Wireless torque sensors ensure airliners’ safety

Wireless torque sensors ensure airliners’ safety
The aerospace sector is renowned for its safety standards and a whole industry has grown up to provide equipment and services for testing aircraft and their subsystems. Airliners are subject to tremendous loads as they land and take off, from the touchdown of the undercarriage, to the back-thrust of the jet engines as they slow the aircraft on the runway and the wind pressure on the flaps and flight control surfaces when they are lowered to provide air-braking.

3D printing the future of aircraft

3D printing the future of aircraft
First conceived in the late 1980s, it’s only in recent years that 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has really taken flight. Additive manufacturing is used in daily life, but developments are making it more accessible for other industries to use the technology, including aviation. Here, Benjamin Stafford, materials science expert at materials search engine Matmatch, explores the future relationship of aviation and additive manufacturing.

Structural adhesive for construction in aircraft interiors

Structural adhesive for construction in aircraft interiors
Demand for commercial aircraft is booming worldwide. The new flame-retardant structural adhesive, DELO-DUOPOX AB8162, makes production faster. No other industry relies as heavily on lightweight design as aviation does. On the one hand, optimum strength is crucial, on the other hand, weight must be kept to a minimum. DELO has developed its new, two-component epoxy resin especially for lightweight structural joints in aircraft interiors, focusing on fast build-up of strength.
