The landing gear of an aircraft has to bear the total weight of the aircraft, its freight and its passengers. It must therefore absorb and dissipate all the dynamic forces, shocks and loads exerted on it, particularly when taxiing and landing. The main cylinder is the focal point of the landing gear. This heavily loaded component is generally constructed from titanium or high-alloy steels. However, it is not just the materials that are demanding; the components themselves are extremely complex. In addition to the tool technology, an optimum machining strategy is also needed.
Just as well that we already have suitable solutions and concepts available for contour milling, turning and drilling.
