  • Ultrasonic Cleaning of Aircraft Components
    Many applications exist in the aircraft industry that can benefit from ultrasonic cleaning. Typical applications include brake parts, generator components, actuators, shuttle valves, filters, engine blades and vanes, aircraft wheels and bearings. Turbine blades and nozzle vanes from jet engines
  • Pit-Mounted Lift Becomes Correct Approach for Aircraft Component Manufacturer
    A large aircraft component manufacturer was searching for a safer and ergonomically correct approach to loading components into an autoclave while increasing efficiency and lowering costs. The answer was a custom built hydraulic pit mounted scissor lift, which also provided the benefit
  • Aging Aircraft (.pdf)
    Corrosion and corrosion related fatigue of structural components threatens the readiness of military aircraft and greatly increases the cost of maintenance of virtually all legacy aircraft. Annual costs exceeding one billion dollars are currently incurred for inspection and maintenance by the US
  • Aircraft Liquid Cooling
    Aircraft engineers today are charged with creating a More Electric Aircraft (MEA) with greater processing capabilities, while also minimizing the aircraft's weight and power consumption. With MEA, hydraulic and pneumatic systems are being replaced with electric systems. Combined with the addition
  • Case Studies Of Mitigation Of Fod, Fretting Fatigue, Corrosion Fatigue And SCC Damage By Low Plasticity Burnishing In Aircraft Structural Alloys (.pdf)
    , and. is performed on CNC machine tools. LPB. provides a means to extend the lives of both. new and legacy aircraft structural. components. Improving fatigue performance. by introducing deep stable layers of. compressive residual stress avoids the. generally prohibitive cost of modifying either. material or design
  • GapmanGen3 Electronic Gap Measurement System for Aircraft Applications
    Process control improvement drives new gap measurement techniques. Due to increased standardization of process improvement methods such as SPC and Six Sigma, aircraft structural component manufacturers from Alenia to Lockheed are adjusting output specifications from their measurement instrument
  • Aircraft Fasteners Keep Race Cars on the Track
    manufactures high-strength fasteners for aircraft engine and airframe components. Material selection was an important factor in choosing fasteners for the connecting rods, but Carrillo also needed to keep costs down. "We were a small company at the time, " says Sparks. "Our application could hardly
  • Laser Trackers Shrink Aircraft-Sized Manufacturing Problems (.pdf)
    Building aircraft has always been a struggle between the size of their components and the need to craft them carefully. More than any other device, airplanes epitomize the concept that "the devil is in the details" because in small errors lies the potential for great mischief such as increased drag
