Hose Deployment Actuator
The customer is a leading global technology and services innovator that prides itself on its ability to provide advanced technical solutions to the most challenging problems that land, sea and air have to offer.
As a trusted and proven supplier in military aircraft air-to-air refuelling, the customer was presented with a major challenge to overcome. When the in-flight refuelling equipment was serviced on the ground, the heavy duty fuel hose had to be rewound via a manually operated handle. This process was manually arduous, time consuming and potentially unsafe. In a high pressure and time-critical military environment it was essential to find a faster, safer and more efficient method to wind the fuel hose.
