Ka-226T is the World’s First Modular Helicopter

Ka-226T

Moscow. Russia has developed the world’s first modular helicopter using 3D digital technologies. The Ka-226T, a light helicopter, is the first machine designed and developed using digital technologies, and its big advantage is that its designs can be accessed by any user any time to monitor and control its production at every stage.

P_20171129_134416Experts regard it as a big achievement by the Russian Helicopters, which said that all new modes from now on will be developed in virtual space and built using paperless, digital manufacturing. That will also facilitate incorporation of any design changes and modification in future if required.

Russian Helicopters is part of the Rostec State Corporation.

The development of Ka-226, “completely created by using digital technologies,” has become a pilot project on the creation and production of helicopters through information technology. Being modular, its maintenance will be much easier for any user, who will also have the “ability to contact the developer for discussing models in relation to the specificity of production.”

“In the future, the single system will allow all project participants to monitor and control the production of helicopters at every stage,” the company said in a statement, adding: Digital manufacturing will greatly simplify the development of new modifications as well as upgrades and design changes according to the customer’s requirements. All new models and modifications of existing helicopters will be created on the same principle.

P_20171129_134453Said Mr Andrey Boginsky, General Director of Russian Helicopters: “Project Ka-226T is the first experience for holding enterprises to create a new helicopter modification by using only software. The digitalization has reduced the machine development time, and, through the creation of 3D models, has improved accuracy of the component parts and units of the helicopter development. That has helped to create a modern and high quality machine, cumulative performance and other characteristics which (are) substantially superior to Western counterparts.”

Notably, the developer of the helicopter, JSC Kamov, has prepared a full set of the design documentation, including digital models of parts and assemblies, as well as three-dimensional models of completed helicopters.

Said a company statement: At the moment, within the project implementation, the design bureau and serial production at the Ulan-Ude aviation plant received a single information system with an online connection. Thus, the company has not only a 24-hour access to the relevant design documents, but also an ability to contact the developer for discussing models in relation to the specificity of production. In the future the single system will allow all project participants to monitor and control the production of helicopters at every stage.
