Russian Helicopters and Eaton Announce Launch of Licensed Production of Teflon Hose in Russia

Eaton’s Teflon hose is being produced at the National Helicopter R&D Centre in Tomilino, near Moscow.

Yury Lebedev, head of aerospace projects for Eaton in Russia, said: “Eaton has certified production in the Moscow region, and the hose line has also undergone certification to the international aerospace standard AS 9100. Special equipment has been installed in a separate production workshop at the National Helicopter R&D Centre and is being used to produce flexible pipes using our technology. Different types of piping for other models of Russian-made helicopters could be created in the next few years."

Eaton and Russian Helicopters signed an agreement on cooperation at the Le Bourget air show in Paris in 2009.
