Tactair Fluid Controls is developing a new electromechanical uplock system for doors and landing gears. Compared with traditional mechanical systems, the new uplock offers airframe manufacturers an opportunity to introduce significant weight-savings as well as design flexibility.

U.S.-based Tactair designs and manufactures a range of fluid-power and motion-control products, and has made the design and manufacture of uplocks a strategic focus, particularly those sized for business and regional aircraft. The company has a technology demonstrator of its electromechanical system here at the Farnborough International airshow (Hall 2 Stand B1).
