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.
