S. S. White Technologies hydraulically powered flexible rotary shafts activate thrust reverser actuation systems On Pratt & Whitney (IAE) V2500 turbofan engines that just passed 250 million flight hours of service
Wednesday, 11 August 2021

S.S. White Technologies, the leading provider of flexible rotary shafts for the aerospace industry is the supplier of flexible shafts that transmit power to activate the critical Collins Aerospace Thrust Reverser Actuation Systems (TRAS) on the Pratt & Whitney (IAE) V2500 turbofan engines that just passed 250 million flight hours of service.

S.S. White provides a set of hydraulically activated flexible rotary shafts per IAE V2500 that transfer power and enable safe operation of the Collins Aerospace TRAS during flight and deployment of the TRAS during landing.

In addition, all aerospace flexible shaft products are designed to one of the industry's highest performance criteria by utilizing a unique computer modeling software program developed by S.S. White called PERFLEXION. This program allows the design engineers to more fully model the behavioral characteristics of the wire bundles within the shaft core and arrive at an optimum product that provides maximum bending flexibility and torsion strength while allowing minimal torsion deflection with up to a 30 percent improvement above current industry standards.
