ITT To Showcase High-Torque, Precision-Controlled Utility Actuator During 2013 Paris Air Show

Stocks in this article: ITT

In conjunction with its participation in the 2013 Paris Air Show, ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) will showcase a high-torque, precision-controlled actuator technology that allows modulation in an aircraft’s RAM air door during flight. This is the latest advancement in ITT’s rich history of actuator products and will enable the next generation of aircraft to increase fuel efficiency.

“At ITT, we are focused on partnering with aircraft manufacturers to develop technologies and provide innovative solutions that will allow our customers to achieve their goals,” said Munish Nanda, president of ITT’s Control Technologies business. “Aircraft operators are continuously looking for ways to reduce operating costs and increase reliability, and our customers count on us to provide highly engineered solutions that help them make tangible improvements.”

Traditional National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) inlets underneath aircraft are fixed in one position to allow fresh air to flow inside the aircraft and pressurize the cabin with minimal drag. ITT’s latest actuator works in conjunction with a series of sensors and the environmental control system’s software to optimize the amount of air flow throughout changes in elevation and temperature. The result is a boost to the aircraft’s fuel efficiency, providing lower operating costs and a smaller carbon footprint.

At the Paris Air Show, ITT will highlight several additional new technologies including a compact linear actuator designed to open and close inlet doors upon takeoff and landing, thereby reducing noise and enabling the aircraft to fly into populated areas; several new switch products that are being used on next generation thrust reverser systems for major aircraft manufacturers; and the Enidamp™ Advanced Damping Treatment System, which helps keep vibration levels low and aerospace systems working as intended.

Other technologies include Cannon connectors such as the newly qualified MIL-DTL-38999 Series III composite lightweight connector and the Trinity MKJ Series 5 mini-circular connector, a lightweight connector that has a unique internal ratchet mechanism system designed to handle robust shock and vibration environments.

ITT designs and manufactures a broad array of highly engineered technologies for the aerospace industry, including customer engineered components that minimize vibrations and noise, actuators and dampers for overhead stowage bins, devices that allow seats to recline and return to the upright position with the touch of a button, connectors that are critical for everything from navigation to in-flight communication systems along with pumps, valves and switches that are essential to nearly all critical aircraft systems.
