Compression Molded Hydraulic Clamp Block Assemblies for the Aerospace Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
For use on commercial airplanes, these featured clamp blocks were value engineered to reduce significant weight of the aircraft. Made from a variety of components, including titanium screws, locking and standard washers, EPDM rubber (BMS 1-50), and carbon fiber composite channels and spacer tubes, the EPDM rubber was molded and cleaned before assembly.
Each of the screws, washers, channels, and spacer tubes were purchased to adhere to strict customer specifications, and then assembled with the EPDM rubber block.
As a result of the unique combination of rubber, screws, washers, channels, and spacer tubes, the clamp block assemblies were appropriate for use in almost any aircraft application, including hydraulic immersed and fuel pod locations. In addition to reducing the weight of the aircraft, the design of the assemblies reduced FOD and increased the speed and efficiency of installation.
