GARDN II Projects (2014-2019)

Hydroformed Cross Tubes for Helicopter Skid Type Landing Gear

BHTC-21

 

Objectives:

Reduce weight and assembly costs through an enhanced methodology for hydroforming aerospace tubular products.

The developed technology will enable the manufacturing of high-strength, corrosion-resistant and environmentally friendly landing-gear components and provide superior-quality products at a lower life-cycle cost.

The goal of the project is to mature the technology and expand the limits in designing, manufacturing and testing full-scale landing-gear components to reduce weight, drag, cost and lead-time.  This project aims also at eliminating the chemical milling manufacturing process and possibly the shot peening process, both of which are used to manufacture current landing-gear cross tubes.

Duration:

2 years
