It was created jointly by PJSC Yakovlev and CJSC AeroComposite
At MSTU. Bauman, a Russian robot laying dry carbon fiber was accepted. This machine will be used to create composite structural elements of the MS-21 aircraft, primarily the wing. The robot is a joint development of PJSC Yakovlev and CJSC AeroComposite.
“ This is an automatic head that allows you to lay out the tape and laser weld it. Plus, it has its own software, its own mathematics that allows it all to work, and a human-machine interface. The main thing is that it allows us to implement those technological processes that are written down in the design documentation: automatic laying out of dry carbon tape from which we make our product – these are, first of all, panels, wing spars and panels for the center section. Its functional content is exactly the same as what we had with imported equipment ,” said Anatoly Gaidansky, CEO of AeroComposite CJSC.
Let us recall that earlier Andrei Yashutin, head of the design bureau of the Engineering Center of PJSC Yakovlev, spoke about the features of the MS-21 advanced wing and why the wing is covered with a thin copper mesh. Delivery of the first MS-21 commercial airliners to airlines is planned for 2024, commercial operation of these aircraft will begin in 2025.
