HEATCON Composite Systems (Seattle, Wash.) recently shipped a 30-ft/9.2m RepairClave to Bell Helicopter Textron (Ft. Worth, Texas) for use in the repair of helicopter blades. The repair procedure on certain blades calls for pressure in excess of that which can be achieved using vacuum alone. The HEATCON RepairClave reportedly offers a viable alternative to an autoclave cure, with substantial cost savings, for what were previously considered “out-of-capability” blade repairs.
