Aircraft Mechanical Actuation

Mechanical Actuators translate mechanical motion (often rotary) into linear motion or, with the help of gearing, into rotary motion at a different speed.  These actuators are typically part of a more extensive system which includes a power drive, mechanical interconnects, and feedback devices to control the motion of multiple devices.

Moog has been a leading supplier of mechanical actuators for more than 50 years.  Over time, we have assembled a broad portfolio of products and applied the technology to diverse applications.  While most of our heritage was derived from mission-critical aerospace, the core technology has been successfully applied in applications that require high performance and reliability.
