The National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Bangalore has been engaged in the research of autoclaves for the past three decades and has pioneered their development and usage in India for aerospace/aircraft structural applications. The autoclaves at NAL have played a significant role in all the major national aircraft / aerospace programs. The largest aerospace autoclave in India (working size of 4.4m diameter and 9.0 m length) has been successfully commissioned at NAL. This paper gives the technological challenges faced and innovative concepts that were introduced in these autoclaves.
