Case Study

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

Product: Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuator

 

Challenge:

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.

Solution:

TA Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuator (SHA) model S08C32-07 rated for up to 14,000 lbf (62.3kN) with 6-inch (152 mm) stroke was selected based on the applications’ force and position requirements. The SHA supplied was an all-in-one actuator solution with servo motor, drive, and actuator that was factory tuned and drop in ready.

Case Study

Application: Driveshaft Vibration Damper Insertion Assembly Press

Product: Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuator

 

Challenge:

Tier 1 automotive supplier in Michigan was experiencing performance issues and premature failure/short life with their existing Electro-Mechanical – Roller Screw type actuator solution. The repeated load cycle was causing accelerated localized wear of the roller screw. In addition, the variation in friction between damper and driveshaft tube components was causing force spikes and shock loads further damaging the roller screw actuators.

To replace the existing Roller Screw type actuator, the supplier would need high force and precision control in a compact space envelope. Traditional hydraulic system approach and a larger electro-mechanical actuator were considered to replace the system. However, the hydraulic system occupied too much floor space and did not provide accurate control. The larger electro-mechanical actuators grew in footprint considerably and cost was prohibitive.

Solution:

48in Axle Tube Press SHAThe Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuator model # SHA S13C20-31 with 40-inch stroke was selected based on force and speed requirements. The solution was an all-in-one system with servo motor, drive, and actuator that was drop in ready.

In addition, the unit was provided with internal feedback device to provide accurate positioning without possible interference when pressing into long drive shafts.

The Kyntronics SHA provided the high force required in a compact space envelope. The SHA combines the power of hydraulics with the precision of servo control resulting in a more-reliable solution for this customer while providing the position and force accuracy for repeatable quality from this assembly process.

The SHA will provide long maintenance-free operation as the SHA is a closed system with no hoses/no leaks and robust seals (60 million inches of travel).
