business development for the company, said that for the production of material, which is approximately 20% lighter than traditional materials used in the manufacture of aircraft parts, a hybrid structure is used that combines a metal frame with a composite filler.

"This technology is universal and can be applied to any aircraft," explains Fain. "Our solution provides far superior structures."

For the production of products, the company uses polyester resin injection molding technology (resin transfer molding, RTM). The result is a monolithic structure.

The company's products include: guided bombs, UAV engine covers, RTM antennas, satellite dishes, heat trap shops and much more. The company occupies a particularly strong position in the production of heat trap stores and, in their words, this system did not have a single failure due to the lack of seams, welding or assembly.

Representatives of the company report that thanks to this material, “exceptionally” light products, less sensitive to temperature, less visible on the radar and able to “withstand the most extreme weather conditions during the flight,” are obtained.

The company's customers are Boeing, Elbit and AgustaWestland, and Kanfit acts as a second or third party under contracts with other manufacturers (for example, parts from this material are used in F-16 of Singapore).

    ..So you don’t know what to do with these Russian planes? More precisely - this is called gliders, aircraft iron. Taki need to buy them! Without electronics, they will be given cheaply. And the filling to do ours! And I will tell you more - after all, these gliders will be at the level of 10-15 years! But we’ll change the filling .. No, just imagine the PAK FA squadron in the sky of Iran .. And the pensive faces of the ayatollll ...

    Arthur, Haifa, T-50 can not be compared with the F-35 - these are fundamentally different classes of aircraft. The T-50 is a heavy strike fighter, a competitor to the F-22, and the F-35 is a light multi-role fighter

    a very similar nonsense was carried by another Russian officer comparing Israeli and Russian drones. he also has a Russian counterpart much better than the Israeli one. but on one condition that the Israeli are already flying, and the Russian will finish designing by 2018. I am 4 years old and my brother is 5, and next year we will be the same age (anecdote from kindergarten)

    In modern combat, speed, maneuverability and altitude are not decisive in victory. With similar indicators, the artificial intelligence of the aircraft is decisive. Otherwise, the stuffing of the aircraft and in Russia with intelligence, including artificial, is a problem. They lag behind in this area for more than one decade. Although they have advanced far in the field of self-PR

    Against the background of the battle that is unfolding in India between the Russian T-50 and the American F-35, we may not hear that either. These statements are worthless. T-50 is still absolutely raw material, in real life there are only 4 copies. Will they be able to finish it or not - the grandmother wondered in two. And it is necessary to compare it not with the F-22, but with the F-35, a real competitor for the sky and for the markets.

    What a fine fellow! Except that the F-22 has been in service for over 10 years.

    Ole, ole, ole, ole, Russia forward!

    Aviation General Alexander Zelin does not finish. They say that the Russian PAK fighter is superior not only to the rest of the samovars, but is also the most deadly combat vehicle in the whole galaxy. Shy Alexander Zelin.

    The joke is that the F-22 raptor has long been in service. and PAK T-50 - only in the rich imagination of the Commander. There is a glider, but not t of electronic stuffing at all - India has not even begun to do so far
