Choosing ERIKS to supply your new gearbox — or to maintain or repair an existing gearbox — can offer real savings.
Today’s machine builders confront a new era of risks, as globalisation increases competition and the internet rapidly disseminates information about products and markets. The highest priority for designers of performance-driven machinery is to reduce the various risks confronted across the machine design, development and maintenance lifecycle.
This paper from Cedrat Technologies is devoted to the presentation of adaptive impact absorbers applied as aircraft landing gears. The presented work discusses a possibility of utilisation of active dampers based on piezo-actuators and magnetorheological fluids (MRF) as the actuator for the proposed system. Control issues of an impact absorption system are widely presented.
Analytical methodology remains the most important daily work tool of motor designers. The use of analytical tools is important because it reduces calculation time — especially during optimisation. However, there are some important phenomena that are not always evaluated, particularly when ECM (equivalent circuit models) are involved. For these, numerical methods derive the best results. The use of finite element analysis is very important because it provides detailed simulation and ...
This white paper from Cedrat Technologies presents a piezo-actuation chain suitable for aeronautical applications.
