Kanfit Ltd., Israel, has successfully completed the initial Nadcap Audit for Composites (AC7118 Rev D- Audit criteria for composites, including AC7122-P-Audit Criteria for Non Metallic Part Manufacturers Captive Laboratories) with only one major and two minor Non-Conformance Reports (NCRs) identified. Kanfit is already Nadcap accredited for in-house heat treating and chemical processing. Kanfit underwent the Nadcap audit for the production of prepreg parts in autoclave (NC Ply cutting, cure-autoclave), out-of-autoclave (cure-oven), and for performing mechanical and physical testing (process controls).

“It has been only two years since we began building our autoclave facility and only one year since we began production, so this is a major achievement of which we are extremely proud. It demonstrates our high level of preparedness in carrying out all activation processes in a well-planned manner,” said Shai Fine, General Manager of Kanfit. "This is just the beginning. We are already working on the next steps to expand our Nadcap processes to include RTM.”

In addition to Kanfit’s autoclave manufacturing capabilities, the company recently added 3D additive manufacturing and is also developing other production technologies, including automated fiber placement (AFP) and robotic filament winding of closed frames.
