AVIATION - EXTREME TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE
A commercial aircraft experiences temperature variations between 30°C at startup and down to -60°C at cruising altitude. This poses special requirements for use of materials, connections and components in aircraft construction. R+W offers solutions for these extreme temperature ranges in the form of welded, torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings. The demands for quality placed on driveline components, which compensate for shaft misalignment between the control motor and the control system, are high, including certification of the welding process, product traceability, functional testing and many other quality controls.
Over the years, R+W products have proven their value among leading aircraft manufacturers in areas where temperature and humidity have the greatest impact. This is why R+W America has achieved AS9120 quality certification for the distribution of R+W precision couplings in the United States.
