  • As part of its strategy to provide turnkey, one stop shop services, Kanfit now offers in-house Non-Destructive Tests (NDT) and ultrasonic inspections for the detection of defects and irregularities on composite components. Kanfit is a leading manufacturer of primary and detailed parts, sub-assemblies and ready to mount assemblies made from composite and metals for aerospace and medical device applications. The addition of Non-Destructive Test services to its expert engineering and manufacturing capabilities will help support production processes, the reduction of costs and lead times, as well as quality control.

    After a comprehensive assessment of customer needs, Kanfit made a decision to purchase two Olympus instruments for its NDT laboratory – an EPOCH 650 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector for laminated structures and a BondMaster 600 for nondestructive bond testing for sandwich structures. Following 18 months of intensive and rigorous training, Kanfit operators were Level II certified and has hired a Level III expert who will be responsible for determining inspection procedures.

    "This is another step in solidifying our position as a leading one-stop-shop, A to Z solution provider meeting the highest international standards for our aerospace customers," explained Kanfit General Manager Shai Fine. "By offering NDT and UI services, there is no longer a need to send the parts and structures we manufacture to a third party to be tested – a costly and time consuming process. Kanfit will be more effective in ensuring that its products are reliable and safe."

    Kanfit provides a wide-range of high quality services to the aerospace industry, including designing, manufacturing and testing products. In addition to non-destructive tests, Kanfit maintains fully equipped laboratories for conducting mechanical, physical and chemical tests on composite and metal products manufactured by the company.

  • Chaff and Flare Magazines
    Kanfit manufactures chaff and flare magazines using RTM technology...

  • Kanfit manufactures chaff and flare magazines with RTM, which improves magazine accuracy, extends durability and enhances reproducibility. Using this technology, Kanfit is able to manufacture magazines that are significantly lighter in weight than those made from metal. Kanfit’s chaff and flare magazines are produced in one-shot, with the metallic inserts embedded into the component, and in one piece. This ensures zero failure points because there are no seams, bonding, assemblies, etc. Components are delivered ready-to-mount directly to the customer. Since its establishment in 1986, Kanfit has manufactured more than 7,000 chaff and flare magazines (including RR-170, RR-180, M206, MJU-7, and more) for use by national air forces around the world. Our record speaks for itself—not a single manufacturing failure has ever been reported. According to customer feedback, Kanfit’s chaff and flares provide 100% reliability and offers the highest level of performance. Tests results for ALE-47 CMDS magazines, in which ten full rounds of 5 x 6 flares were sequentially fired, show that Kanfit’s magazines remained as durable and robust as when first fired. Kanfit’s products comply with United States military testing standards MIL-STD-810, EMI/RFI, MIL-STD-461F.
