Detailed studies and many years of collaboration with numerous customers in the aerospace industry, as well as leading institutions and universities, have made us a recognised provider of reliable tooling solutions for these sophisticated industry sectors. Instead of machining single components, we focus on the complete machining of various aeroplane components. We do not just sell products, but rather concentrate ourselves on the comprehensive optimisation of production processes. To this end, selection of the right insert, the correct combination of tools and their optimal application plays a critical part.
High-performance machining of complex landing gear components
Precision landing: with CERATIZIT, there’s always the right solution for your landing gear components
The landing gear, one of the larger components of the aircraft, serves to manoeuvre during take-off, landing and taxiing. In its supporting parts, the landing gear holds the entire weight of the aircraft with passengers and freight on the ground. This means it has to absorb and transfer all the dynamic forces, shock and stress into the ground, especially when landing.
For these enormous, volume-specific types of stress there are two materials which may be employed: super high-strength steels and titanium alloys, with the alloy proportion steadily increasing.
The landing gear consists of a variety of individual parts, which are machined with turning, drilling and milling operations: for example, this is how holes become incorporated and how pockets, dowel holes and location faces are produced.
