Space Techs Go into Aviation

Posted on April 30, 2014 by tim


Polymeric composite materials (PCM) that are used in constructing of space shuttles are lightweight and strong. Now those technologies are migrating to other spheres of usage. Aviation is among them.

At the entrance to the company there are examples of composite sections of the Soviet space shuttle “Buran”.

A workshop for manufacturing composite structures.

Here the machining of design and tooling for composite materials are being produced.

The company is involved in two major projects related to aviation technology. It is the creation of future aircraft MS21.

Processing of panel  for future PD-14 engine (“Perm Motors”), which will be installed on MS21

Prepregs – composite materials of semi-finished carbon fiber, or on the basis of glass fiber impregnated with a special binder.

Ready panel for prototype engine, which will be tested.

Automated tape for laying prepreg to composite structures was launched in 1985 and until last year was the only unit in Russia
