Landing gear is equipment that supports the aircraft’s airframe, which consists of wheels and shock absorbers.
The materials used for the landing gear are required to be rigid for impact during landing and lightweight to improve fuel efficiency.
Typical materials for landing gear are titanium alloys, which have excellent specific strength and excellent corrosion resistance, and special precipitation-hardened stainless steel, which has superior toughness, strength, and scientific stability.
These materials are extremely difficult in terms of machining and are bottlenecks at many machine shops.
Tungaloy offers the optimum cutting-edge shape to reduce cutting resistance and provides effective solutions for difficult to cut materials.
