We manage the unique challenges of noise, vibration and weight in flight-critical components and systems with legacy parts, as well as the newest technological innovation. From our first rubber-to-metal engine mount in the 1930s to today’s advanced flight control systems, we have provided real-world solutions for the aerospace industry’s toughest problems.
Our solutions minimize the noise and vibration transmitted from the engine to help ensure your passengers experience the quietest ride possible. LORD cockpit controls and inceptors enable safer flights, reduce pilot workload and enhance pilot comfort. They provide functional and ergonomic interfaces between pilots and various aircraft fly-by-wire systems (flight control systems, engine control systems, landing gear systems).
Our cockpit controls and inceptors enable safer flights, reduce pilot workload and enhance pilot comfort. They provide functional and ergonomic interfaces between pilots and various aircraft fly-by-wire systems (flight control systems, engine control systems, landing gear systems). Our cockpit control solutions are compact and lightweight and can be seamlessly integrated into cockpit designs. LORD flight control inceptors can be tailored to sidestick or yoke-based cockpit layouts
Our cockpit control inceptors provide an ergonomic interface between pilots and various aircraft systems - translating pilot movements into flight commands. The fly-by-wire (FbW) side stick solutions use rotary variable differential transformers (RVDTs), potentiometers, and resolvers to capture motion and interface with the flight control computer. Adding active features allows the ergonomic interface to be tailored to the flight condition or mission. Compact and lightweight, the active side stick shown here has a two-axis drive system and was engineered with near-zero backlash and smooth action. Advanced motor controls enable active tactile cueing for variable breakaway force, stiffness and damping.
Our innovative engine attach geometry reduces complexity and part count. Unlike traditional clevisyoke mounting systems, our tangential system is 10-20 percent lighter, takes up less space and allows engines to be attached or removed in less than 10 minutes without load-leveling equipment or special tools.
We provide actuators for flight control surfaces, such as elevator and aileron trim tabs, as well jamming override actuators and variable force feel actuators for pitch control. Our actuators are designed for safety with the inclusion of over torque limitation, dual load path and redundant sensors - all according to application requirements. Our electromechanical actuators have very compact designs thanks to a ‘design-to-machine’ approach.
