Electro-Hydrostatic Actuation Proves Itself in Next-Generation Machines

Electro-hydrostatic actuators (EHA), widely used in the aerospace industry, are opening new possibilities for machine builders because they combine the best of electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic technologies. Moog developed an EHA (see Figure 1) that is ideal for many industrial applications and competitive with traditional hydraulic solutions, lowering energy and investment costs. This technology is now proven in some very demanding industrial applications and is generating increased attention from design engineers and machine builders around the world. Full Article

Pumping Up Fuel Performance in Gas Turbines

With today’s escalating energy costs, the manufacturers of Dual Fuel Gas Turbines are constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency, and meet ever more stringent emissions requirements. Key to these needs is the Liquid Fuel Metering function, which directly controls the supply of liquid fuel to the turbine burners (e.g. comparable to diesel). Moog has been working on fuel metering technology to improve performance for over 20 years. Before we examine Moog’s latest development, let’s take a look at how this latest solution has evolved.

More Control, Less Cost: Inside the Moog Speed Controlled Pump System

Working with a variety of customers in many demanding industries gives Moog's engineers a unique opportunity to learn about issues that are concerning today's machine builders. The two we hear most often is the need for energy efficiency and how to lower total cost of ownership. These were the key drivers behind the latest innovative development Moog has recently launched into the marketplace - the Speed Controlled Pump System (Moog SCP System). This article discusses our experience with testing this system on a customer's hydraulic machine and the impressive energy savings experienced in the application. This test represented a good example of an application for hydraulic control where the need for energy efficiency is growing globally and the cost pressures are high. Full Article

New Welding Process for Jet Engines of the Future

When a world-leading developer of advanced manufacturing processes decides to develop friction welding to a point where it can be viable for securing the blades on jet engines, it stands to reason that any partners it chooses will have a similarly robust pedigree. Aiming at producing a machine that would be the biggest in the world and change your business out of all recognition, you know from the outset that the people with whom you find yourself in harness are going to need matched abilities and complementary skills. Joining forces with such a partner will give you confidence that the result of the project will be more than the sum of its parts. Full Article
