HAL CMD, R Madhavan launched the ‘Metal Cutting for Titanium Bulkhead of AMCA aircraft’ as part of technology development at Aircraft Manufacturing Division, Nashik in the presence of Dr. A K Ghosh, PD(AMCA) ADA, senior officers from DMRL, ADA and other Government agencies.
Bulkheads are a critical structure that is entirely one piece made of titanium but usually Bulkheads before going into aircraft are ground tests in the durability testing to test its structural limits so that issues and corrective actions can be identified before it enters mass production.
Ground-testing of the Bulkheads is crucial to achieving the intended service life of the aircraft and also weight management of the aircraft.
