Wooden plugs inspected

Construction of wooden plugs for FRP production of the diffusers and contraction section has recently been completed.

Tunnel Technologies engineers, in collaboration with Creaform engineers, conducted a laser inspection of these plugs to detect even the smallest deviations in their shape, which can affect wind tunnel efficiency.

The production facility will finish the plugs according to the inspection reports, in order to achieve the highest possible level of precision.
