08 March 2011

North Coast Composites has been chosen by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to produce the G250 Rudder using the Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) process, in a contract valued at $6 million.

The G250 Rudder integrates lightning strike protection, net-moulded ribs, spars and rudder skins into a co-molded, single-piece structure. North Coast Composites say that this complex part is the first of its kind and could only be accomplished by utilizing specially designed RTM tooling and a streamlined, efficient manufacturing process.
