S.S. White flexible rotary shafts are featured on Dassault Falcon 6X CIRCOR Bodet wheel speed transducers as first production wide-body business jet arrives in US for type's year-end service entry
Saturday, 12 February 2022

S. S. White Technologies, the leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of flexible rotary shafts for the aerospace industry, provides flexible shafts to CIRCOR Bodet wheel speed transducers (WSTs) utilised on the Dassault Falcon 6X. S.S. White flexible rotary shafts help insure the proper measurement of the aircraft's wheel's rotational speed for precise braking control during landing.

S.S. White flexible shafts are precisely designed, manufactured and tested to tolerate misalignment of the installation while proving a 'constant' torsional stiffness (deflection) throughout each wheel revolution. The shafts hysteresis characteristics are balanced (equal within defined limits) in both clockwise and counter clockwise directions. In addition to the Dassault Falcon 6X, CIRCOR's WSTs fitted with S.S. White flexible rotary shafts are operating on most modern business jets built in the USA and Europe.

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