Executive Summary:

HD provided detailed design services to Triumph Actuation Systems to deliver an actuation gearbox system that had been designed for manufacture from the get-go.


TAS were able to deliver a solution to their own client that had a significant reduction in weight and met additional performance requirements. The solution was designed for manufacture from the beginning, and also included FEA and mechanical engineering calculations. Extensive tests were carried out by TAS on HD’s design, all of which passed without issue before proceeding to vibration and climatic testing, prior to being fitted to aircraft.

Triumph selected HD from previous experience of their test design capability. They rose to the challenge of our schedule and technical requirements producing a first-class design. In addition, they worked closely to our methods and processes so it was like having an extended design team. – Triumph
