Landing Gear Joint Testing
An aerospace company wants to test their new spacecraft assembly and design by testing its landing gear joints.
An aerospace company wants to test their new spacecraft assembly and design by testing its landing gear joints. They want to ensure there are no flaws in the gear shock absorber design and can handle the applied forces when the craft lands from a flight.
Interface’s WTSLP Wireless Stainless Steel Load Pins can be installed and replace the normal pin joints. The spacecraft undergoes multiple drop tests at different heights, where the forces applied on the load pins are measured. The force results are transmitted wirelessly to the WTS-BS-4 USB Industrial Base Station in the customer’s computer, and the WTS-BS-1-HA Handheld Digital Display for multiple transmitters.
The customer was able to validate their spacecraft’s landing gear structure is working effectively and safely.
