Success in Harsh Environments

The Challenge:

The conventional means of operating landing gear, door uplocks and valves has been through the use of hydraulic rams. This paradigm is shifting in pursuit of a smarter, cleaner and reduced maintenance solution. Although electromechanical actuators are the clear alternative, they must perform with a high level of reliability in extreme environments. Temperature, humidity, shock, vibration and severe levels of electromagnetic effects are all factors that raised the bar beyond previous standards.

 

The Solution:

Whippany Actuation Systems overcame these obstacles. Through an open and collaborative effort with our business partners, we came to fully understand the harsh environment our products were experiencing. To counter these factors, we devised innovative solutions for moisture management, sealing, conformal coating, EME protection, corrosion protection, and shock and vibration isolation.
