The infusion technology of Russian firm JSC AeroComposit for wing manufacture of the MC-21 aircraft has won the innovative solutions award at the JEC World – 2018 event in Paris, the world’s leading composite technology show.
JSC AeroComposit won the award on March 7 in the Aerospace Industry category, a press release from Russia’s Irkut Corp, which assembles the MC-21 airliner aircraft said.
The main criteria for selection in the competition were the technical superiority of the proposed composite solution (material, technology), originality, market potential and integrity of the supply chain.
The technology of Russian specialists enabled production of a high-aspect wing with new generation supercritical contour for MC-21 aircraft. The wing design increases the aerodynamic quality of the aircraft in cruise flight and gives a noticeable fuel economy. Long-length wing panels are made by automatic dry carbon filling machines.
The new technology of AeroComposite was recognized as the best project of the JEC Innovation Awards 2018 in accordance with the results of the peoples vote.
