industry’s leading performance-
shafts for the rudder trim control systems on the Gulfstream G100, G150 and
G200 business jet platforms.
The aircraft’s “flight control system power drive units” in the aircraft’s tail sections
transfer power through flexible shafts that rotate to activate a linear actuator that
controls the rudder trim during flight.
S.S. White’s POWER-FLEX aerospace qualified flexible rotary shafts are
uniquely engineered to transmit the proper amount of torque to the linear
actuator that establishes and controls precise rudder trim.
In addition, all aerospace flexible shaft products are design
ed to one of the
industry’s highest performance criteria by utilizing a unique computer modeling
program developed by S. S. White called PERFLEXION. This program allows
design engineers to fully model the behavioral characteristics of the wire bundles
within the shaft core and arrive at an optimum product that provides maximum
bending flexibility and torsional strength while allowing minimal torsional
deflection with up to a 30 percent improvement above accepted industry
