S.S. White Technologies, provider of flexible rotary shafts for the aerospace industry, is the supplier of flexible shafts that transmit power to activate the critical Collins Aerospace Thrust Reverser Actuation Systems (TRAS) on the Pratt & Whitney (IAE) V2500 turbofan engines that just passed 250 million flight hours of service.
S.S. White provides a set of hydraulically activated flexible rotary shafts per IAE V2500 that transfer power and enable safe operation of the Collins Aerospace TRAS during flight and deployment of the TRAS during landing.
In addition, all aerospace flexible shaft products are designed to one of the industry’s highest performance criteria using S.S. White’s PERFLEXION computer modeling software program. This program allows design engineers to model the behavioral characteristics of the wire bundles more fully within the shaft core and arrive at an optimum product that provides maximum bending flexibility and torsion strength while allowing minimal torsion deflection with up to a 30% improvement above current industry standards.
