Romax uses its electro-mechanical knowhow for collaborative Aircraft actuator design
Titled Electro-Mechanical Magnetic Actuator Systems, the EMMAS project was part funded through the Aerospace Industrial Strategy (Advancing Technology Capability) competition. This competition was setup by the ATI (Aerospace Technology Institute), InnovateUK and BIS (Department for Business, Innovation and Skills). The project developed a novel aircraft actuator system that is mechanically robust, fault tolerant, thermally controllable and suitable for extreme environments.
Through a successful collaboration of experts in their field, the project brought together novel magnetic direct drive technology, actuator control and complete electromechanical system design and analysis.
From methodical conceptual architecture selection to detailed design and analysis, this project has demonstrated the ability to realise high reliability of a controlled electromagnetic mechanical aircraft actuator to industry standards.
