Aviation and military components requires stringent quality requirements. ECCT has Olmar, Spain autoclave having a working diameter of 1m and working length of 1m with an operating temperature of 250oC and an operating pressure of 10barg for laminated composites and bonded assemblies for superior laminate consolidation.
COMPOSITE CURING OVEN
OUT-OF-AUTOCLAVE COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING
Expertise of ECCT is manufacturing of aviation products and components using Out-of-Autoclave technologies. ECCT uses manufacturing of aviation components by use of composite curing oven and by use of resin infusion technique.
COMPOSITE CURING OVEN
Aviation composites parts in ECCT will be manufactured by vacuum bag consolidation of carbon fibre prepregs and will be oven cured in controlled temperature and pressure. ECCT has composite curing oven of working area 6m (Length) x 2.5m (width) x 2.5m (height). Working temperature range is 250oC with close temperature control and uniformity.
Resin infusion will be used in ECCT as out-of-autoclave technique for producing aviation components. ECCT has Graco PR70 from USA and Vacmobile Modular 2S, New Zealand for resin infusion. PR70 has a variable ratio of 2.5:1 to 5:1 for accurate metering, mixing and dispensing medium to low viscosity resins for potting, gasketing, encapsulation and syringe filling. Heavy duty Vacmobile Modular 2S equipment will generate vacuum for the resin to impregnate reinforcement layers using vacuum infusion technology.
PREPREG AND FABRIC CUTTER
PREPREG AND FABRIC CUTTTER
ECCT has Zünd digital cutter G3 M-2500, Switzerland having a working area of 1330mm (width) and 2500mm (length) with a provision for 3 tool module slots and a wide range of cutting tools for cutting prepregs, woven carbon and glass fibre, honeycomb and foam cores . The purpose of Zünd digital cutter is for cutting of reinforcement layers to accurately and consistently cut composites reinforcements. Cutter optimises material usage with minimal waste and increases productivity.
ECCT has three LAP laser, USA projectors with green laser. Each individual laser projector has an operating range of 9m having an accuracy of ±0.1mm/m. The purpose of laser projector is to carry out accurate positioning and layer-by-layer placement of prepregs and woven fabric on mould for manufacturing aviation components and products.
ECCT has RADIAN (IFM+ADM), USA laser tracker having a working range of 20m radius with an accuracy of 10µm. Purpose of using RADIAN Portable 3D measuring Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) is to measure the master moulds and components made out of composites to manufacture highly accurate aviation products and components having close tolerances and profiles.
ECCT has Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC 8000) and Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMA 8000) from Perkin Elmer, USA. DSC is used for studying resin cure process. DMA is used for studying physics and mechanics of polymer material under high and low temperatures (-150°С to +600°С).
OLYMPUS SCANNING MACHINE
OLYMPUS SCANNING MACHINE
ECCT has Olympus OmniScan SX, USA for carrying out NDT control on composite structures.
Valdel Advanced Technologies in association with MSRUAS has set up the design center which has capabilities of end to end design. The team has worked on multiple projects & works with CAD, Fibersim, ESI Group, ANSYS & other softwares for the same. The Design Center is located within the Engineering Center so that activities from Design to Component & Tooling design to Prototype development go on seamlessly to give a quick turnaround for the customers The Design has a team of professionals with exprience in multiple projects in the following areas.
Design & Analysis
Valdel AT offers a range of design engineering and project management services that draw on our capability to offer end-to-end project delivery covering a comprehensive list of services.
DESIGN OF MECHANICAL SYSTEMS
At present, VEC is capable of undertaking FEED review for licensed / proprietary plants or units. This review will confirm the adequacy and consistency of basic engineering provided by Licensor in the FEED package, for detail engineering and procurement activities to begin. For public domain plants or units (“open art” plants or units), VEC is capable of developing FEED in-house, e.g. for crude stabilization, gas distribution network, utilities and off-sites as well as general civil work.
FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
VEC executes detailed engineering for a variety of projects mainly in the field of oil and gas. The work is carried out in 2D or 3D platform as per the client requirement. The activities performed comprise design calculations and analysis, and preparation of data sheets, fabrication drawings, equipment layouts, piping general arrangements, earthing and lighting layouts, area classification drawings, instrumentation system architecture, logic diagrams, loop diagrams, technical specifications, piping isometrics, MTO’s. etc. 3D model is delivered at the end of the project. VEC also conducts 3D model review at different stages of a project, with participation by EPC contractor, client / PMC and process licensor if any. VEC has implemented a state-of-the-art Electronic Document Management System through which movement of documents between VEC and external agencies, and within VEC are very efficiently managed during the course of engineering.
KINEMATIC & DYNAMIC ANALYSIS
VEC’s project management services consist of coordination of the engineering activities leading to the timely execution of a project in line with terms of the contract to the client’s satisfaction. The talented pool of the engineering personnel combined with their experience is a major strength which VEC utilizes in carrying out all the activities of the project effectively. The efforts of the various departments are coordinated together in a logical and a systematic pattern resulting in successful completion of the project.
