Beaver Aerospace & Defense, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and global leader in the design and manufacturing of a broad-range of custom ball screws and electromechanical actuation systems, has been selected to provide high-performance inertial separator actuators for the new DAHER-SOCATA TBM 900 Aircraft. Beaver has designed, manufactured and certified the new actuator to achieve higher reliability and load capacity for the TBM 900, which is receiving numerous enhancements from the French manufacturer. The aircraft was unveiled on March 12, 2014 at a ceremony in France, and the first three aircraft are scheduled to be delivered to customers today (March 20).

The TBM 900 is a high-performance business aircraft, powered by a single Pratt & Whitney PT6 series 850 horsepower (HP) turboprop engine. Certified up to 31,000 feet, its maximum range is more than 1730 nautical miles (Nm) and its maximum speed can reach 330 knots (or 611 km/h).

“Beaver's innovative electromechanical actuators offer unmatched performance and reliability,” said Ben Kearns, General Manager at Beaver Aerospace & Defense. “We are proud to partner with the engineers at DAHER-SOCATA on this exciting project.”

Beaver's award-winning ball screws, electromechanical actuators, ball splines and gears can fit virtually any application, and are known throughout the industry for their reliable quality, precision and performance.
