 Press Releases

  • Kanfit, a leading manufacturer of assemblies and subassemblies for the aerospace industry, has accepted delivery of an Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) robotic system from Ingersoll Machine Tools. The system will be used to develop and manufacture complex composite structures made from carbon fibers that until now have traditionally been made using hand layup or, due to their extreme complexity, were not possible to manufacture at all.

    The new AFP robotic system is the first of its kind in Israel and is being introduced into the company for research and development purposes. Initially, Kanfit will partner in this venture with Israel’s aerospace and defense industry leaders, and there are plans to expand the project to include partners from other industrial sectors outside of aerospace. In short we will establish an Israel Center of Excellence for AFP at Kanfit.

    “Kanfit has always been an early pioneer in adopting and mastering new technologies,” said Shai Fine, General Manager of Kanfit Ltd. “The AFP robotic system is essential to the company’s strategy to expand its design-to-build capabilities, and is a further step in strengthening our position as a leading company for engineering and manufacturing composite parts for the aerospace industry. We are certain that the AFP system will increase our company’s standing in the local as well as in the international arena.”

    The AFP machine is comprised of a robotic arm for rapid placement of up to eight tows of one-quarter inch composite fibers. The goal is to design and manufacture lightweight complex structures in a much shorter amount of time, with reduced material waste.

    Following installation, the AFP system will undergo factory acceptance testing (FAT). Kanfit engineers returned from intensive training at Ingersoll’s headquarters in Rockford, IL, where the AFP robot underwent Pre-Acceptance Testing (PAT).


 Products

  • Hybrid Flight Deck Structures
    Kanfit offers customers a one-stop-shop, full service turnkey solution. This hybrid business jet flight deck structure was manufactured from spec / drawing/ 3D model to serial production....

  • Kanfit’s unique hybrid capabilities enable the design and manufacturing of cockpit structures made from composite materials such as carbon epoxy and glass phenolic prepregs and metals such as sheet metal and machined aluminum. The parts are assembled together into a complete mechanical structure that seamlessly interfaces with the airframe and the cockpit’s electronic systems. The complete assembly can be delivered to the customer, ready-to-install.  All manufacturing processes, including NDT, laboratory tests, painting and assembly are performed in-house. Our wide range of products for the cockpit include pedestals, instrument panels, glare shields, etc., for commercial and business jets, fighter aircraft and helicopters. Kanfit parts are manufactured according to customer requirements.

  • Chaff and Flare Magazines
    Kanfit manufactures chaff and flare magazines with RTM composite technology. Products are manufactured in one-shot, with the metallic inserts embedded into the component and in one piece for improved accuracy, durability & reproducibility....

  • Kanfit chaff and flare magazines are produced by RTM. This process improves magazine accuracy, extends durability and enhances reproducibility. There are zero failure points because there are no seams, bonding, assemblies, etc. Produced in one piece and in one shot with the metallic inserts embedded into the component, they are significantly lighter in weight than those made from metal. Test results for ALE-47 CMDS magazines, in which 10 full rounds of 5 x 6 flares (270 in total) were sequentially fired, show that Kanfit's magazines remain as durable and robust as the first time they were f ired. Kanfit has manufactured over 9,000 chaff and flare magazines for use by national air forces around the world without a single manufacturing failure ever reported. Kanfit manufactures chaff and flare magazines for military and civil aircraft (fixed wing and rotary). They are designed according to customer specifications.
