Our rugged Linear and Rotary Actuators are used in various commercial, business and military aerospace and defense applications such as flaps, surface trim, canopy, cabin doors, ram air doors, valve control, cargo locks, weapons systems and much more. We can design individual custom rotary or linear actuators or develop complete custom aircraft actuation systems for your application. Our vast experience and extensive engineering capabilities allow us to deliver a unique actuator design to meet your requested technical specifications.
