SS White Technologies, the leading provider of flexible rotary shafts for the aerospace industry is the supplier of flexible shafts that transmit power to activate the critical Thrust Reverser Actuation Systems (TRAS) on the CFM LEAP 1-B turbofan engines that powered the first flight of the B737 MAX 10 aircraft.

SS White provides a set of flexible rotary shafts per LEAP 1-B TRAS that transfer power and enable safe operation during flight and deployment of the thrust reverser actuation systems during landing.

In addition, all aerospace flexible shaft products are designed to one of the industry’s highest performance criteria by utilising a computer modelling software program developed by SS White called Perflexion.

This program allows the design engineers to more fully model the behavioural characteristics of the wire bundles within the shaft core and arrive at an optimum product that provides maximum bending flexibility and torsion strength while allowing minimal torsion deflection with up to a 30% improvement above current industry standards.
