The landing gear strut retracts the landing gear into the fuselage after take-off and extends and locks it in position prior to landing. Titanium alloys are frequently used in its construction to enable it to withstand the enormous forces it is exposed to during take-off and landing. The demanding machining characteristics of these alloys, together with the complex structures in the component, make the machining process anything but easy.
