SS White Technologies (Hall 6, A60), supplier of aerospace flexible rotary shafts, is providing its shafts to transmit power to activate the thrust reversal actuation systems on the nacelle of the Pratt & Whitney Pure Power engine for the Airbus A320neo. The company is also providing flexible shafts to activate bomb bay doors on the new Kawasaki P1 maritime patrol aircraft presently under development to replace the PC-3 fleet. The first two operational aircraft were delivered in March. SS White design engineers use the in-house-developed computer modeling software program Perflexion to design the flexible shafts.
