Landing Gear Parts & Assemblies for the Aerospace & Defense Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
A customer in the aerospace industry contracted Southern Precision Machining to manufacture the landing gear link system shown here. These highly detailed structural parts were to be used on the landing gear of a 767, and would take extensive machining capabilities to complete. SPM was up to the challenge, expertly machining titanium 6AL4V to the specified configurations. Utilizing advanced CNC machining systems, the components were machined to tolerances as close as of ±0.0005” which was required for the bearing bores. The part was subjected to a titanium anodizing process for corrosion and wear resistance. CMM Validation testing was performed to ensure the necessary accuracy and quality standards were met.
Overall dimensions for the completed part were 4” x 6” x 10”. Turnaround time for this project was 18 weeks, with 8 units shipped annually to the customer.
