Tank bending

, , Machine utilisée :

AEDS Technologie has built more than 2500 ejectable tanks over the last 25 years, currently in use on all Dassault fighter aircraft.
Rafale was the first programme for which AEDS Technologie demonstrated the capacity to develop the complete package (design, qualification, prototyping, series production).

Length 2 m
Thickness 4 mm

 Rolling machine RCS 130-20 Electronic console
> Product Rafale tanks
> Requirements Cones, Electronic cone rolling, precision, reliability, no lamination

Benefits :
The rolling of honeycomb structure is very difficult. The 3 rollers type RCS (with 3 motorized rollers) are the only ones able to bend this material without damaging it.
Picot machines are very popular in aeronautics (Airbus, Safran, …) for their performance as well as their reliability. It is important to be able to work on machines where the failure rate is almost zero.
