Aircraft Mechanical Actuators
Mechanical Actuators are used as a mechanism to 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 larger system which includes a power drive, mechanical interconnects, and feedback devices to control the motion of multiple devices.
Moog is the market leader in mechanical actuation products and systems for aircraft. We supply solutions for the following applications:
- Maneuvering Leading Edge
- Slat/Flap Drives
- Weapons Bay Door Drive
- Wingfold, Bladefold and Cargo Door
