Project: Aerospace Case Study

Landing Gear Housing
  • Prototype manufacture

  • Assembly process development

High-Tech Engineering were involved in the initial prototype stages for producing a Motor Housing for a large commercial aircraft.

The component was assessed and issues raised concerning distortion during manufacture due to a large ammount of metal removal and also after final machining due to the insertion of a bearing liner.

To overcome these manufacturing issues in order to enable a sustainable method for production several prototypes were made.

Cost effective parts were then produced and a specific process for heating up the finished component to insert a frozen liner developed.

Several batches were then made to prove the process was sustainable before production quantities could be manufactured in a low cost location.
