Delapena’s alignment hone tooling dramatically cuts aircraft maintenance time

Renowned honing machine and tooling manufacturer Delapena Honing Equipment Ltd., has made a major breakthrough in the maintenance of aircraft, allowing on-site honing of critical components, and getting aircraft back into service quicker.

June 28, 2012 - PRLog -- Delapena Honing Equipment’s new range of alignment hone tools add to the Companies reputation as an industry leader providing complete honing solutions.
The revolutionary alignment hone tools allow major structural elements of aircraft to be re-machined in-situ, eliminating the need for expensive dismantling and reassembly of complex assemblies, resulting in major savings in time and cost
Working in conjunction with leading aerospace OEM’s and maintenance companies, Delapena has created a range of tools that will produce precision honed surfaces and maintain the centerline of two independently honed bores. “The ability to hone bores on assemblies such as landing gear, without having to remove them from aircraft is a significant breakthrough in reducing aircraft downtime and reducing maintenance costs,” says David Arthur, Managing Director, Delapena Honing Equipment.
The Delapena Alignment Hones are manufactured to customers’ specific requirements and applications include the honing of side stays, gear ribs, retract jacks and engine pylons. Each alignment hone is supplied as a kit including abrasives, driveshaft, honing oil and truing sleeve to ensure that everything that is needed to complete the process is “in the box.”
Founded in 1927, Cheltenham England-based Delapena Honing Equipment Ltd. continues more than 85-year history of providing quality and innovation in the bore sizing and finishing industry. For additional information, visit www.delapenausa.com or call (USA) 1 314-779-4398
