LANDING GEAR COMPONENTS
RISING TO THE CHALLENGE
The aerospace industry faces many challenges, with a primary focus on reducing weight and increasing fuel efficiency. By 2020, the industry has committed to achieving four distinct milestones.
- 50% reduction of CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions per passenger per kilometer
- 50% reduction in perceived aircraft noise
- 80% reduction in N2O (Nitrous Oxide) emissions
- Implementation of a greener aircraft life cycle
These challenges come even as the world experiences continued growth in demand for air travel and higher aircraft build rates. Technology will play a key role in meeting these environmental goals.
Today, metallurgists, chemists and plastics engineers work constantly to develop the materials of the future. Such efforts are vital, as a substantial majority of environmental improvements in aircraft will derive from weight reduction.
New aircraft will feature more efficient engines with more advanced components made from new lighter, stronger materials for better combustion and airflow. Airframe structures will be made of even lighter composites or materials such as aluminum lithium. Landing gear will be made from new, stronger titanium alloys. All of these developments will test manufacturers’ abilities, as they adapt to working with different, more difficult materials.
At Seco, we partner with customers, research institutes, universities and other aerospace organizations to fully understand the challenges aerospace manufacturers face and develop the solutions to overcome them. Our own R&D focuses on the advanced technologies, tools, strategies and component solutions that will drive and evolve your processes.
As the aerospace industry continues to innovate towards more efficient and environmentally friendly performance, Seco will be there to help you meet and overcome the resulting challenges to your operations.
