Extension of the helicopter gearbox test benches
Multi-Load-Sim (MLS) - Simulation of multidirectional loads on a tail rotor gearbox including integration into an existing test rig
In course of a company expansion in 2015, Zoerkler established its own test stand center for testing helicopter and automotive transmission systems. These test stands have been expanded as part of a subsidized project. The goal of this project was the extension of the existing helicopter tail gearbox test stand, which enables realistic simulation on the test stand of the loads occurring on the helicopter's tail rotor gearbox during flight. This type of test execution increases flight safety enormously. Completion of the project was in the end of May 2017.
This project is supported by federal and state funds
