Kanfit has announced that it has completed its Nadcap audit for composites as well as a renewed certification for heat treatment.
Aerospace engineering company Kanfit achieved Nadcap accreditation for core processing (CP) and liquid resin processing (LRP) and received recertification for prepreg/adhesive bonding/resin film infusion and process control testing. Accreditations for LRP authorises Kanfit’s resin transfer mould (RTM) process according to the requirements of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI).
Additionally, Kanfit developed a new RTM process and specification for complex aerospace products. The company reports that this specification has been adopted by a prominent aerospace industry leader, which has incorporated it into its process specification library.
In addition to autoclave manufacturing capabilities, Kanfit recently added 3D additive manufacturing and is also developing other production technologies, including automated fibre placement (AFP) and robotic filament winding of closed frames.
