The landing gear is a critical system of any aircraft. The component’s design and materials require minimum weight to maximize fuel efficiency, high performance and longevity, while still needing to absorb the tremendous forces placed on it when in use. DIAEDGE Cutting Tools' quality design and precision are developed
to meet the requirements and demand of landing gear components by providing machining solutions for titanium (Ti) alloys and challenging geometries.
Axle beams are one of the most significant components of the landing gear systems. Due to their large size – up to 25 feet – they are often slow to machine with long cycle times. DIAEDGE Cutting Tools are well-designed to meet these manufacturing conditions by offering solutions for complex geometries for machining titanium (Ti) and alloy steel, while reducing cycle time and improving efficiencies.
When it comes to machining landing gear axle beam components, the DIAEDGE DSA carbide drill is the best choice. Unique TRI-cooling Technology® offers specific hole geometry to increase the coolant flow rate to reduce cutting heat and prevent the generation of work-hardening of tough titanium (Ti) alloys and Inconel® materials.
