Trelleborg Unveils Unique Primary Flight Control Seal Test Bench at FIA2016
Located in the HA Traub Technical Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana in the U.S., this test equipment can uniquely offer a rapid multi-million cycle testing capability, considerably shortening the proving time of flight control applications.
The Flight Control Seal Test Bench will globally support designers in the evaluation of piston and rod seal designs or entire packages before hardware is available. It can test conditions that are either difficult or expensive to replicate in the real world, improving the quality of the system early in the design stage, reducing the number of errors found later and building customer confidence in seal performance.
Innovation leader in aerospace
Gregory Jones, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions General Manager, Aerospace Hub Americas (AHA), says: “Trelleborg Sealing Solutions continues to be the innovation leader in sealing solutions for aerospace. The Primary Flight Control Seal Test Bench is the only system available in the world that tests either rod or piston hydraulic seals under extreme environmental and motion conditions combined with a multi-million cycle capability.”
