New manufacturing technology of SiliFlex silicone molds has been developed

To meet special requirements of the European certification norms according to which at injection of simulated hailstones into an engine, a ballistic body velocity shall be min. 205 m/s, a specially profiled composite material barrel for injection of simulated hailstones has been designed and manufactured at SE Ivchenko-Progress. This new device made it possible to attain a ballistic body velocity of more than 225 m/s at the inlet to the engine.
