MCAM KyronMAX® PEEK Hydraulic Actuator for Piston Rods

Aerospace KyronMAX PEEK th e rm oplasti c Tolerances p ing Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials KyronTEX Products KyronMAX ess ze d Number of parts tions c ro In hydraulic actuation systems the position of the piston rod is monitored by a mechanical device that translates the position of the rod into a turning angle which is converted into an electrical analogue signal. The positioning information has to be extremely accurate as it controls the valves for the hydraulic actuator which is used in various flight applications. Forged metal can be used in this application but has to be corrosion treated and is heavy weight. olu S d oa o p t i mi Provide an extremely stiff material for use in hydraulic environment Hig h Challenge L Hydraulic Actuator for Piston Rods Cost per part Non-recurring costs Key Requirements High flexural strength Chemical resistance Skydrol Dimensional stability from -60 to 120 C -76 to 248 F similar to metal Excellent fatigue resistance Fire resistance Customer Benefits Less maintenance due to its corrosion resistance Highest flexural strength Freedom of design Hydraulic Actuator for Piston Rod in aircraft wing Lower cost through efficient molding process MCAMconnect Metals vs KyronMAX Why KyronMAX PEEK Strength to Weight Ratio 500 This carbon fiber filled PEEK based material in combination with the proprietary molding process of Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Solutions - Engineered Solution provides solutions with stiffness higher than metal where needed. 400 400 300 300 200 200 100 m Ti ta n in u Al um Ti ta n m in u Al um St ee 0 St ee l l M ag ne si si um um 0 iu iu m m Kr Kr on on M M AX AX S S Ky Ky ro ro nM nM AX AX Ky Ky ro ro ES nT nT ES EX EX 0 0 90 90 PE PE EK EK Ky Ky ro ro nM nM AX AX XS XS 100 M ag ne Specific Specific Strength Strength Mpag Mpag cm3cm3 500 Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials vs KyronMAX 75000 After the careful selection of the polymer matrix according to the custome

r requirements in this case PEEK for hydraulics the part design gets analysed. Areas of high load are determined and carefully examined. The customer adapts the part design for the required processing conditions. The result is a non-metallic high load carrying part that provides the typical chemical resistance and weight of a high performance plastic and the metal like stiffness in the high stress areas.
