Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuator (SHA) for Aircraft Damper Test Machine

Application: F-18 Hornet Tail Hook Damper Test Stand

Product: S-Model 120 Series


A US-based Aerospace/Defense Test Equipment Engineering and Manufacturing Co. was awarded a project involving a challenging application to test F-18 Tail Hook Dampers that required applying a precise force over a wide force range (100 lbf - 12,000 lbf). In addition, the application required that the test stand be portable and have a smaller footprint than what was typically used in conventional test equipment of this type.
