Liebherr-Aerospace wins another contract for the Boeing 777X

Boeing Commercial Airplanes has awarded Liebherr-Aerospace another contract for the Boeing 777X: the system supplier will deliver two components – the power drive unit and the hydraulic motor – for the leading edge actuation system of the new wide-body aircraft. Relying on its experience in high-lift systems, and especially in gearboxes and hydraulic motors for long-range commercial aircraft, Liebherr-Aerospace will design a power drive unit and a hydraulic motor that are compact, extremely reliable and light in weight. These two components will provide the mechanical power to drive the aircraft’s leading edge actuation system. Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), Liebherr’s worldwide center of excellence for flight control and landing gear systems will be in charge of developing and manufacturing the power drive unit and the hydraulic motor, and also servicing both components in the future. The new contract award came in addition to components for the 777X folding wing tip system, more precisely the fold subsystem, the latch pin actuator and the secondary lock actuator, which Boeing entrusted Liebherr with earlier this year.
